Celta de Vigo are keen to resign Liverpool striker Iago Aspas this summer, but are wary their financial limitations could make the move difficult.

Liverpool brought the 27-year-old striker to Merseyside in June 2013 for a reported fee of £7m but the Spaniard endured an underwhelming introduction to English football, scoring just one competitive goal all season.

A return to Spain beckoned last summer when Sevilla signed the player on a season-long loan with the option of a permanent deal this summer.

But Celta Vigo president Carlos Mouriño has suggested the club could make their own offer for the Liverpool misfit.

"We would like to bring back Iago and Joselu [another former Celta striker now playing at Hannover 96] but we know out limitations," Mourino told a press conference. "It is impossible for us to compete with other clubs."

Player conflicts

Aspas' return of 10 goals since returning to Spain has seemingly paved the way for his permanent return to his homeland this summer.

But a switch to Sevilla is not yet certain with the player recently airing his frustration with his squad status at the Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán Stadium, culminating in a outburst on Twitter involving team-mate Gerard Deulofeu and manager Unai Emery.

Marca report the strained relationship between the two players and their boss came to a head on social media ahead of their Europa League clash with Zenit St Petersburg this week.

Deulofeu, on loan at the club from Barcelona after an impressive spell at Everton last season, tweeted: "What doesn't kill you only makes you stronger! Come on," after being left out of the team again.

Aspas retweeted the message in his native Galician tongue, only for Emery to hit back at the pair, responding: "You may have the making of a champion, but it takes time, effort and humility to bring it to bear. Play up SFC."
