Celta Aspas on the verge of joining Liverpool

Celta Aspas on the verge of joining Liverpool

Celta Vigo forward Iago Aspas revealed he is close to joining Liverpool after agreeing personal terms with the club.

The 25-year-old Spaniard, who scored 12 goals this season, has been heavily linked with a move away from Celta, with Liverpool touted as his next club.

Aspas admitted he has rejected several offers when he heard the Reds are interested to make a switch for him and cancelled a holiday to discuss terms of contract with the Merseysiders after a transfer fee of £7.2 million has been agreed between two clubs.

He said: “I was forced to cancel my holiday in the Caribbean, but the reason I did more than justifies why. When I heard of Liverpool’s interest I did not hesitate even for a minute. Liverpool is one of the biggest clubs in the world and although I had offers from Italy and Portugal and other countries I decided my future was in English football.”

“I’m calm, but at the same time I’m very emotional about taking such an important step in my career,” he added.
