Liverpool are ready to offer Barcelona prodigy Gavi FIFTY times his current salary to seal £ 80,000-a-week transfer

LIVERPOOL are reportedly ready to offer Barcelona starlet Gavi nearly FIFTY times his current salary to sign him.

The 17-year-old broke into La Liga’s first team this quarter and caught the attention of Jurgen Klopp.

And although he’s only made four top-flight appearances, he’s already convinced the Anfield boss to try and make a stunt for him.

Gavi currently earns around £ 1,600 a week at Camp Nou.

But El Nacional claim Liverpool are willing to pay him £ 80,000 a week in order to secure his signature.

The same outlet also indicates that the La Masia graduate sees his future in Barcelona.

However, his release clause remains at a relatively low amount of £ 41.7million and the financially struggling Catalans could be tempted to take advantage of the playmaker.

Barça have already eased the pressure on their payroll by transferring Philipe Coutinho to Aston Villa on loan.

But Ferran Torres is coming from Manchester City, which means they still have some work to do to help balance the books.

The Spaniard’s registration is still pending, which is why Barca are freeing him salaries in their team.

And Gavi’s potential transfer exit along with Coutinho’s could trigger the space it takes for him to become active.

Gavi joined the Barcelona academy in 2015 at the age of 11.

He signed his first pro contract in September 2020 and continued to play for Barcelona B that year.

The talented teenager was promoted to the first team last summer and has already broken into the Spanish national team.

Liverpool are looking for reinforcements in an attempt to close the 11-point gap on Premier League leaders Man City.
