Liverpool are on the verge of completing their third major signing of the summer with Spurs target Alberto Moreno en route to Merseyside to discuss personal terms after a €20m fee was agreed with Sevilla, according to reports today.

The Reds have been on the left-back’s trail for several months after Brendan Rodgers sent his scouts to watch the player in action during the course of last season and they would have been impressed by what they saw as the 21-year-old played a key role in helping Sevilla lift the Europa League as well as secure a fifth place finish in the La Liga table.

Speculation last week suggested Liverpool were in talks with the Spanish outfit but were struggling to agree a deal and Tottenham had supposedly tried to hijack the move by tabling a £15m bid which included striker Roberto Soldado on loan for a year.

However, it appears a breakthrough has been reached with the Express citing reports coming out of Spain that claim Liverpool have now agreed a €20m (£16.2m) fee that could rise depending on a number of additional add ons.

The newspaper suggests that Moreno flew in to the UK with his father and agent Javier Moya on Monday afternoon to discuss personal terms where he is expected to put pen-to-paper on a five-year contract.

While there has been competition for his signature, it seems one of Liverpool’s current players has played a key role in luring Moreno to Anfield as it’s believed he attended Luis Alberto’s wedding over the weekend where he was told positive things about the club and dressing room atmosphere.

If all goes to plan, Moreno will become the Merseysiders third major signing of the summer following the acquisitions of Rickie Lambert and Emre Can, and it will be another significant indication that Brendan Rodgers is keen to get his transfer dealings done early this summer.

With Aly Cissokho failing to impress during his year-long loan spell last season and Jose Enrique struggling for fitness, a new left-back was a top priority for the Northern Irishman and he’ll have pulled off something of a coup if he manages to get the signing of Moreno over the line.

    The Lambert to Liverpool deal proves these muppet reporters have no idea what’s going on. It’s pure guess work. Not one of them fools saw the Lambert deal before it happened!!

    He’s not a Spurs target, the reports of Soldado on loan + Etiene + £14m are too stupid for words. Spurs have even said they have no interest in him whatsoever.
