Arsenal might have missed out on one of their transfer targets following the news that Liverpool defender Alberto Moreno is closing in on a move to Spanish La Liga champions Barcelona.
The news of his impending move to Barcelona was confirmed by Spanish news portal Sport.
It was revealed that the Spaniard will sign a contract with Barcelona in the coming weeks.
The Barcelona transfer is a welcomed move for Alberto Moreno who has endured a largely frustrating spell on Merseyside for the past two seasons following the emergence of Andy Robertson as the first choice left-back at the club.
Scottish national team skipper Robertson is now regarded as one of the best left-backs in the Premier League.
Alberto Moreno signed for Liverpool from Spanish club Sevilla in the summer of 2014 shortly after he led the Spaniards to the first of their three successive Europa League titles.
He was the first choice left-back at the club until the aforementioned Robertson joined Liverpool at the start of last season shortly after suffering relegation with Hull City.
Moreno, 26, has a few months left on his Liverpool contract at the moment and he’s free to move as a free agent upon the expiration of his contract with the Reds.
