Liverpool Closing in on Iago Aspas, Agrees ‘in Principle’ to Sign Spanish Forward From Celta Vigo


Jun 13, 2013

Liverpool has agreed to a deal in principle with Celta Vigo for striker Iago Aspas, subject to documentation being completed.

Aspas scored 12 goals in 34 games in 2012-13 despite playing for a side threatened with relegation until the final day of the season.

During the campaign, he was directly involved in 51 percent of his team’s goals.

The 25-year-old broke into the senior side at the Spanish outfit in 2009 after graduating from its youth set-up.

Aspas can play through the middle or out wide, and he could become Brendan Rodgers‘ second signing of the summer transfer window following a deal for Kolo Toure.

Stay tuned to for more over the coming days.
