'It wasn't a tough decision at all': Iago Aspas happy to join Liverpool from Celta Vigo
Striker scored 12 goals in 34 league matches as Spanish side avoided relegation from La Liga
Liverpool have signed Celta Vigo striker Iago Aspas for £7m, subject to international clearance.
Aspas scored 12 goals in 34 league matches as Celta Vigo avoided relegation on the last day of the season.
The club agreed a deal in principle last week and the new signing insists Liverpool was always his first-choice destination.
The 25-year-old became Brendan Rodgers' third summer arrival - after Kolo Toure and Spain Under-21 forward Luis Alberto - once personal issues with his agents were sorted over the weekend.
"It wasn't a tough decision at all. I'm really happy to have come to a big club like this one," he said.
"Having weighed up all my options for this window, a massive club like Liverpool was always my first choice."
By then Liverpool already had a deal lined up, having agreed a fee in the region of £7.7million.
"I've not had the chance to talk with the manager at any length just yet but I think that good players can slot into any role and not just one set position," he told liverpoolfc.com.
"I am a quick and skilful player. Together we will achieve a lot of success."
Aspas will join Manchester City defender Kolo Toure and Sevilla midfielder Luis Alberto in being officially registered, subject to international clearance, when the transfer window formally opens.
