Luis Alberto Romero Alconchel (born 28 September 1992), known as Luis Alberto, is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for Deportivo de La Coruña on loan from Liverpool as an attacking midfielder or winger.
A product of Sevilla FC, Luis Alberto was born in San José del Valle, Cádiz, and he spent his first two seasons as a senior with the B-team in Segunda División B, scoring 15 goals in his second. On 16 April 2011 he made his first-team – and La Liga – debut for the Andalusians, replacing another club youth graduate, Rodri, in the second half of a 0–1 away loss against Getafe CF.
In August 2012 Luis Alberto was loaned to FC Barcelona B in a one-year deal, with the Catalans having the option to make the move permanent at the end of the season. He made his official debut on 2 September by playing two minutes in a 2–0 home win over CE Sabadell FC, and finished the campaign as second top scorer in the squad, only behind Gerard Deulofeu.
On 20 June 2013, Sevilla received a £6.8 million offer from Premier League club Liverpool for Luis Alberto, which was accepted. The signing was successfully completed two days later, subject to international clearance, and he made his debut for his new club on 13 July in a 4–0 pre-season friendly win over Preston North End. On 2 August, Alberto scored a spectacular goal, volleying in the second in a 4-0 win over Valerenga in a friendly in Oslo.
On 1 September Luis Alberto made his league debut, playing the last seven minutes in a 1–0 home win against Manchester United in place of Philippe Coutinho. On 15 December, shortly after having scored an hat-trick in an under-21 match with the Reds, he provided an assist for Luis Suárez in the 5–0 away demolition of Tottenham Hotspur.
On 26 June 2014 Luis Alberto was loaned to Málaga CF, in a season-long move. In the league opener, on 23 August, he scored the only goal in a home victory against Athletic Bilbao. He scored against Eibar in a 2-1 win, just seconds after coming off the bench.
Luis Alberto finished the 2014-15 season with 2 goals and 3 assists in 20 games in all competitions, most of which were substitute appearances. Opportunities were limited for Alberto in the 2014-15 season, but Malaga manager Javi Gracia claimed that He had the technical ability to play at the highest level and rated him highly.
On 5 July 2015 Luis Alberto agreed a loan move to Deportivo de La Coruña, subject to a medical on the following day. There, he linked up with former assistant manager Victor Sanchez, who coached him at Sevilla. 
Luis Alberto made his first appearance for Deportivo against Valencia, but was substituted before the break due to an injury. He then started the game against Rayo Vallecano and scored a goal and assist, thereby claiming the Man of the Match award as Deportivo won 3-1. He also scored against Sporting Gijon in the next game. Luis Alberto continued his good form by assisting Lucas Perez's goal in Deportivo's 3-0 win over Espanyol.
