The Spain international left-back will have a medical and discuss personal terms on Merseyside after the Reds on Tuesday agreed to buy him for an initial fee of around 12 million pounds.
Following the agreement, Moreno was withdrawn from the Sevilla squad beaten 2-0 by Real Madrid in Tuesday's Super Cup match in Cardiff.
The 22-year-old, born in Seville and a product of his home city club's academy, is looking forward to his move -- but still has mixed feelings.
He told Spanish newspaper ABC: "Liverpool are a great team and of course I'm super-motivated. I hope things go well. I am living a strange situation because I'm leaving the club of my life.

"I was always aware of the two teams trying to agree a deal. I never got into that but Sevilla felt that Liverpool's offer was good and I am going.
"I have many feelings together. What happened on the pitch, with the fans, will remain with me forever and I could not help but mourn [my departure] because I did not expect it.
"First came the parting with colleagues, then with the fans... all very complicated."
