Alberto Moreno Pérez (born 5 July 1992) is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for Villarreal CF as a left back or as a winger.

Club career


Born in Seville, Andalusia, Moreno came through the youth ranks at hometown club Sevilla FC, spending his first season as a senior with the reserves in the third division. On 8 April 2012 he made his first-team – and La Liga – debut, coming off the bench for Manu del Moral in the last minutes of a 0–1 away loss against Athletic Bilbao.

In February 2013, Moreno was definitively promoted to the main squad. On 4 October he renewed his link with the club, signing until 2018.

On 20 October 2013 Moreno scored his first professional goal, netting the second in a 2–2 draw at Real Valladolid.


On 12 August 2014, it was revealed, after a month and a half of negotiations, that Liverpool had agreed a £12 million deal with Sevilla for Moreno. He was subsequently withdrawn from Sevilla's matchday squad for their 2014 UEFA Super Cup match against Real Madrid that evening. He completed the transfer four days later.

On 30 June 2019, Moreno was released by Liverpool after 5 years, winning 1 Champions League.


On 9 July 2019, free agent Moreno signed a five-year contract with Villarreal CF.

International career

After playing for the Spanish under-21s in the 2013 UEFA European Championship, being first-choice as the tournament ended in conquest, Moreno was called up to the main squad on 4 October 2013 for the last 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Georgia, and he made his debut on the 15th, playing the full 90 minutes in a 2–0 win in Albacete.

Moreno was included in Vicente del Bosque's 30-man provisional list for the tournament in Brazil, but was one of seven players cut from the final squad.
