Liverpool are always on the lookout for a bargain. The Reds are also keen on signing young talents who will see their value increase over the years. Therefore, Liverpool should look to Xavi Simons amid reports that PSG are set to host a fire sale.
Who is Xavi Simons?
18-year-old centre midfielder Xavi Simons came through the youth ranks at Barcelona.
He was considered one of Barca’s finest prospects and attracted interest from a number of clubs including Chelsea and Real Madrid.
However, in 2019, it was PSG who secured his signature.
He made his professional debut as a 17-year-old earlier this year, coming on for Julian Draxler in a cup tie.
PSG fire sale
According to reports in Spain we could see a fire sale at PSG in the near future.
Sport has claimed that Lionel Messi signing for PSG could force the Parisians into selling a number of players to balance the books.
Ander Herrera and Mauro Icardi are named as players who could face the chop.
However, there is no telling just who the club will listen to offers for given the finances involved in signing Messi.
Liverpool should move for Xavi Simons
This is a bit of a pipedream, sure. But let’s dream for a moment.
If PSG are open to selling a number of players then Liverpool should try a move for Xavi Simons.
The wonderkid is destined for great things in the game and fits the FSG profile.
Furthermore, he has just a year left on his current deal in the French capital.
As a result Michael Edwards has two ways to squeeze PSG, they won’t want to lose him on a free and they need cash.
The Reds pride themselves on flexibility in the transfer market, considering themselves opportunists. This is a fantastic opportunity.
