Liverpool prepared to agree £41.7m fee & £80,000 a week deal to secure signing – Report

Apart from the wide offensive positions, Liverpool need to improve the problematic midfield that has been inconsistent in the current campaign.

Failure to replace Gini Wijnaldum in the center of the park is haunting us big time. The Dutch international was the fittest player at Anfield and played the highest number of games under Jurgen Klopp.

We have won all our league games in the current campaign in which Thiago Alcantara has started but unfortunately, the Spanish international has only started 8 times in the Premier League and has missed 9 games due to fitness concerns.

If reports in the media are anything to go by then the Merseysiders are willing to hire the services of La Roja starlet, Gavi, from La Liga giants, FC Barcelona.

According to Catalan source, El Nacional, Liverpool are prepared to agree the fee of £41.7m i.e. required to activate the release clause to secure the signing of the 17-year-old central midfielder, who can also play effectively in the attacking third.

The Spanish outlet have claimed that Jurgen Klopp wants to have Gavi in his squad and has requested the board to complete the deal. It is stated that Liverpool are tempting the teenage sensation with a salary that would be 50 times the wage he is currently getting at the Nou Camp.

Barca are looking to hand the 4-capped international a new contract. Currently, he earns around £1,600-a-week (Mirror Sport), so, Liverpool are reportedly prepared to agree a deal worth £80,000 a week to bring him to Anfield.

The youngster has already started 13 games in the league for Barcelona, scored a goal and provided 3 assists. In your view, should Liverpool activate the £41.7m clause to sign Gavi?

    Such a contradictory article. States that we failed to replace Gini Wijnaldum and refers to the man signed to replace him, Thiago Alcantara ….. never mind …..

    Whilst the fee is more, the circumstances aren’t massively different to Jude Bellingham, and it’s not worked out too badly for him or Dortmund.

    Gavi has international caps already to his name and top flight experience, but both Gavi and Bellingham are generational talents, and if anyone’s qualified to see that early career promise turns into something special long term, then Klopp’s up there with the best at that sort of thing.

    We needed Gavi sometime back. The board must grant Klopp’s request.

    Thiago was not signed to replace Gini, does not have the same traits and plays a different role. The biggest difference is that the Spaniard is injury prone whereas Gini was always fit.
