Alberto Moreno has reiterated his commitment to Sevilla as a move to Liverpool becomes increasingly unlikely.
The Spain international, who capped a Europa League-winning campaign with a place in Vicente del Bosque’s World Cup squad, was made a priority signing by Brendan Rodgers this summer.
But the Anfield outfit have struggled to agree a fee with the Liga side, and los Rojiblancos sporting director Ramon Rodriguez Verdejo has since revealed that a deal is all but dead.
And now Moreno has distanced himself from a transfer away from Sevilla and insists he is happy to remain at the club and looking forward to reporting back to training at the start of July.
“I never said that I wanted to leave the team,” the 21-year-old told ABC de Sevilla.
“I am happy here, Sevilla is the club of my life. There are many rumours but I only know that on July 7 I report back for training again.
“I am enjoying my holidays. We had a hard year and if I spent the summer thinking about these things [transfer speculation] then I can't rest.
“I am calm and my father and my agent will take care of my future.”
Moreno made 29 league appearances for Sevilla and scored three times last season, locking down a place in the Roja squad, and featured on 12 occasions en route to Europa League glory.
