The Reds first signed Pedro Chirivella in the summer of 2013, with the Spaniard joining the academy from Valencia.

He has since progressed through the youth ranks at the club without ever threatening to burst onto the scene in the first team.

Despite his previous failed attempts, this season has undoubtedly been the strongest of his Merseyside career so far.

The midfielder has been given a starting berth in cup fixtures and has never failed to impress, he dominated the middle of the park against Everton and put in strong showings against Everton and MK Dons.

With his contract set to expire in the summer, fans were debating whether or not Pedro Chirivella would be given an extension at Liverpool as a reward for his fine form in the cups and the potential he showed.

A report from La Razon in Spain has dampened these hopes, claiming that Pedro wants to leave the club in the summer in order to establish himself elsewhere.

What RTK has to say

This would be a shame to see but is understandable.

Pedro Chirivella has the potential to be a top player if afforded game time. His cup performances showed that he has the vision and technique to be a starting midfielder somewhere, perhaps the Premier League is just too physical for him.

Wherever he ends up we will be wishing him the best and following his development, it’s a pity it didn’t work out for him here.
