Liverpool will allow Pedro Chirivella to leave the club in January barring an injury crisis in midfield, according to reports.
The 22-year-old has been at the club since 2013 after joining the Under-18s setup, but he has only managed seven senior appearances in that time.
The Spaniard recently expressed his desire to return to his homeland and, according to Football Insider, Liverpool are willing to grant him that wish unless boss Jurgen Klopp is hit with a serious injury crisis.
The source says that Liverpool are aware that with Chriviella’s contract expiring at the end of the season, the January transfer window is the last chance for the club to receive a fee for his departure.
What’s more, following Chirivella’s admission that game time with the first team looks like a rarity, Liverpool realise that fact too and there is a mutual feeling that an exit from Anfield in the new year would be the best option for both parties.
Chirivella’s latest two appearances for the first team have come in the EFL Cup against MK Dons and Arsenal, the midfielder playing once in both the Premier League and the Europa League and three times in the FA Cup before that.
Chirivella could feature again against Aston Villa in the quarter-finals of the EFL Cup next month.
