Iago Aspas is expected to complete his £7.5million switch to Anfield later on Tuesday after undergoing a medical.
The Celta Vigo striker, who scored 12 goals in the Primera Division last season, cancelled a scheduled holiday to talk terms with the Reds this week.
The 25-year-old, who arrived in England on Monday night, told Marca.com: "I was forced to cancel my holiday in the Caribbean, but the reason I did more than justifies why. When I heard of Liverpool's interest I did not hesitate even for a minute."
He added: "(Liverpool) is one of the biggest clubs in the world and although I had offers from Italy and Portugal and other countries I decided my future was in English football."
The Merseyside outfit have agreed a fee of £7.5m for the left-footed forward, who would ask his potential teammates for help in tackling the English language.
"I hope I will get help from (Jose) Reina, Suso, Dani Pacheco, Luis Suarez, (Philippe) Coutinho, Lucas Leiva and Jose Enrique," he added.
"I'm calm, but at the same time I'm very emotional about taking such an important step in my career."
