Liverpool secured the services of Luis Alberto, a talented midfielder from Spain, in 2013.
Prior to securing a permanent transfer to Lazio in 2016, he was only able to make 12 professional appearances for the Anfield club.
The 29-year-old midfielder may end up returning to Spain after spending six years with the Serie A team according to reports from Italy.
As per a recent report from Corriere dello Sport (news image provided below), Sevilla are trying to bring the former Malaga loanee back to the club.
The renowned news outlet mentioned that Lazio rejected the Andalusian club’s initial bid of roughly 15-16 million euros.
The Biancocelesti are willing to sell Alberto for around 22-23 million euros (£19.4 million), knowing that Liverpool will receive thirty percent of the agreed fee.
Alberto has played more than 200 times for the Rome-based side, and has been a hit in Italy. With Lazio, he won two Italian Super Cup titles in addition to a Coppa Italia.
Under the management of former Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri last season, the versatile midfielder made 27 league starts and was directly involved in 16 goals (5 goals and 11 assists).
Isco will now join Sevilla on a free transfer after a recent agreement. It remains to be seen if they will increase their offer to sign Luis Alberto as Lazio are now ready to sell.
