Liverpool transfers: Sevilla willing to sell Alberto Moreno
Liverpool transfers: Sevilla president Jose Castro says that Spanish club will sell Alberto Moreno if the price is right
Liverpool have been handed a boost in their pursuit of Alberto Moreno after Sevilla confirmed that they are willing to sell the defender if the price is right.
The Reds have been strongly linked with a move for the 21-year-old Spain international, who has also attracted interest from Real Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur, in recent weeks.
We haven’t reached an agreement, but talks haven’t broken down
Sevilla president Jose Castro has now confirmed that the Merseyside club are interested in signing Moreno, while also revealing that the Spanish club are ready to sell the left-back if their asking price is met.
“It’s true that there is interest from a number of clubs, above all Liverpool, in him, but we haven’t had proper conversations about selling him,” Castro said.
“Signing any player from this club has a price and we will decide that price.
“If Alberto Moreno has to stay at the club he will stay, but if a club pays the amount we think is big enough for him to leave, he will leave. But there is no pressure.
“We haven’t reached an agreement, but talks haven’t broken down. We’ll wait and see what happens.”
Moreno, who scored three goals in 29 La Liga games this season, is understood to have a £25m release clause in his Sevilla contract.
