Liverpool are expected to invest over the summer. The Reds have struggled this season and the team is looking stagnant up top. A star forward is going to arrive and we need to pick the right one. Liverpool should swoop for Ansu Fati with Barcelona reportedly prepared to let him go for way less than his £344m release clause.
Who is Ansu Fati?
They seem to be getting younger every year these wonderkids.
18-year-old Ansu Fati has broken records left and right in the past few years.
The teenager made his senior Barcelona debut at just 16-years-old.
In September 2019, in his first league start for the senior side, he became the youngest player to score and assist in a La Liga game, at the tender age of 16 years and 304 days.
The wonderkid has since been in and out of the team due to injuries and competition for places but he is still regarded as one of the brightest young talents in the world.
Ansu Fati for sale
The financial struggles at Barcelona are no secret.
The club are in real trouble at the moment and they’ll have to raise the funds from somewhere.
According to Guillem Balague, everybody is for sale with up to 15-17 players available to leave.
The journalist added that some will want to leave for free as Barcelona are just desperate to get their wages off the books.
Liverpool should sign Ansu Fati
This could be one of those now-or-never moments.
If Liverpool can sign Ansu Fati then they should.
The youngster allegedly has a release clause of £344m, though Balague’s report hints strongly that he’ll be available for a much for affordable fee.
The 18-year-old is destined for greatness, Liverpool signing the forward now could see him fulfil his potential at Anfield.
Otherwise he could be snapped up by another European giant and he’ll be unaffordable for the remainder of his career. Now or never.
