Liverpool prepared to award Chirivella a contract extension, claim reports
So it's an interesting claim from Sky Sports today, who are saying that Liverpool will be prepared to offer 22 year old Spanish midfielder Pedro Chirivella a contract extension.
The defensive midfielder has played 4 times for the senior side this season, but his biggest part (and best performance) was definitely against Everton on Sunday, in which he pretty much ran the midfield against much more illustrious opposition for 90 minutes.
The young midfielder has generally been quite good whenever he's played over the years, but it appeared that he would be surplus to requirements after the last round of the League Cup.
However, if Sky Sports are to be believed, Jurgen Klopp may be about to reward the player with a contract extension, allowing him a little bit more time to establish himself. Or, at least, a comfortable base from which to find a new club.
