TEENAGER Sergi Canos could be on his way out of Liverpool – after making just one appearance for the first team.
The Liverpool Echo claim the Spaniard and his representatives are struggling to reach agreement over a new contract, with wages the main sticking point. His current deal runs out at the end of next season.
Canos spent most of the recently-completed season on loan at Championship side Brentford, before making his Liverpool debut in the 1-1 draw at West Brom on the final day of the campaign.
Clearly the 19-year-old – who joined the Reds’ Academy from Barcelona in 2013 – was initially keen to stay at Anfield as his reaction after making his breakthrough appearance for Liverpool showed.
Speaking after the draw at The Hawthorns, Canos said: “It was the best 10 minutes of my life.
“When people say dreams come true, they are right. Today one of my dreams came true.
“I’ve had hunger from the first day I came to Liverpool three years ago. I hope I’ll be able to train with the senior squad more in future and show the manager that I can play for Liverpool.
“I’ll be back for pre-season and ready to go 200 per cent.”
However, based on the Echo’s report, Canos’ future at Liverpool is uncertain at best, with another source, Empire of the Kop, suggesting the player has told club officials he wants to leave and sign for a club in London who can offer him first-team football.
A number of clubs – including Premier League Watford and QPR of the Championship – have already expressed an interest in the talented youngster who is valued at £4million by the Merseyside outfit.
