Liverpool set to earn around £21m from Luis Alberto’s transfer

By | March 26, 2020

Liverpool are reportedly set for a multi-million-pound cash injection as part of an agreement with Serie A giants Lazio for their ex-player Luis Alberto who could be on his way out from the Rome-based team after the end of the current campaign.

The Spanish winger failed to settle at Anfield following his transfer from La Liga outfits Sevilla back in 2013, making just nine Premier League games in three years at the team.

Alberto was sold to Lazio for around £3.6m back in 2016 and has fared a lot better in the Italian top-tier, founding back of the net four times and providing 12 assists for the surprise Serie A challengers this season.

Lazio may be forced to cash in on the 27-year-old forward if he decides against signing a new contract this summer, with his valuation is believed to be in the region of £69m.

According to the Daily Star, the Merseyside Reds sporting director Michael Edwards asked for a 30% sell-on clause to be included in 27-year-old forward Lazio contract, meaning that the Reds are in line for a cash windfall.

If the Biancocelesti receive the full amount this means for Liverpool that they will receive £21m bonus.
