Iago Aspas is to reportedly undergo a medical at Liverpool today as he closes on a move from Spanish outfit Celta Vigo.

The striker revealed on Sunday that he had cancelled a summer holiday in order to discuss a switch to England.

He said: "When I heard of Liverpool's interest I did not hesitate even for a minute.

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

Aspas has agreed personal terms with Liverpool, who in turn have settled on a fee with Celta.

The 25-year-old jetted into England on Monday evening to put the finishing touches to the transfer, with medical examinations having to be passed before he can put pen to paper.

Aspas arrived on Merseyside with his brother, who is also his agent, alongside him and is set to become Brendan Rodgers' second signing of the summer - following Kolo Toure into the Anfield ranks.

It is understood that Liverpool have agreed to pay around £7million for a man who netted 12 goals for Celta as they avoided relegation out of La Liga on the final day of the season.

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
