Liverpool have reportedly offered €20 million plus Suso for Sevilla left-back Alberto Moreno.

According to Seville-based newspaper El Desmarque, Liverpool have offered €20 million (£16.2m) plus Suso for Spanish international left-back Alberto Moreno.

Boss Brendan Rodgers is keen to add more players to his squad after securing Champions League football for next season, and a natural left-back is high on the Northern Irishman’s wishlist.

The Reds have been linked with Moreno for quite some time, and the 21-year-old’s excellent campaign in Seville had also attracted the attentions of European champions Real Madrid.

However, Los Blancos opted to extend the contract of the Portuguese international Fabio Coentrao, which has left Liverpool at the front of the queue for Moreno’s signature.

Despite the defender’s reported £24.4m release clause, the Reds are hopeful that the Europa League winners will accept their €20m offer by including promising striker Suso on a season-long loan deal with a view to a permanent transfer as a sweetener.

After Suso’s impressive campaign for Almeria where he played a pivotal part in helping the club preserve their La Liga status against the odds, Sevilla's supporters have reacted favourably to Liverpool’s offer as they buoyantly left a number of comments on social media.

Here are the best quotes from El Demarque’s official Twitter Page and the reaction to the original story:

TRiCampenones: “To me it seems stupendous. Alberto has had some good games but Navarro has been capable of filling in. I hope they sell him.”

Pepe del Pino: “Without doubt, I would take him there if needs be.”

Nikolai: “It’s perfect, I don’t know what they’re waiting for.”

¡¡TRICAMPEONES!!: I wouldn’t even think about it, Suso is a player with magnificent skills and Alberto has had a very average season.”

Daniel Veterinario: “Wow that’s great. If needs be I will take him there.”

JJLP: “The price is good for me. Although €25m should be his price, I’m in if Suso’s loan deal has an option to buy included.”

Leo: “If it’s true, then it’s an absolute priority to sell him now. Don’t give them time to think about it.”

Lolo: “With this money maybe we wouldn’t have to sell anybody else. And finding a left-back is easier than a central midfielder or striker.”

ELADIO: “Sell him now, €20m is €20m, I hope he goes today. Good news.”

Manuel: “I will take him there myself.”

Juanma: “It would be a good deal, but I would ask for Luis Alberto.”

FER: “It’s not that we don’t want him, but to sell a left-back for €20m for me is the deal of the century.”
