Liverpool move never in doubt

premier leagueLiverpool-bound striker Iago Aspas says a move to Anfield was never in doubt once he heard of the club's interest in him.
The forward has all but agreed a deal which will see him move from Celta Vigo despite receiving plenty of interest from clubs in other countries.

However, Aspas claims the stature of Liverpool within world football was the main reason for choosing them over any other suitors, with offers for the 25-year-old coming in from across Europe.

"When I heard of Liverpool's interest I did not hesitate even for a minute," the 25-year-old is quoted as saying in Marca.

"It is one of the biggest clubs in the world and although I also had offers from Italy and Portugal and other countries I decided that my future was in English football."

Aspas notched 12 goals last season in what was his first La Liga campaign.

Although the deal to bring the Spaniard to Anfield has reportedly hit a snag over a contractual issue, Aspas is expected to join Brendan Rodgers' side in the coming weeks, become the club's second signing of the off-season after Kolo Toure, who will move when his Manchester City contract expires in July.
