Reds striker not in first-team plans.
Liverpool plan to loan out striker Iago Aspas to Sevilla for next season, with a deal for the Spaniard to return to La Liga almost complete, according to the Liverpool Echo.
The 26-year-old, who only signed for the Reds from Celta Vigo last summer, has had a highly disappointing first season in English football, failing to adapt to life in the Premier League and making only fourteen top flight appearances, without scoring a single goal.
Aspas had looked impressive in La Liga with Celta the previous season, and now looks like heading back to his native Spain as Sevilla look to make new signings in attack ahead of next season.
With some speculation over the future of leading scorer Carlos Bacca, a rumoured target for Everton, Aspas should provide cover upfront and give Sevilla another option in that position.
Liverpool should also be busy in recruiting new attacking players, with Aspas following star player Luis Suarez out of the Anfield exit, leaving just Daniel Sturridge and new signing Rickie Lambert as the only recognised centre-forwards in Brendan Rodgers’ squad.
It seems likely that a deal for Aspas to leave for this season will eventually pave the way for a permanent move, with the player doing little to show that he has a future with Liverpool.
