Liverpool preparing to pounce for Barcelona wonderkid

Liverpool are rumoured to be in the hunt to sign of one of Barcelona's hottest prospects.

The Catalan club are hoping that 16 year old Sergi Canos will sign a long term deal, but according to the Spanish press the reds have already weighed in with an offer for the youngster.

The Spanish striker is one of the stars of Barcelona's prodigious La Masia academy and has so far been reluctant to discuss a contract extension with his current club.  His agent is already rumoured to have been in discussions with Liverpool.

Obviously this could be an attempt at extracting a better long-term deal with Barcelona, but there have been several indications recently that Liverpool have been refocussing their scouting system towards the youth setups of bigger clubs in preference to first team players in weaker leagues.

  1. Haha. Wonderkid? According to who? He’s not a wonderkid at all. A good very talented player sure, but he’s not a new Messi or Iniesta.

  2. If Sterling is being coddled to keep him healthy, longer, for the team
    so he doesn’t wind up like Michael Owen, then why would we sign a 16 yr old?
    Even Coutinho is having problems due to the physical nature of of the
    EPL
