We had earlier reported that the 26 year old was desperate to quit in the summer after failing to nail down a starting eleven spot in Brendan Rogers’ overwhelming side this season. However the Spaniard’s agent has rubbed all speculations linking his agent with a move away from Anfield.
There is no possibility of a return of Iago in Spain. Iago has a four-year contract with Liverpool and is happy to be with the Reds. Yes he would certainly like to play more. But Rodgers is happy and is not thinking about a transfer.
On being asked whether Aspas would consider a move to Italy to test him in new waters, Baster said, “No chance to even see Aspas in Italy, at least as things stand today: “I have never spoken with any Italian club, Iago Aspas in Liverpool is well and happy for the team was a great season. “
The Spaniard was snapped up by Liverpool for £7m after impressing with Celta Vigo in the 2012/13 La Liga season. However, Aspas has just featured 14 times for the Reds this campaign and netted only once for the Reds, his solitary strike coming in the 2-0 win over Oldham Athletic in the third round of the FA Cup earlier in the season.
