Valencia are weighing up a summer move for Liverpool midfielder Luis Alberto who has struggled to break into the first team at Anfield. The young Spaniard joined for a fee of 7million from Sevilla last summer but has only managed nine Premier League appearances and has not played a full 90 minutes.

The 21-year-old is still believed to be highly-regarded by manager Brendan Rodgers but a loan move at a top-flight club may be better for Alberto’s development than another season on the bench at Liverpool. Alberto was highly impressive in his loan spell at Barcelona B in the Spanish Second Division where he scored 11 goals and set up 18.
