Liverpool are looking to be in the transfer market for a midfielder this summer and Gavi is one of the closest linked targets.
As reported by ‘La Porteria’: ‘Gavi has at least two Premier League offers. One is that of Liverpool, willing to pay the player’s release clause of €50 million and also to offer him a star salary, around nine million euros a year.
‘However, both Gavi and his entourage, specifically his father, are very clear about his desire: to renew with Barça and succeed at the Camp Nou’.

The 17-year-old is one of the hottest prospects in Europe and there was a belief that he was willing to leave Barcelona but these reports suggest otherwise.
If the release clause is €50 million, then it could be seen as a move that would appeal to Julian Ward and Jurgen Klopp – even if the wages are higher than usual.
We may have to convince the player and bat off interest from Premier League rivals but this could be a deal that has legs, as long as the Spain international is willing to depart a club he joined when he was just 10-years-old.
