Liverpool are interested in signing exciting Barcelona teenager Gavi in the summer, according to a fresh transfer rumour.
The Lowdown: Gavi bursts onto the scene
The 17-year-old has emerged as arguably one of the most prodigious young players in world football, coming through Barca’s academy to become a key first-team player.
The Spaniard’s current deal expires in the summer of 2023, so Barca are running out of time to tie him down to a new contract.
The Latest: Liverpool linked with move for Gavi
Manchester United, Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain are also mentioned in the report, although it is stated that the midfielder ‘does not consider anything’ other than staying at Barca currently.
The Verdict: Barca unlikely to sell
While Gavi could be a magnificent signing for Liverpool, given his amazing potential – Demetrio Albertini has compared him to Italy legend Francesco Totti – it really is difficult to see him leaving Barca any time soon.
At 17, he will surely continue to develop at his boyhood club in the same manner as his current boss, forging a special career for himself at the Camp Nou in the process.
In an ideal world, Gavi would be in a Liverpool shirt next season, but much like the Reds selling their own teenage star in Harvey Elliott at this point in his career, it is almost impossible to see such a transfer developing.
