Striker Set For Medical After Liverpool Agree €9m Deal

Iago Aspas is due on Merseyside next week to undergo his medical after Liverpool agreed a €9m (£7.7m) deal with Celta Vigo to sign the striker this summer.

With the summer transfer window set to re-open, there is plenty of gossip doing the rounds in the newspapers so we’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest transfer rumours. Today, Liverpool close on the signing of Iago Aspas.

Iago Aspas is due on Merseyside to undergo his medical after Liverpool agreed a €9m (£7.7m) deal with Celta Vigo to sign the striker this summer, according to the Guardian.

The report claims the Reds have had the 25-year-old watched extensively throughout the season and Brendan Rodgers’ scouts would have been impressed with what they saw as Aspas has hit 12 goals in 33 appearances so far this season. However, despite his goals, Celta head into the final weekend of the season sitting in the bottom three of the La Liga table and must try and beat Espanyol on Saturday to have a chance of avoiding the drop.

Whether they manage to or not, they will be without Aspas next season with the Guardian claiming the hitman is due to arrive on Merseyside early next week to undergo his medical ahead of a €9m (£7.7m) move to Liverpool after the Reds beat off competition from Valencia and Swansea to land the talented ace.

Aspas is a pacey striker who can also play out wide or as a second striker, so he will fit into Rodgers fluid system and offer him plenty of options in attack next season. The signing of the Spaniard – who is yet to be capped for his country – follows on from the free transfer acquisition of Kolo Toure from Manchester City and is another example that Liverpool are keen to get their business done early in the summer.

    I could barely deisgn a draw that bad. The only way that the draw could be more annoying is if we swapped Bayern for Man U. That is a terrible draw for us in several ways. I don’t see any way that Man U doesn’t make the final, and we have to go through two of Europe’s best to meet them there. Not to mention the first leg of the quarters being at Anfield. Disappointing.All the same, we have been irrepressible of late, so we can get it done. Chelsea hasn’t had the best time with us this term, as I recall.
