Alberto Moreno
Moreno will stay at Sevilla, insists club president.

Sevilla insist they are confident of keeping Alberto Moreno at the club despite receiving a number of bids following negotiations with Liverpool.

Reports suggest Moreno, 22, is poised to complete his move to Anfield next week following Sevilla's Uefa Super Cup clash with Real Madrid in Cardiff on Tuesday.

Brendan Rodgers' side were thought to have finally agreed a fee of £16m with the La Liga club after protracted negotiations that initially broke down prior to the World Cup.

Moreno had been expected to follow his countryman Javi Manquillo to Merseyside but Sevilla president Monchi has thrown the deal into doubt after insisting he expects the full back to remain at the club this season, beginning with their meeting with the Champions League holders in the Welsh capital.

"He is training very well, preparing for a really important game for Sevilla and there is nothing more beyond that," Monchi was quoted as saying by Seville-based Estadio Deportivo. "There is a club, that is, or has been bidding for him, but right now we believe he is going to stay with Sevilla and he will play in Cardiff, next Tuesday in the Super Cup."

The same publication initially reported a deal between Sevilla and Liverpool was on the verge of being confirmed after fresh talks.

It was originally suggested that Moreno had already agreed a five year contract with the Merseyside club, a deal that would see the young defender earn €1.5m a year.

Sevilla's stance was perhaps softened by the arrival of Iago Aspas at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium. The Liverpool misfit joined the Europa League champions on a season long loan deal last month after failing to deliver an impact on Merseyside last term.

Earlier this week, Liverpool sealed a move for Atletico Madrid right back Manquillo, signing the 20-year-old on a two year loan deal. The Spain Under-20 international became the club's seventh summer signing following the arrivals of Rickie Lambert, Adam Lallana, Emre Can, Lazar Markovic, Dejan Lovren and Divock Origi.
