Liverpool Have Completed Signing of Spain Forward Luis Alberto from Sevilla: Daily Soccer Report

luis alberto Liverpool Have Completed Signing of Spain Forward Luis Alberto from Sevilla: Daily Soccer Report

Liverpool have signed Spanish youth international forward Luis Alberto, subject to international clearance.

The 20-year-old former Sevilla star can play anywhere across the front line, and is Liverpool’s third major signing of the summer after acquiring Iago Aspas and Kolo Toure.

In the 2012-13 season, he played on loan at Barcelona B where he scored 11 goals in 38 appearances. Alberto has represented Spain at the u-18, u-19 and u-21 levels.

“We are all delighted that Luis has decided to join Liverpool,” said Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers.

“He has the correct footballing profile and mentality to be a Liverpool player. I look forward to working with him to develop his talent and he joins a group of young exciting players at our club.”

Alberto added: “I feel very excited, I’ve never felt so excited before but I’m very happy. I think I am the happiest man on earth. I have come here to enjoy moments with the supporters – and I know the supporters will help me to never walk alone. I hope that between us all we can make this club one of the greatest in the world, once again.”

While it’s a promising signing by Liverpool, the big question is whether he can make the huge step-up to the Premier League. He may spend most of the season on the fringes of the squad, but he’s still a good signing for the future.
