Liverpool ‘leading’ race for £68m European star likened to ‘Andres Iniesta’.


Liverpool is reportedly at the forefront of the race to secure the services of Barcelona sensation Pedri, who may be on the market this upcoming summer transfer window.

Despite encountering setbacks due to injuries over the past few years, the 21-year-old midfielder has shown signs of resurgence under the guidance of Xavi this season, following a string of injury setbacks. Previously lauded with prestigious accolades such as the Golden Boy award in 2021 and inclusion in the European Championships Team of the Tournament in 2020, where he also clinched the Best Young Player award, Pedri’s talent is undeniable.

Although hampered by a hamstring injury that sidelined him for 19 games this season, Pedri boasts an impressive record of 138 appearances for Barcelona and 18 caps for the Spanish national team at just 21 years old, solidifying his status as one of Europe’s most seasoned and promising young talents. Reports from Marca, cited by TEAMtalk, indicate Barcelona’s intention to offload the midfielder amid financial constraints, with Liverpool emerging as the frontrunners in the pursuit of the Spanish prodigy. Despite a reported price tag of £51.3 million, below his market value of £68 million, Pedri represents an enticing prospect for potential suitors, especially for Liverpool as they face departures in their midfield department, including Thiago’s imminent exit and uncertainties surrounding Wataru Endo.

As Barcelona grapples with on-field struggles and the ramifications of excessive spending on player acquisitions, Pedri has navigated his way through periods of inconsistency, balancing his injury woes with intermittent spells in the starting lineup. Nonetheless, he played a pivotal role in Barcelona’s La Liga triumph last season, showcasing remarkable statistical outputs across various performance metrics. With impressive rankings among midfielders in Europe’s top five leagues for key performance indicators such as assists, expected assists, shot-creating actions, progressive passes, progressive carries, blocks, and passes attempted per 90 minutes, Pedri’s potential for greatness remains palpable.

Xavi, Barcelona’s esteemed former player and current manager, drew parallels between Pedri and the legendary Andres Iniesta, underscoring the young midfielder’s exceptional talent and potential impact on the pitch. While acknowledging Iniesta’s enduring legacy, Xavi likened Pedri’s skill set to that of the Spanish icon, emphasizing his significant contribution to the team. For Liverpool, securing Pedri’s signature would represent a significant coup, potentially adding a player of immense talent and pedigree to their ranks.
