With the transfer window finally officially opening on Friday, transfers that earlier were just rumours are beginning to slide into reality as players can officially join their new clubs on July 1. Late last month, news emerged that Liverpool were willing to part with West Brom debutante Sergi Canos, and it seems that the young Spaniard might finally have found a suitor.
Though originally linked with a possible £4 million move to one of Queens Park Rangers, Watford, or Rangers, the Liverpool Echo reports that Championship side Bristol City are ready to make Canos their own for a slightly reduced fee of £2.5 million.
Canos' move is prompted by an inability to come to contract terms with Liverpool, with both parties being some distance away on wages and Liverpool not wanting to give Canos more than what other Academy graduates are currently making. It seems like a reasonable approach on paper, but with Liverpool having lost a few other young players over wage negotiations, some fans are worried that this foretells a disturbing trend.
At the end of the day, it's Jürgen Klopp and his merry band of coaches who know the player best and if they don't feel that Canos is worth the extra wages in this post-Brexit world, then that's a position worth considering.
