I'm no Suarez replacement, insists Liverpool new-boy Aspas

Liverpool has announced that a deal has been agreed "in principle" to sign forward Iago Aspas from Celta Vigo.

The 25-year-old will officially become a Reds player "subject to documentation being completed".

Aspas is understood to have completed a medical on Wednesday, after which his agent and brother, Jonathan, confirmed that "only bureaucratic issues remain unresolved".

The departing Celestes star, who can play as a center forward or on the flanks, is believed to have cost Liverpool 7 million pounds after an impressive season with a struggling team.

Aspas scored 12 goals in La Liga as Celta narrowly avoided relegation from the Spanish top flight.

The striker becomes the second acquisition for the Reds this summer, following the arrival of Kolo Toure on a free transfer from Manchester City.
