Liverpool midfielder set to reject new long-term deal with Anfield


Liverpool are preparing for Pedro Chirivella to leave the club this summer – despite the possibility given to the midfielder to extend his stay at Anfield.

Chirivella, who is out of contract at the end of the season, has been offered a new five-year contract by the Reds.

The Spaniard has yet to make a decision on his future with a number of clubs that plan to move if he becomes a free agent.

And the player’s desire to play regularly in the first team will likely see him reject the new deal and pursue a career away from the champions of Europe and the world.

Chirivella, 23 next week, has been in Liverpool for almost seven years after being taken to Valencia for £ 2 million in July 2013.

Although he debuted at 18 in September 2015, he spent three years without a senior game for the Reds – taking loan spells from Go Ahead Eagles, Willem II and Extremadura in the meantime – before emerging as a substitute in the League Cup wins over MK Dons and Arsenal this season.

He then captained the team in the quarterfinal loss to competition at Aston Villa, and impressed in the FA Cup third-round victory over Everton while starting both games against Shrewsbury Town at fourth round.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has been impressed with Chirivella’s improvement and wants the player to stay on the team, especially given the uncertain financial landscape in the transfer market following the coronavirus epidemic.
