Liverpool boss Rodgers keen to bring on Luis Alberto development

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers sees new signing Luis Alberto as 'one for the future'.

The former Sevilla winger spent last season on-loan with Barcelona B.

"(Luis) is one who, over the next period of time, we'll see is an outstanding player. He fits what we're trying to do really well," said Rodgers.

"He's a very young player but he's played competitive games, and the philosophy won't be anything new to him.

"He understands the game very well. He's got the right profile of what we want and he's another player who can score goals.

"I'm very much looking forward to working with him and seeing how he develops in the squad.

"There's no pressure. You saw with Philippe Coutinho, who came in at the beginning of the year at 20 years of age, and he was a similar profile - had experience but was young. He set the Premier League alight in his first six months here.

"Luis is big as well and hopefully he can produce for us like many of the Spanish players have done over the years."
