According to the Mirror, Liverpool will place a £4.6 million price tag on midfield outcast Luis Alberto.

The report claims that the Spaniard is wanted by La Liga trio Deportivo La Coruna, Villarreal and Sevilla this summer, and that the Merseyside club are seemingly happy for him to leave on a permanent deal.

The Reds are set for a busy summer as boss Jurgen Klopp takes charge of his first summer transfer window at the club - an important time in terms of shaping the squad to meet his ideas.

With a number of players linked with making a move to Anfield, there will no doubt be some sales along the way as some either don’t fit into Klopp’s plans or aren’t good enough for where the club want to go.

Alberto fits into both categories, having spent the past 12 months back in Spain on loan at Deportivo.

The attacking midfielder was brought to the club by former boss Brendan Rodgers, but despite arriving to plenty of promise, the former Barcelona man has struggled to make any sort of impact.

The 23-year-old appears too lightweight for the Premier League, and it would make sense for all parties involved if the player cuts his ties with Liverpool and returns to Spain.

The Merseyside club are said to want £4.6 million for him, a fair price for a player who still has a bright future.
