The 26-year-old arrived at Anfield from Celta Viga in June 2013 for £7.2million but is heading back to Spain after just one season in the Premier League.

Sevilla also have the option to sign Aspas on a permanent deal.

Aspas started just six matches for Liverpool last season and scored his only competitive goal for the team in the 2-0 victory over Oldham in the FA Cup.
