Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has stepped up his pursuit of Barcelona starlet Gavi by reportedly offering the teenager a contract worth £5million a year. The German is looking to bolster his squad this summer and has turned his attentions to the youngster.

Gavi is enjoying a fine maiden season in the Barcelona first team and has quickly established himself as a key part of the side. The midfielder only turned 17 days before the new campaign began but was thrust into the team as a substitute against Getafe before the end of August. And he has gone on to make 33 appearances for the Spanish giants throughout the campaign.

Most of those outings have come in centre midfield, but the player has also occupied roles on both wings. And his versatility will clearly be propitious for any club who are able to prise him away from Catalonia.

Gavi will have just one more year remaining on his Barca contract when the current season comes to an end. The teenage sensation has been linked with a whole host of European powerhouses, who are desperate to get their hands on him. And, according to transfer reporter Gerard Romero, Liverpool have already made a proposal to the player worth £5m a year.

Barcelona are desperate to keep the youngster in Spain and have already entered into negotiations with him over a new deal. And they are confident that he will opt to stay in Spain rather than turn his back on a club he has been with since 2015.

But Gavi has a release clause of £42m if he departs Barca before the end of June – and that figure will be music to the ears of the top clubs across Europe. Manchester United and Chelsea are also reportedly interested in Gavi, as are Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich. So Barcelona could face a huge battle to hold onto him.
