Fabrizio Romano provides major transfer update on the 18-year-old sensational Barcelona midfielder linked with ‘Liverpool in the past’
The 2022 summer transfer window is officially oover but Fabrizio Romano is still able to provide some updates on players that are possibly being linked with a move to Liverpool.
Writing for CaughtOffside, the Italian journalist said: “One of the biggest young talents in Europe, there is speculation doing the rounds again that Gavi is attracting interest, this time from Bayern Munich, while his name has also been mentioned alongside Liverpool in the past.
“So far, my understanding is that no club has been in negotiations for Gavi because Barcelona consider him a key player for the present and the future.
“For some time there has been an advanced negotiation for his new contract and Barca are optimistic, they consider it a matter of time.”
This effectively rules out a transfer for the 18-year-old and makes it doubtful that he will join Anfield in the near future.
Gavi is still so young, so there is still plenty of time to come to an agreement on a future contract, but considering Barcelona’s virtually limitless spending power, they might not be too eager to let one of their most promising prospects leave the team.
Everyone will be watching to see which midfielder (or midfielders) we try to sign to the team next summer, and Jude Bellingham’s name has been constantly mentioned.
We will need to make some substantial money for the 19-year-old if he is to join the Reds, and many anticipate FSG to do that.
Even if the window for this summer’s transactions has just about closed, we may expect a year or so of rumors as several players’ potential movements are discussed.
Hoping we find the perfect player, at a fair price, and that they greatly enhance Jurgen Klopp’s already fantastic team.
