Iago Aspas believes Liverpool’s minimum target for the season has to be a top-four finish.

The uncapped Spaniard has failed to open his Reds account since completing a £6.7m move to Anfield from Celta Vigo during the summer transfer window.

Liverpool are currently second in the Premier League table, and injured Aspas feels the Reds have the quality to secure a Champions League place.

“I think we should be aiming to finish in the top four – I think it is the minimum for this club,” Aspas told Liverpool’s website.

“The squad is very good; you can see that when you consider it player by player.

“My ambition is to play as many times as possible and to try to do it in the best possible way to finish in the top four.”

Aspas revealed he is settling into life at the Merseyside outfit after his summer switch from Spain.

“Watching football games, because I am mad about football, and playing video games on the internet with my friends,” Aspas added.

“It is very quiet and I like a quiet life very much. I am relaxed and happy; I spend almost all the time at home with my girlfriend, that’s why it’s
easier.

“Life is not very different to my place because it rained there too, even though it was not as cold.

“I am learning the language little by little, particularly by listening to it here.

“It is a little bit more difficult here because of the Scouse accent, but I will learn little by little.”
