Financial issues have prompted several key players to be tipped to leave the Catalan giants over the summer, though Pedri does not appear likely to be one of those. With Jurgen Klopp set to leave the club, and Ruben Amorim likely to succeed him on Merseyside, tactical changes are somewhat inevitable ahead of next season. Liverpool rebuilt their midfield last summer, allowing the likes of Fabinho, Jordan Henderson and James Milner to leave and replacing the trio with Dominik Szoboszlai, Alexis Mac Allister, Wataru Endo and Ryan Gravenberch.

The Spain international reportedly has a £70million release clause in his current contract which is a cause for concern among the higher powers given that the fee would be a snip of his true market value.

The 21-year-old remains one of the best prospects in Europe regardless of his woes and he will be hoping that his injury concerns fizzle out over the summer, with Fabrizio Romano reporting that a new contract is now in the works and discussions will be held over the next few months. Liverpool could be tempted to try their luck by activating the supposed release clause before Barcelona reaches an agreement with Pedri over a new deal, though Amorim may have other priorities upon his arrival at the club over the summer.
