Liverpool have agreed a £6million deal to sell midfielder Luis Alberto to Lazio.

According to Press Association Sport, the Serie A side will pay £4.3million up front with a further £1.7million in add-ons dependent on European qualification. Liverpool have also included a 30 per cent sell-on clause in the deal.

Alberto, a signing by former manager Brendan Rodgers, failed to establish himself at Anfield after arriving for £6.8million three years ago and made just 12 appearances in his maiden season.

The 23-year-old Spaniard spent the last two campaigns on loan at Malaga and Deportivo La Coruna.
