Barcelona prodigy ‘ready’ to make Liverpool move

Liverpool have been handed a massive summer boost, with reports from The Metro claiming that Sergi Samper is ready leave Barcelona to join them.

The 20-year-old is thought of as one of the Catalan giants’ finest young players and has even been likened to Italian legend Andrea Pirlo thanks to his ball playing skills from the base of midfield.

Liverpool have been linked with him in recent days, and now it’s claimed that Samper is keen on a possible move.

The youngster has made only a handful of senior appearances for Barca, and with competition for a starting berth high at the Nou Camp, another season in their ‘B’ team in the Segunda Division is not appealing.

Arsenal are also in the battle, but reports claim that Liverpool is seen as the better option by Samper – who has been capped at U-21 level by Spain and has represented the Catalonia team.
