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.
