Liverpool bound Iago Aspas bags quality assist in final Celta Vigo game v Espanyol

Iago Aspas 2576406b Liverpool bound Iago Aspas bags quality assist in final Celta Vigo game v EspanyolIn all the furore over Luis Suarez, it is easy to forget that Liverpool have been busy in the early part of the summer transfer window.

News broke on Wednesday that Liverpool have signed Iago Aspas from Celta Vigo and there are plenty of reasons for Brendan Rodgers to be optimistic about the Spanish striker.

Liverpool bound Aspas is a hard running striker, not too dissimilar to Luis Suarez in playing style and temperament with a decent eye for goal having claimed 12 in La Liga this season.

On Saturday night, Aspas played his final match for Celta Vigo, a 1-0 win over Espanyol that saw the home side avoid relegation by the skin of their teeth.

Aspas set up the only goal of the game with some fine trickery down the left, skinning his man and centring for Natxo Insa to score.

Iago Aspas’ final assist for Celta Vigo before joining Liverpool this summer is on the video below.
