A recent report in the English media has provided an insight into Pedro Chirivella’s future at Liverpool.
Pedro Chirivella’s Liverpool stint
Chirivella has been on Liverpool’s books since all the way back in 2013.
The now 22-year-old joined the Reds’ youth set-up from Valencia for a fee believed to be just over £2m.
Despite spending nearly seven years on Merseyside, though, Chirivella has struggled to make too much of an impact at Liverpool.
In total, the former Spain under-17 international has made just 11 appearances across all competitions for Liverpool’s senior side.
Six of these showings have come in the 2019/20 campaign, and whilst the defensive-minded midfielder impressed in a number of those ties, including vs Everton and Shrewsbury, it doesn’t appear as though Chirivella will be establishing himself as a key figure in Liverpool’s formidable midfield anytime soon.
In fact, for those who don’t follow Liverpool too closely, they will perhaps only be familiar with Valencia-born Chirivella due to the fact that the Reds were fined for fielding the ineligible youngster vs MK Dons back in September.

Chirivella offered new deal
Despite all of this, though, if a recent report from Goal is to be believed, some at Liverpool still see Chirivella having a future at Anfield.
The Spaniard’s current contract is set to run out in the summer, but according to Goal, Liverpool have offered him a new five-year deal.
However, it’s crucially added that Chirivella is yet to make a decision on his future, with both Ligue 1 outfit Nantes and Rangers said to have shown an interest in the soon to be 23-year-old’s signature.
But whilst Chirivella could well extend his stay at Liverpool, it doesn’t sound as though a couple of the club’s other soon-to-be out-of-contract stars will be following in his footsteps.
In the same report, Goal add that, at the moment, there is no sign of either Adam Lallana or Nathaniel Clyne, both of whom are out of contract in the summer, signing new long-term deals.
This comes despite claims that Liverpool would like to keep the former on board.
