Liverpool look set to sign striker Iago Aspas shortly despite a delay in getting the transfer confirmed, Sky Sports reports.

The Celta Vigo striker had a medical with Liverpool on Tuesday but flew back to Spain shortly afterwards as the transfer hadn’t been completed.

Aspas scored 12 goals last season for Celta Vigo, helping the club avoid relegation from La Liga.

Liverpool are thought to have agreed a £7 million fee for Aspas and both clubs are just waiting for paperwork to go through before the Spanish striker can be confirmed as a Liverpool player.

Aspas brother and agent, Jonathan Aspas, has said that he believes the transfer will go ahead without a problem.

He said: “There should be no problems. Now only bureaucratic issues remain unresolved.”

The signing of Aspas will help give Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers some depth in the striker department, with Daniel Sturridge set to miss the start of the new season with an injury and the on-going battle to keep Luis Suarez at Anfield.

Suarez has been linked with a move to Real Madrid after he complained at the treatment he has been getting from the English press.

Other transfer targets for Liverpool this season include Sunderland goalkeeper Simon Mignolet and Sevilla midfielder Luis Alberto.
