PHOTO: So much for the rumours - Liverpool target Moreno snapped but not in England

Reported Liverpool target Alberto Moreno was tipped to be in England right about now to complete a move, but that is not the case.

Reports on Monday claimed Alberto Moreno would soon be flying to England to complete a move to Liverpool. Cue a whole host of photographers no doubt getting ready to snap his arrival on Merseyside.

And yet it is a different photograph that is doing the rounds on social media this afternoon, which shows the Sevilla left-back looking relaxed on holiday.

Despite previous suggestions that a fee had been agreed for the 21-year-old, the latest reports suggest Brendan Rodgers refuses to pay over the odds for the Spaniard, thus rendering those stories of an impending plane journey if not obsolete then certainly premature.

Wherever Moreno is currently, it certainly does not look like Liverpool, and with the caption below reading, "Days of relaxation" it appears he will be there for a while yet.

A Liverpool move may still happen in the long run.  But those Reds fans thinking the £4million signing of Rickie Lambert would swiftly be followed by Moreno's capture have been left disappointed.
