Liverpool edge closer to signing of Aspas from Celta

Liverpool became a step closer to signing of highly-rated Celta striker Iago Aspas after agreeing a transfer fee with the Spanish side.

The recent transfer rumours suggested the player is on the verge of leaving club following yet another impressive season in blue shirt. The 25-year-old Spaniard scored 60 goals in 130 outings for the Spanish side and was linked with a move to several Premier league clubs in summer.

Reading have made an official inquiry, but were scared off by player’s transfer fee. Swansea, Chelsea and Tottenham are also closely monitoring the situation with Aspas. However it looks like Liverpool are in the driving seat to sign the forward, as they triggered release clause of £8.6m in his contract and entered the contract talks.
