Barcelona are reported to be considering what would be a shock move for former Liverpool midfielder Luis Alberto.
Alberto, now at Lazio, moved to Anfield from Sevilla in 2013, yet did not start a single Premier League game in three seasons and left little impression on the Anfield faithful.
After being loaned back to Spain with Malaga and Deportivo La Coruña, however, the 25-year-old has seemingly found his feet , who has scored 10 goals and assisted 18 more for the Serie A outfit this season.
According to Italian publication
Selon la Gazzetta Dello Sport, les scouts du FC Barcelone étaient au derby romain pour observer Luis Alberto. Le meneur de jeu espagnol a marqué 10 buts et a offert 18 passes décisives cette saison. La Lazio réclamerait 30M€ pour son joueur de 25 ans. pic.twitter.com/pUQ4S4LVSM— FrSerieA (@FrSerieA) April 17, 2018
The player has been with Barca before, having joined their B team on loan in 2012. The club decided against signing him on a permanent basis after a season during which he scored 11 goals. As reports from Italy would have it, though, his recent performances have certainly swayed their opinion.
