Imminent Liverpool signing Luis Alberto says its tough to leave Sevilla.

Imminent Liverpool signing Luis Alberto says its tough to leave Sevilla.

Alberto will be the third new arrival at Anfield this summer following the captures of Kolo Toure on a free transfer and Celta Vigo’s Iago Aspas, who will complete a move once all paperwork goes through.

The youngster spent last season on loan at Barcelona B and netted 11 goals.

But he admits it will be a wrench to leave his hometown club Sevilla.

Alberto added: “I’ve always said that this is the club where I grew up, it’s my home.

“I owe a lot to Sevilla, although I’m leaving a little hurt because I haven’t had the chance to show what I can do in the Primera Division.

“It seems like I was going to return to Sevilla, but the Liverpool thing came up and it’s a very important step.

“I’ve had to take a difficult and important decision and I hope I’ve got it right.”
