‘Proposal is on the table’ – Liverpool have made a personal terms offer to 17-year-old valued at €720,000

Liverpool have reportedly offered PSG U19 starlet Ismaël Gharbi a contract and while his priority is to stay at PSG, he is disappointed with his playing time.

France Football journalist Fabrice Hawkins took to Twitter on Wednesday to report Liverpool want to sign Gharbi and have made an offer to the play to signal their intent.

Hawkins was careful to clarify that Gharbi’s preference is to stay at PSG but he is unhappy with his lack of game time although I struggle to believe that will change at Anfield where competition is just as fierce.

He’s been handed 43 minutes of football this season in cup competitions and so it’s easy to understand why he is disgruntled but if he’s expecting a rapid route to first-team football on Merseyside I think he might be disappointed.

That said, Liverpool have proven to be world-class at promoting young talent under Jurgen Klopp.

Trent Alexander-Arnold is obviously the best example of this but Joe Gomez, Curtis Jones, Caoimhín Kelleher, Joe Gomez and Harvey Elliott are all players that have benefitted from the German’s attention to detail with young players.

It remains to be seen if Liverpool have actually offered Ismael Gharbi a contract and if they have, he could be a fantastic player for them down the line.

Technically, he’s superb. The 17-year-old is so good under pressure and virtually never loses the ball when pressed which gives PSG’s U19 side the ability to squeeze opposition sides high up the pitch and exert their dominance in the final third.

Liverpool’s current midfielders almost seem afraid of turning on the ball so watching Gharbi is amazing as the teenager is so slick and can roll defenders with ease and would give the Reds the ability to play with more freedom in the middle of the pitch.
