The 20-year-old is expected to fly into Merseyside for a medical and discuss personal terms later this afternoon after the two clubs settled on a fee, believed to be in the region of £6 million initially with potential add-ons.

A deal is not expected to be completed before the weekend but Alberto will almost certainly be Brendan Rodgers's third signing - after Kolo Toure and Iago Aspas - of the summer by next week.

"I'm very much looking forward to it," Alberto said.

"I'm going to a club like Liverpool, a new culture, a new language, I have to adapt quickly but I'm really looking forward to this big step.

"There are many Spaniards in England and they are doing quite well.

"Seeing all of them succeeding there motivates me even more."
