Luis Alberto says that he "owes" Sevilla as he nears a £6.8m move to Liverpool.

Sevilla forward Luis Alberto has expressed regret at not being able to showcase his ability in La Liga before completing a move to Liverpool.

The 20-year-old is on the verge of a £6.8m move to Anfield after a season spent on loan with Barcelona B.

Despite describing the switch as an "important step" in his career, the Spanish Under-21 international said that Sevilla is still his home.

"I've always said Sevilla is the club where I grew up, it's my home," The Mirror quotes Alberto as saying. "I owe a lot to Sevilla, although I'm leaving a little hurt because I haven't had the chance to show what I can do in the Primera Division.

"It seems like I was going to return to Sevilla, but the Liverpool thing came up and it's a very important step. I've had to take a difficult and ­important decision and I hope I've got it right."

Alberto scored 11 goals for Barca's B team last year.
