Luis Alberto swaps Liverpool for Lazio

Lazio have completed the signing of midfielder Luis Alberto from Liverpool on a permanent deal.

Lazio did not release any details of the deal, but confirmed Alberto had signed along with a picture of the 23-year-old Spaniard completing his medical.

The former Sevilla youngster joined Liverpool in 2013 but struggled to make an impact, with his only two starts for the club coming in cup competitions as he was limited to nine substitute appearances in the Premier League.

He spent the 2014/15 season on loan at Malaga, where he also struggled for playing time, before a more successful spell with Deportivo La Coruna last season, where he scored six goals in 29 LaLiga appearances.
