Barcelona youngster a solution to Liverpool’s faltering midfield?

Liverpool’s midfield deficiencies were exposed by Arsenal‘s classy midfield on Saturday night, with many suggesting it’s a priority for Brendan Rodgers to strengthen the engine room of his team.

One potential signing being linked with a move to Merseyside is Barcelona youngster Sergi Roberto – a midfielder likened to Xavi.

The 21 year old made his Barcelona debut under Pep Guardiola in 2011 and has represented Spain Under 21s, but has featured for only 17 minutes under new boss Gerardo Martino this season.

According to Spanish newspaper El Mundo Deportivo, Roberto has a €20million release clause.
