Liverpool ready to offer Barcelonas Gavi fifty times his current salary

Liverpool are reportedly preparing a huge offer to tempt Barcelona wonderkid Gavi into a move to Anfield, were they to meet his surprisingly low release clause.

The Nou Camp teenager has featured regularly this season under Ronald Koeman and Xavi, with Barca forced to look to youth due to their financial struggles.

And Gavi appears to have caught the eye of Jurgen Klopp, despite Barcelona's disappointing results this term.

The 17-year-old is believed to currently earn just £1,600-a-week at debt-ridden Barca.

But Klopp would be prepared to offer him a massive wage rise to £80,000 a week, according to El Nacional.

Due to his contract not reflecting his value, Gavi also has a relatively low release clause of £41.7 million (€50m).

Were Liverpool to stump up that cash, Barcelona may struggle to turn it down, especially given their troubles to register Ferran Torres.

The Manchester City forward joined the Blaugrana in an eyebrow-raising €55m switch at the end of December.

But the club's financial troubles have meant they can not register Torres until they lower their current wage bill.

Of course, Gavi is not on a large wage, but his sale would free up a chunk of funds spent on the Torres transfer.

In Liverpool's case, Klopp opted not to replace Gini Wijnaldum after he opted not to extend his contract in favour of a move to Paris Saint-Germain.

That has allowed the youngsters such as Harvey Elliot and Tyler Morton more game time, though the former's leg-break has halted his progress.

There is speculation over where Alex Oxlade-Chamblerain will be next season as he continues to settle for a place on the bench most frequently.

James Milner recently turned 36, and though he has shown no signs of slowing down, is unlikely to be part of the club's long-term plans.
