Earlier this week, Tuttomercatoweb reported that Munas Dabbur had set his heart on a move to Liverpool.
The Israel international is one of the most prolific strikers in European football right now, having scored 20 goals in just 30 games for Red Bull Salzburg.

The 26-year-old apparently arrived in Andalusia on Wednesday to undergo a medical and discuss personal terms with the La Liga side set to pay a bargain £13 million – far less than his £23 million release clause.

The former Grasshoppers striker exploded onto the scene last season as his 29 goals fired Salzburg to the Austrain Bundesliga title, plus the semi-finals of the Europa League.
