Liverpool swoop for Sevilla prospect Ayala

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez has raided Spain again to lure Sevilla starlet Daniel Sanchez Ayala to Anfield.

The Spanish club have confirmed Ayala has agreed a deal to move to Merseyside after rejecting a professional contract at Sevilla.

Liverpool moved for the 17-year-old after learning he had not signed a professional contract with Sevilla and the Reds will have to pay Sevilla a compensation fee for his signature.

Liverpool are believed to have offered Ayala a three-year deal and he is expected to travel to England next week to tie up the move.
