Rio Ferdinand Has Been Completely Blown Away By A Liverpool Target He Labelled ‘Exhilarating’ At Times During Euro 2020

There have been strong rumours that the Reds have already started proceedings to sign Barcelona midfielder Pedri. The 18-year-old was a major highlight for Spain during their run to their semi-finals before they lost to Italy in on penalties at Wembley.

Despite his tender age, Pedri showed his full range of passing and was outstanding in the loss to the Italians.

And Ferdinand was left shocked at just how good the Barcelona star is.

“Pedri has been exhilarating at times with his vision and passing,” said Ferdinand.

“The way he receives the ball all the time. His head is up. Receiving it on the half-turn, it comes so naturally to him.

“He seems to have that natural ability and awareness where people are. The running is good. But the little bits of skill here and there separates him.

“Tight areas ‘give it to me, I don’t care because I can get out and I can probably put it through your legs as well. Not a problem’. Great player to watch.”

In normal circumstances, Barcelona would be looking to build a new team around Pedri. However, they’ve been hit hard by the Covid-19 pandemic and need to offload some top talent.

Pedri is believed to be one of the names on the chopping block, with Liverpool desperate to sign him, according to a report in the Daily Express.

Jurgen Klopp is already said to have been in contact with the player’s agent about a summer switch to Anfield.

Pedri is currently valued at £70million, which could turn out to be a snip given his age and undoubted talent.
