Liverpool may employ a comparable transfer tactic to sign the $32 million “next Pedri,” a potential player who could give them an advantage over Barcelona.
The club’s attempt to usher in a new era may necessitate the acquisition of this young Spanish player.
This summer, Anfield is likely to experience substantial changes as a number of first-team players could depart while newcomers are brought in to reenergize Jürgen Klopp’s team. In order to spur this transition, Liverpool may think about going back to their former transfer plan and purchasing a Spanish wonderkid.
The lack of passion, mentality, and effort in some games during Liverpool’s recent season has highlighted the necessity for a restart. These ideals served as the foundation for Klopp’s first successful Liverpool team, but they have been missing this season, making regeneration a major priority.
Liverpool will mostly focus on adding players to the midfield and center defense, but they shouldn’t pass up the chance to invest in bolstering their present great players in other positions as well.
Although Liverpool has five excellent offensive alternatives, Mohamed Salah cannot be easily replaced on the right wing.
Due to Mohamed Salah’s importance to the team and his age in comparison to other attacking players in the lineup, Liverpool may think about bolstering their right-wing position. Alberto Moleiro, 19, has been lauded for his relentless efforts and ability to make selfless passes while playing on the right wing for Las Palmas, according to reports from the Spanish publication Mundo Deportivo.
Spanish powerhouses Barcelona and Real Madrid, as well as Premier League rivals Aston Villa and Manchester City, have expressed interest in Moleiro, who can play in numerous attacking positions.
He has not yet scored this year, but he has contributed eight assists in the Segunda Division, which has led to comparisons to up-and-coming Barcelona sensation Pedri, who also began his career there.
As Moleiro made his debut the previous season, Pepe Mel, his former boss, noted his special qualities and voiced high hopes for him. Moleiro has now made 64 additional appearances for Las Palmas, each of which has shown an improvement in his play. In an interview with TalkSport earlier this year, Tonono Rodrguez, the youth director for Las Palmas, lauded Moleiro’s amazing skill set for someone so young.
His verticality, periodic direction changes, and keen sense of the game, according to Rodriguez, belie his youth. The speed of a game may be changed by Moleiro, and he plays with confidence and courage when he is on the ball.
He added: “I can tell you that they [Pedri and Moleiro] are both beautiful persons and exceptional athletes. I can also explain the similarities between the ascent of the 19-year-old and that of the aforementioned Pedri. Both share a sense of sincerity and humility and have lived in the Casa Amarilla (Las Palmas’ Yellow Home for children).
Moleiro renewed his four-year deal with Las Palmas last summer, and it includes a $32 million (£26 million/€30 million) release clause. The release clause will increase by two times if Las Palmas wins promotion to La Liga this season. Liverpool might believe that this is the ideal time to make a bid for the youthful talent because the team is currently in second place in the Segunda Division.
With Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mané, and Gini Wijnaldum serving as notable examples, Liverpool has a successful history of shelling out mid-range sums to sign players right before they reach their peak.
The club’s transfer policy, which places a higher priority on developing talents at Anfield as opposed to purchasing them, has enabled it to compete with more affluent clubs like Manchester City. By pursuing Moleiro, Liverpool might build on this pattern and possibly land one of Europe’s most promising young players while outwitting its opponents.
