English Premier League Giants Ready To Trigger Barcelona Wonderkid’s £43M Buyout Clause
- Gavi has so far made 13 appearances for Spanish club Barcelona in all competitions this season despite being a teenager
- The 17-year-old is on the radar of Premier League giants Liverpool who are looking to bolster the squad for next season
- Gavi’s contract with the Catalan club will lapse at the end of 2021 and discussions to extend it have reached an impasse
Premier League club Liverpool are reportedly monitoring Gavi’s situation and are prepared to trigger his £43million buyout clause, Daily Star reports.
The teenage sensation has shown what he is capable of doing and Liverpool are looking to take advantage of Barcelona’s current situation to snap up the teenager.
Many have linked Gavi’s style of play with that of the likes of Xavi and Andres Iniesta as he so far made 13 appearances in La Liga and 19 overall.
His contract with the Catalan club will lapse at the end of 2021 and discussions to extend it have reached an impasse, SunSport reports.
Barcelona are currently seventh on the La Liga standings and their situation got worse having crashed out of the Champions League, bringing an end of 21 years of constant progression to the knockout stages of the competition.
And Gavi is indeed the subject of interest from Liverpool, but Barca are thought to be making a dramatic increase to his clause to fend off interest, with a sum of £840million being reported.
