Liverpool Agree Deal to Sign Spanish Striker Iago Aspas

iago aspas Liverpool Agree Deal to Sign Spanish Striker Iago Aspas

Liverpool have agreed a deal to sign Spanish striker Iago Aspas for £9 million from Celta Vigo.

The signature for the highly-rated forward was being chased by several clubs including Manchester City and Swansea City, but it appears that Liverpool have landed the deal.

Aspas, who can play as a striker or on either wing, will travel to Merseyside next week for his medical before agreeing personal terms at the club.

The 25-year-old striker will join Liverpool alongside new signing Kolo Toure from Manchester City.

There’s no official word from Liverpool FC yet regarding the signing of Aspas, but the deal is expected to be confirmed next week after the medical is completed.

What do you think about Liverpool signing Iago Aspas? Is Brendan Rodgers making a wise move to snatch Aspas out of the reach of Manchester City? And what do you think the signing means, if anything, about the future of Luis Suarez at the club? If Suarez stays, what will Liverpool’s best attacking lineup be with Suarez, Sturridge and Aspas available? Share your opinions in the comments section below.
