Liverpool plot bid for Barcelona’s Gavi

Liverpool have been linked with a number of players already despite the transfer window not opening for another week, and now an update on a potential transfer target has emerged.

What’s the latest?

According to reports in Spain, Liverpool are continuing to try to tempt Barcelona midfielder Gavi to make a move to the Premier League this summer.

As per the report, it suggests that the youngster is Liverpool’s number one target and are plotting a bid of €50m (£42.5m) to trigger his termination clause and Liverpool are waiting for answers which Gavi and his representatives will give in the coming days.

Bellingham 2.0

Following reported interest in Aurelien Tchouameni, Ibrahim Sangare and Jude Bellingham already, it is clear that Jurgen Klopp has identified the midfield as the key area of improvement this summer and if Liverpool could secure a £42.5m deal for Gavi it would be a major coup that could save FSG millions.

Bellingham would reportedly cost the Kopites £101m to sign him from Borussia Dortmund, which is double what the report suggests they would need to pay for Gavi who has shown in his performances for Barcelona this season that he can compete with the Englishman for the midfield spot at Anfield.

Can you beat this impossible Liverpool quiz?! Starting off easy...

The 17-year-old gem who was hailed “spectacular” by Xavi has scored two goals and contributed five assists, creating eight big chances, makes 1.1 tackles on average per game and has been successful in the majority of his dribbles (62%) in 34 appearances for the La Liga giants this season.

Xavi also claimed that the youngster has “no ceiling” after scoring and assisting against Elche at Camp Nou:

“More than anything his work is spectacular. We’re happy to have him and I don’t want to compare him to anyone. There’s no ceiling for him.”

Gavi is only a year younger than Bellingham, but is on a similar trajectory to becoming a wonderkid just like the Dortmund star and if Liverpool can swoop for the midfielder before he has another phenomenal season in La Liga which will inevitably make his transfer fee skyrockets it would be a huge signing for the club.

Should Liverpool sign Gavi?

Yes

No

A quick look at FB Ref tells you that Gavi is similar to the Dortmund star too, with the England international ranking as the third most comparable player to the Spanish maestro.

On that evidence, the teenager has the world at his feet.
