Liverpool fans are particularly excited that the club has reached an agreement to sign Alberto Moreno from Sevilla.

The excitement doesn’t stem from their need for a new left-back or that the protracted transfer is finally reaching its conclusion. No, it’s the fact that Moreno looks like the offspring of most Liverpool supporters’ favourite midfield of the last generation that is creating a bit of a stir.

Many Reds fans have noted that Spain international Moreno looks very much like he is the result of a secret Anfield tryst between Steven Gerrard and Xabi Alonso.
