Sevilla's sporting director Monchi has revealed that Liverpool failed to agree a fee for left-back Alberto Moreno, claiming their pursuit for the Spanish defender is "practically" over.
The 21-year-old, who won the Europa League last season with the La Liga team, has been sought after by Brendan Rodgers for a while but the disagreement over valuation of the player could settle the matter.
"The matter of Alberto is practically settled," Monchi told Spanish newspaper El Correo de Andalucia.
"It was great offer but the player is only 21 years old and it's possible that the catharsis of being with the national team had a positive effect."
Liverpool have already made an impact in this summer's transfer window, with purchases including Rickie Lambert and Emre Can.
