Liverpool ready to activate €50million exit clause to seal special signing: Wonderkid would be amazing at Anfield

Liverpool are ready to trigger the €50million exit clause in the contract that binds Barcelona and Gavi with just one year remaining on their agreement.

A midfield trio of Thiago on the left, Fabinho in a deeper more central role and Gavi on the right-hand side with the license to get forward would be special.

SPORT journalist, Jordi Gil, made the claim last week and after watching him play for Spain last night, I’ve now decided he’d be perfect for Liverpool.

One minute after the Barcelona star was withdrawn, Portugal equalised. Maybe it was his absence or maybe it was because Bruno Fernandes went off…

All jokes aside, Gavi was simply sublime with his run and pass breaking the Portugal defence apart in the first half leading to Alvaro Morata’s goal.

Liverpool ready to trigger €50million exit clause to sign Gavi

It’s difficult to believe he’s just 17. And he’s a starter for Barcelona and Spain.

Gavi is a wonderkid and I’d love to see how he would get even better if Jurgen Klopp were to get his hands on the teenager.

The biggest obstacle to Gavi succeeding at Liverpool is his size and frame. His ability and fearless nature mean it’s not difficult to forget that he’s only just maturing physically.

The Premier League is by far the most physical of the top 5 leagues in Europe. That’s not to mention the game is played at an altogether more rapid pace.

Liverpool look set to miss out on signing 22-year-old Aurelien Tchouameni and they cannot afford not to bolster their midfield ranks.

It’s not clear where Fabio Carvalho will play when he joins the club this summer but his attacking instincts are too good to be wasted in Liverpool’s functional midfield.

However, Carvalho playing ahead of Gavi, Thiago and Fabinho would be exciting to watch. Throw Luis Diaz and Mohamed Salah into the mix and that’s one of the most thrilling attacking lineups out there.

Carvalho might not be ready to start regularly and he will need time to adjust to Klopp’s tactical demands but learning from Roberto Firmino, in particular, will help him settle in very quickly.
