Sevilla director of football Ramon Verdejo has told Liverpool up their offer for forward Luis Alberto, while confirming Aston Villa are close to signing defender Antonio Luna.
Reds boss Brendan Rodgers looks to have identified Alberto, who scored 11 goals in 38 appearances on loan at Barcelona B last season, as an extra attacking option.
Verdejo confirmed that Liverpool have made a "very good" offer for the 20-year-old, but insisted only a higher fee will see him join the Anfield outfit.
"Liverpool's interest in Luis is real, but nothing has been signed. They've made the player a very important offer," Verdejo told Sevilla's official TV channel La Bombonera.
"I recall that much of a fuss was made when we loaned him out. As it stands, we all agree that he now has a better value in the market and has grown as a footballer.
"The offer we have on the table is a very good one with respect to where Luis is currently. We don't know what will happen in the future. To date, we haven't accepted the offer."
