‘Matter of time’: Fabrizio Romano shares ‘spectacular’ Liverpool midfield target is close to signing new deal with club

‘Matter of time’: Fabrizio Romano shares ‘spectacular’ Liverpool midfield target is close to signing new deal with club

According to Fabrizio Romano, Barcelona midfielder Gavi is likely to sign a new contract with the club, despite rumored interest from Liverpool.

According to reports last week, the Reds even met to discuss the potential of signing the’spectacular’ Gavi before the window closed.

The 18-year-old is regarded as one of Europe’s most promising young midfielders, having made his professional debut for Spain as the youngest player ever last year.

At the age of 17, the prodigy also appeared in 33 La Liga games for Barcelona last season.

Liverpool were reportedly keeping an eye on his availability due to his contract issue at the Catalan club.

But it appears that he is about to sign a new contract and dedicate his future to Xavi’s side.

Gavi about to sign new Barcelonas deal 

According to Fabrizio Romano, it’s only a’matter of time’ before Gavi signs a new contract with Barcelona.

The Spaniard’s contract now includes a release clause worth approximately £866 million.

Barcelona were unconcerned with perceived Premier League interest.

Jurgen Klopp’s side have been connected with a number of midfielders, including Moises Caicedo and Jude Bellingham.

The Reds appear to be looking for younger midfielders to come in as long-term replacements for Klopp.

Gavi would have been an excellent addition for Liverpool, but if he signs a new contract, he will not be leaving Barcelona anytime soon.

Klopp was able to sign Arthur Melo on a season-long loan from Juventus. However, it appears likely that Liverpool will pursue another central midfielder in future transfer windows.

Thiago Alcantara and Jordan Henderson’s injuries have emphasized the need for further depth at the position.
