Liverpool willing to pay Gavi’s release clause

Liverpool are reportedly willing to pay the €50m (£42.5m) release clause to sign Barcelona midfielder Gavi this summer.

What’s the news?

According to a recent report from Sport, the Merseyside club are the biggest threat in terms of the La Liga giants being able to keep hold of their midfield star.

After joining Barcelona’s youth system from Real Betis in 2015, the 17-year-old has gone on to work his way through the ranks and get into the first team at Camp Nou.

The teenager already has 46 senior appearances under his belt, in which he has scored two goals and provided six assists.

This shows how highly he is rated at the Catalan club and why they would be so keen to keep hold of him for the future.

To further highlight how important he has been for Xavi’s side, only three other outfield players at the club have racked up more minutes in La Liga this season that the youngster.

Also, only Ousmane Dembele (16) has contributed more goal-creating actions in the 2021/22 campaign than Gavi (13), showing just how much of an attacking threat he can be for his team.

The teenage talent has shown what a solid player he can be without the ball too, as only Sergio Busquets and Ronald Araujo have made more tackles where Barcelona have won the ball back than him.

In addition, only Busquets has racked up more successful pressures than Gavi, which could be a big clue as to why Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp are reportedly willing to pay such a hefty fee for the 17-year-old given their penchant for suffocating teams with their press.

Taking into account how Liverpool have a track record when it comes to sign teenage talents such as Harvey Elliott and Fabio Carvalho, it seems likely that the Reds would be looking at adding a player like Gavi to their ranks.

With all this in mind, it would be safe to assume that if Liverpool are able to entice one of Barcelona’s top young prospects away from Camp Nou and bring him to Anfield, this would surely have lots of Kopites buzzing given the potential and talent that the Spanish gem has already shown.
