Sevilla defender Alves open to Liverpool move

Alves says he still may join Liverpool if the “economical factors” are right.

Chelsea have already been in talks with Alves’ agent, while Real Madrid are also interested in the £12million rated Brazilian.

He said: “It’s true Liverpool tried to sign me, but the clubs didn’t reach an agreement. I like to watch Gerrard playing. He puts 100 per cent effort into every ball.

“Obviously I am not thinking about that right now when Seville is on the verge of winning three titles.

“Going to a bigger club is not something that obsesses me. But there are lots of factors to be analysed and clearly one of them is the economical one.”
