La Liga side and Europa League holders Sevilla are set to offer a lifeline to Liverpool flop Iago Aspas, according to reports emanating from Spanish newspaper Marca.

Aspas, who arrived at Liverpool from Celta Vigo last summer, has struggled to make any impression in the English game, with his only goal for the Reds coming against League One side Oldham Athletic in the FA Cup.

A return to La Liga, where Aspas had impressed, would seem to be the best move for all parties, particularly if Liverpool are able to recoup some of the fee that they paid for Aspas’ services just twelve months ago.

With Sevilla having enjoyed a significant windfall after selling star midfielder Ivan Rakitic to Barcelona, following the sales of Alvaro Negredo, Gary Medel and Jesus Navas to the Premier League last summer, they may have money to splash on the right player.

Liverpool must also try and raise funds from selling players, with a £28 million move for Southampton playmaker Adam Lallana looking set to go through in the imminent future.

Bringing in some money from the sale of Aspas, who plays in a similar position to the England international from Southampton, would be likely to allow Brendan Rodgers to strengthen in the other necessary positions ahead of the new season, particularly defensively.
