Liverpool contacted by Valencia for the transfer of Iago Aspas
Iago Aspas didn’t enjoy a great season so far for Liverpool. The former Celta Vigo striker has struggled to adjust to the pace of the league and is currently used as a cover for main strikers Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge.
The Spaniard who joined the Anfield club in the summer, found difficult to fit into the new system of Brendan Rodgers. He could only make 5 league start to the season so far and has yet to open his goal scoring account in the league.
The 26-year-old also suffered an injury which further made life difficult for him at Anfield. He has however, hinted of returning back to some sort of form, after scoring against Oldham in the FA Cup third round tie.
Liverpool have been contacted by Valencia for the transfer of Iago Aspas, possibly on loan

There were some suggestions about sending him on a loan to Swansea City but Liverpool have rejected such ideas. According to Italian journalist Tancredi Palmeri, La Liga outfit Valencia have contacted Liverpool for the possible transfer of Iago Aspas on loan.
While, a loan move would be ideal for Aspas as he needs game under his belt to boost his confidence. Secondly, Daniel Sturridge is fit again and will be in action soon, so, his chances of playing in his preferred position will be less now.
Having said all these, Liverpool should not entertain such ideas of letting him go out on laon. Liverpool do not possess a huge squad and Rodgers certainly cannot take the risk, if one of his main strikers get injured again. He is the only reliable cover for the Reds at present.
Will a move to Spain solve his problem? He needs to play in this new league to get adjusted to the condition and system. So, taking all factors considered, it seems highly unlikely, that Liverpool would allow Aspas to join Valencia on loan.
