Liverpool poised to make millions from masterstroke move by Michael Edwards in 2016

Liverpool could secure millions from a clause inserted in the terms of Luis Alberto’s transfer to Lazio by sporting director Michael Edwards way back in 2016.

The Spanish midfielder had joined the Premier League club from Sevilla in 2013 for a fee of £6.3m, but he failed to have the desired impact and was sold in 2016.

That deal with Lazio saw the club earn £4.3m plus add ons, and they could yet benefit from another lump sum should his fine form see him find a new challenge in the summer.

Having managed 15 goals and 17 assists across the past two seasons in Italy, the 28-year-old won’t be short of options should Lazio decide to cash in.

Should they choose to do just that, the Echo have reported that he has a release clause of a mammoth £87m, and that Liverpool have a 30% sell-on clause to fall back on.

If Lazio were to get even half of that clause, £43.5m, the Reds could bank a rather handy £13m to boost their own transfer pot for the summer window.

Despite being at his peak, the value of Alberto will no doubt decrease as the seasons progress, with the upcoming period Liverpool’s best chance of getting a hefty bonus sum.

Ahead of the ongoing international break Klopp’s men beat both RB Leipzig and Wolves to give them a winning run after defeats to Fulham and Chelsea at Anfield.

Klopp will be hoping that the current period will help his players get closer to full fitness, with Champions League qualification hanging in the balance.

He said after their latest win: “It’s all about the result. A big fight. If we want three dirty points, I’m fine with that. We had very good moments where we should have done better.

“Defensively the whole game was really good. I didn’t like the start, we weren’t active enough.
