Liverpool fans react to “new Xavi” Sergi Roberto transfer speculation

Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to respond to speculation that Liverpool have their eye on a central midfielder hailed in Spain as the “new Xavi”.

Sergi Roberto, 21, has reportedly got a €20million release clause in his contract with Barcelona and is struggling to find a way into the first team under Gerardo Martino this season.

A report from talkSPORT suggests Brendan Rodgers may try to take the youngster on loan for the rest of the season come January.

Roberto has made 6 La Liga appearances for the Catalan giants, whilst he has played 106 times for Barcelona’s B team.

Here’s a few reactions from Reds fans when they heard Roberto was linked with a move to Anfield this week. As you can see, there’s a fair amount of doubt and cynicism amongst Reds voices!
