Iago Aspas
Iago Aspas is ready for the next step in his career with Liverpool.

Iago Aspas says the decision to join Liverpool was not a difficult one and is looking forward to working with the club as he takes the next step in his career.

Aspas finally put pen to paper on a deal with the Reds after issues surrounding his ownership were put to rest and the player agreed a long-term contract with the club.

The hitman starred for La Liga side Celta Vigo last season as the side survived in the top flight partly thanks to his 12 goals in 35 league appearances.

And the 25 year old says he found it easy to say yes to Liverpool and that despite interest from other clubs it was always his priority to join Brendan Rodgers' project.

"It wasn't a tough decision at all," Aspas told the Liverpool website. "I'm really happy to have come to a big club like this one.

"Having weighed up all my options for this window, a massive club like Liverpool was always my first choice."

The Spaniard certainly has a high opinion of himself and is hoping to take such confidence and make a mark on the Liverpool squad immediately.

"I am a quick and skilful player," he explained. "Together we will achieve a lot of success.

"I've not had the chance to talk with the manager at any length just yet but I think that good players can slot into any role and not just one set position."

Aspas is Liverpool's third signing in the 2013 summer transfer window. Rodgers is working hard on his attacking line-up, but is also looking to build more depth in defence after Jamie Carragher retired at the end of last season.

Kolo Toure and Luis Alberto will also be lining up in Liverpool shirts for the first time next season, while Rodgers is believed to be tracking Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
