The 19-year-old is entering the final year of his Liverpool deal, but the club and player are very far part in their estimations of his value.
Canos shone on loan at Brentford, and got Premier League minutes in the final game of our domestic season against West Brom – and most fans were looking forward to seeing him feature heavily in pre-season and work his way into the first-team squad next term.
But this latest news indicates that Canos wants an exit; so he can earn more money and more guarantees of playing time.
Jurgen Klopp has indicated that he doesn’t want youngsters on high wages, but doesn’t want to farm them out on loan either – and Canos clearly thinks he’s at a stage of his development where battling with our fellow talented Academy players for opportunities is beneath him.
It’s a shame, as Canos’s seven Championship goals prove he has serious ability, but if his attitude doesn’t match his potential, perhaps it’s better he departs.
