Luis Alberto says he is “looking forward” to joining Liverpool ahead of the Sevilla youngster’s medical at the Reds on Friday.

The 20-year-old is also expected to discuss personal terms with the 18-time English champions after Liverpool agreed a reported £6m fee for the forward.

The Spain Under-21 international impressed during a season-long loan at Barcelona B last term, with the winger scoring 11 goals and making 17 assists in 37 appearances.

And Alberto is hoping to emulate his compatriots who have made the effortless transition from La Liga to the Premier League when he finalises his move.

“I’m very much looking forward to it. I’m going to a club like Liverpool, a new culture, a new language, I have to adapt quickly but I’m really looking forward to this big step,” he told Diario de Sevilla.

“There are many Spaniards in England and they are doing quite well. Seeing all of them succeeding there motivates me even more.”

He added: “I’ve always said that this is the club where I grew up, it’s my home. I owe a lot to Sevilla, although I’m leaving a little hurt because I haven’t had the chance to show what I can do in the Primera Division.

“It seems like I was going to return to Sevilla, but the Liverpool thing came up and it’s a very important step. I’ve had to take a difficult and important decision and I hope I’ve got it right.”
