Celta Vigo striker Iago Aspas will undergo a medical with Liverpool today as he edges closer to a move to Anfield, according to Sky Sports.

The 25-year-old flew to England yesterday to put the finishing touches on his proposed £7million transfer, and will become the club’s second major transfer of the summer after Kolo Toure joined on a free from Manchester City.

Aspas scored 12 goals for Celta Vigo in La Liga this season to help the club avoid the drop, and has chosen a move to Liverpool over other offers from Valencia, as well as clubs in Italy and Portugal.

The Spaniard said on Sunday that playing in the Premier League was his priority, and that he did not hesitate when given the opportunity to join Liverpool.

“When I heard of Liverpool’s interest I did not hesitate even for a minute,” he revealed.

“Liverpool is one of the biggest clubs in the world and although I had offers from Italy and Portugal and other countries I decided my future was in English football.”

Aspas may be given the challenging task of replacing Luis Suarez at Anfield, with the Uruguayan striker being strongly linked with a summer switch to Real Madrid.
