‘Would be a superb signing’: Liverpool can trigger €50m release clause and are ready to smash current salary 50x offer

Liverpool are interested in Barcelona midfielder, Gavi, and have been tipped to complete a ‘super signing’ in the 17-year-old.

This week it was reported by Spanish newspaper Sport that Premier League sides Man City, Chelsea, and Liverpool are interested in signing the young Blaugrana ace while Bayern Munich are also interested.

His release clause is reportedly set at €50million (£41.7m) and talks have continued over a contract renewal at Camp Nou so if the aforementioned clubs want to sign Gavi, they may need to act swiftly.

Gavi

El Nacional reported at the start of January that he’s another player that Liverpool are interested in and they claim that Jurgen Klopp has urged Fenway Sports Group to trigger his release clause.

According to Barca Universal: “Ivan de la Pena, the agent of Gavi, has informed Barcelona that he is receiving a lot of approaches from clubs for the teenage sensation.”

A report from Barcelona-based outlet, El Nacional, claims that the Reds are ready to pay him 50 times what he’s being paid in La Liga.

According to the Daily Mail, he currently earns just €1,900-a-week (£1.6k/week) and so Liverpool would be willing to offer him a contract worth €96,000-a-week (£80k/week) to move to Anfield.

Gavi

Even with the release clause, I imagine signing one of Barcelona’s most promising young players would prove quite challenging yet former Arsenal striker Kevin Campbell believes it’s a deal Liverpool can complete.

He told Football Insider: “He’s another home-grown talent at Barcelona. Gavi also has a bit about him as well, he’s got a real tough streak.

“Going out and buying top players will be difficult for Liverpool because top players want to play week-in, week-out.

“But if you’re getting a youngster in who you can mould and nurture, such as Gavi – wow, it would be a superb signing for them.”

Gavi

The young Spaniard is a fantastic little player and while he’s not even 18 yet, he has a very bright career ahead of him and Liverpool would be making a very smart move bringing him in before he explodes into life.

The Reds need reinforcement in the engine room but Gavi is not what they usually look for in a central midfielder, with Jurgen Klopp’s system relying on its marauding fullbacks for creativity which places the bulk of the defensive work in transition on its midfielders.

This wouldn’t favour Gavi’s playing style but having said that, his ability to wriggle away from a high press means that he would offer Liverpool an entirely different way of playing and could see them further continue their transition to possession-based attacking football.
