Midfielder Gavi ‘interest’ & Covid latest before Spurs – Liverpool FC Roundup

Liverpool are immediately back into match preparation mode as we head off to face Tottenham, one of the few games left on in the top flight this weekend.


Reds maintain Gavi interest amid renewal block

Barcelona are still slowly sorting through their financial ruin, renewing deals where they can. One who is still not done is young midfielder Gavi, who has stood out this term when given chances while Pedri is sidelined.

Liverpool are “stalking” Gavi with an eye on landing him in 2022, reports Marca, boosted by the fact the Catalan club have not been able to agree an extension to the deal which runs out in summer 2023.

His release clause is €50m but they’d have to sell him for less in summer if they don’t agree a new contract by then, is the word.

Marca temper any thoughts of an immediate deal by saying it’s a “slow” process and even the player himself expects an extension to be ultimately agreed.
