Liverpool are close to completing the signing of Alberto Moreno, who is expected to complete his medical by today or tomorrow.
The 22-year-old was withdrawn from the Sevilla side that faced Real Madrid in the UEFA Super Cup and had a tearful farewell in Cardiff.
“Liverpool are a great team and of course I’m super-motivated. I hope things go well,” Moreno said.
“I am living a strange situation because I’m leaving the club of my life. I was always aware of the two teams (trying) to agree.
“I never got into that but Sevilla have understood that Liverpool’s offer was good and I am going.
“I have many feelings together. What happened on the pitch, with the fans, will remain forever etched on me and I could not help but mourn because I did not expect it.
“First came the parting with colleagues, then with the fans… all very complicated.”
He will undergo a medical and then the club can officially announce his signing, but courtesy Twitter, we have the first picture of Moreno in a Liverpool away kit. Though the image is not distinct but we can figure out who the player is.
