Liverpool midfielder Pedro Chirivella looks set to sign for FC Nantes on a three-year-contract in what would be a fantastic coup for Les Canaris.
Chirivella, who spent nearly a decade in hometown Valencia’s youth set-up winning 15 Spain under-17 caps for good measure, would add significant quality to an at best mediocre Nantes team.
Chirivella has had to content himself with a couple of loans to the Netherlands during his time in (Or out of) Liverpool. Despite impressing in some cup showings last season he has the likes of Curtis Jones and Harvey Elliott to compete with let alone current first team players.
As a Nantes fan who’s a little underwhelmed by the standard of the current squad, the addition of a midfield string-puller such as Chirivella would be most welcome. He’ll be 23 shortly so needs to make a break. Fingers crossed that Ligue 1 is all go later this year and Chirivella is at the Stade de la Beaujoire wearing canary yellow.
