Liverpool are always on the lookout for a bargain buy. This summer the market could be flooded with opportunities due to the financial worries of plenty of clubs around Europe. Liverpool signing Ilaix Moriba from Barcelona is a no-brainer with his asking price allegedly set at around £17m.
Who is Ilaix Moriba?
18-years-old and a product of the La Masia academy in Barcelona, Ilaix Moriba is one of the hottest prospects in Spain.
The teenager rose through the youth ranks impressively and even scored a hat-trick against Real Madrid U19s when he was just 15-years-old.
Last term he managed 14 appearances in La Liga and he bagged three assists along the way.
A creative centre midfielder with an eye for a pass and silky dribbling ability, you can tell he was trained at La Masia.
Ilaix Moriba fee
This summer could see a raft of departures from Barcelona.
The club is over £1bn in debt due to their reckless dealings in recent seasons.
As a result there’s a fire sale underway to help balance the books.
According to an ESPN reporter, Barcelona will accept a fee of around £17m for Moriba.
Liverpool should sign Ilaix Moriba
This should be a no-brainer for the Reds.
90Min has claimed Liverpool have made initial contract with the agents Ilaix Moriba.
At just 18-years-old he has his whole career ahead of him, paying just £17m is an absolute bargain for a player of his potential.
Furthermore, he offers a creative flair we’ve been lacking since the departure of Philippe Coutinho.
Even if he’s a flop we would likely make a profit on him given his CV and how cheap Barca are willing to let him go for.
