Barcelona rumor round-up: Liverpool want Pedri, Neymar latest, Barça closer to Sergio Agüero

We begin with one of the favorite pastimes of the English media: link Barcelona and Real Madrid players to Premier League teams. This time it’s The Mirror who say that Barça midfielder Pedri is a target for Liverpool, who are having a bad season and are looking for reinforcements to the squad.

Despite having just signed Thiago Alcântara, the paper claims Jürgen Klopp is very interested in signing the 18-year-old Pedri, who could be a replacement for Georginio Wijnaldum if the Dutchman joins Barça on a free. But there’s not much truth to this one: Joan Laporta is in love with Pedri and will keep him at the club even if he needs a new, improved contract this summer after just one season.
