Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has contacted Spain star Pedri’s agent ahead of a potential summer transfer and Rio Ferdinand has been blown away by the Barcelona ace.
BBC pundit Ferdinand’s jaw has been left on the floor after the performances of Pedri at Euro 2020.
It comes amid news that Liverpool have already started proceedings to sign the Barcelona star, who has blown away everyone this summer.
The 18-year-old has been given a starring role by Luis Enrique for Spain and has shone over the tournament.
Despite his young age, Pedri has looked sublime and has made passes that a rare few on the planet could even envisage – let alone pull off.
Spain were knocked out by Italy on penalties in the semi-final but the teenager did not deserve to be on the losing side.
And Ferdinand was utterly impressed by the midfielder, who has been linked with a move to Liverpool.
“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.”
Barcelona are in trouble financially and a number of clubs have started to circle them hoping to land some players cheaply.
The Nou Camp outfit have been told they must offload some stars in order to balance the books.
And Pedri could be one departure with Liverpool desperate to sign the teenager.
Klopp has even already contacted his agent, who is valued at £70m, as reported at the Mirror back in April.
