However, Barcelona are keen on holding on to their prized possession. They are hoping to tie him down with a new deal.
Liverpool are keeping tabs on the ongoing contract negotiations between Pedri and the Blaugrana. The Spaniard’s contract is up for expiry in the summer.
Meanwhile, the Catalan club, who remain in financial turmoil, might still require to move some players on to balance the books. Pedri is one for the future, having already made over 50 appearances in Barca colours as well as earning a full international debut for Spain.
Liverpool weighing up Pedri signing
Pedri joined Barcelona from Las Palmas last summer. Since then, he has made staggering progress in his career. Before his arrival, he was widely regarded as one of the most promising youngsters.
The 18-year-old has been impressive with the levels he has shown with his performance. The Spanish midfielder has already become a key player for Barcelona and the Spanish national side.
In fact, his role has grown in importance since he has played about 70 games in the past year for club and country. The player’s development has alerted foreign clubs who are now hoping to steal him away from Barcelona, Liverpool being in the line.
Liverpool had a quiet transfer window where they chose not to make too many additions to the squad. Ibrahima Konate was the only addition. The Reds decided against signing a replacement for Georginio Wijnaldum.
Instead, Klopp zeroed in on Harvey Elliott as a potential successor for the Dutchman. The youngster has received praise from all quarters. With James Milner in the twilight of his career, Liverpool could perhaps do with another midfield addition.
Liverpool are preparing an £88,000,000 offer for the midfielder in the hopes of convincing Barcelona to sell amid their financial issues.
Manchester City are also watching the situation unfold and might be cooking up a surprise move.
