Liverpool will take their summer spending past £100million after chief executive Ian Ayre flew to Spain to complete the signings of Alberto Moreno and Javi Manquillo.
They are understood to be close to agreeing a £20m fee with Sevilla for their 22-year-old left back and Ayre is expected to negotiate a two-year loan for Atletico Madrid right back Manquillo. It will include an agreement to sign the 20-year-old in a permanent £6m deal.
Liverpool have spent almost £90m on Adam Lallana, Rickie Lambert, Dejan Lovren, Emre Can, Lazar Markovic and Divock Origi.
Manager Brendan Rodgers indicated that there would be more arrivals after his side beat Manchester City in a penalty shootout after a 2-2 draw at New York’s Yankee Stadium.
‘We still have some business to do,’ said Rodgers. ‘We have some positions that we want to fill so by the end of August we’ll have a strong squad to go forward with.’
Jordan Henderson, who scored Liverpool’s first goal, said: ‘The new signings are very good, and I hope they can kick on and strengthen us.’ – Daily Mail
