Some Liverpool fans have laughed off suggestions that Liverpool will look to sign Barcelona youngster Pedri.
Jurgen Klopp will likely be looking to bring in new signings in the summer transfer window in order to add a freshness to his squad.
At times this season, Liverpool have looked jaded both physically and mentally, highlighting the need for new faces to arrive in the coming months.
While Liverpool’s midfield is well-stocked and the least of Klopp’s worries, that hasn’t stopped them being linked with an exciting player in that part of the pitch.
According to The Mirror, Barcelona are looking to fend off interest from the Reds in Pedri, with the 18-year-old a hugely talented prospect. The midfielder has a £70m release clause in his current contract, but the La Liga giants want to increase that to a whopping £350m in a new deal.
Liverpool fans mock Pedri claims
A number of Liverpool supporters took to Twitter to give their thoughts on Pedri moving to Anfield, with few believing that such a move will happen.
“£70million, but why?? Who is he?? That’s a joke for sure”
“This is way too risky, £70million on a 18-year-old. Yes he has bags of talent but he still needs to grow in this Barca team“
“He’s very good but he won’t leave Barca“
“We are too skint“
