Reported Liverpool target Gabri Veiga’s move to Napoli could be set to collapse.

The 21-year-old had looked all set to join the Italian champions having been linked with a move to Anfield all summer long.

But according to journalist Fabrizio Romano on Twitter last night, the transfer is now in real ‘danger’ of being scuppered.

“More on Gabri Veiga situation. Tense exchanges between Napoli and Celta Vigo also tonight, issues remain — as deal now considered in danger,” Romano says.

“Conditions have been changed on the clubs side as revealed earlier tonight. Gabri Veiga, not travelling despite it was booked.”

Veiga deal in danger of collapse

Veiga has had a funny old summer. Having looked primed to move to the Premier League from Celta Vigo, nothing ever materialised.

At one stage, Liverpool had been seen as the most likely destination for the 21-year-old. But as Romano reported yesterday, the Reds decided to go for different kinds of midfielders instead.

Now, with time running out in the window and a feeling that they’re still a little short, maybe Liverpool will return once again for Veiga.

He isn’t the defensive midfielder fans are still craving, but he would certainly add a little something to the squad.

As previously claimed by Romano on Twitter, Napoli had agreed a fee of around £30.7m with Celta for Veiga. It now looks as though the La Liga side want a little more than that. But either way, it looks like decent business.

With the days ticking by to the end of the window, Liverpool likely won’t find value like that elsewhere.

Of course, there’s still a chance that Celta and Napoli resolve things between them. But if there’s a window of opportunity, perhaps the Reds should be peering into it.
