ESPN FC: Are Liverpool serious title contenders?

Alberto Moreno admits he will "mourn" his departure from Sevilla but his impending move to Liverpool has left him "super motivated".

The Spain international left-back will have a medical and discuss personal terms on Merseyside after Liverpool agreed to buy him for an initial fee of around £12 million.

  • "Brendan Rodgers has used the Luis Suarez bounty to strengthen the squad's depth and multiply his options for what will be a busier season than last. This could be the preparatory season for Liverpool to mount another serious title campaign in 2015, when all the new players have bedded in. Patience will hopefully be a virtue that is ultimately rewarded"

Moreno was withdrawn from the Sevilla squad beaten 2-0 by Real Madrid in Tuesday's Super Cup match in Cardiff.

The 22-year-old, born in Seville and a product of his home city club's academy, told Spanish newspaper ABC: "Liverpool are a great team and of course I'm super motivated.

"I hope things go well. I am living a strange situation because I'm leaving the club of my life.

"I was always aware of the two teams trying to agree a deal. I never got into that but Sevilla felt that Liverpool's offer was good and I am going.

"I have many feelings together. What happened on the pitch, with the fans, will remain with me forever and I could not help but mourn [my departure] because I did not expect it.

"First came the parting with colleagues, then with the fans ... All very complicated."
