Liverpool, looking to replace their midfield of Jordan Henderson, Thiago Alcantara, and Fabinho, are on the hunt for at least three young midfielders this summer, securing 24-year-old midfielder Alexis Mc Allister and eyeing his next additions with a keen eye.
Along with Khéphren Thuram, Manu Koné, and Ryan Gravenberch, another reported priority target is 21-year-old midfielder Gabri Veiga, who made his big breakthrough last season with Celta de Vigo and has been selected for the Spanish U-21 team.
In addition to Liverpool, Chelsea is also interested in the player, and both teams have confirmed the release fee and other conditions and are considering whether to make an offer within their teams.
According to Fabrizio Romano, Manchester City, who backed out of the battle for England midfielder Declan Rice, has also come forward and is keeping a close eye on his developments as one of the options.

No club has yet presented an offer, and since the player is also participating in the U-21 European Championship 2023, it is expected that talks on a transfer will move forward after the tournament is over.
Will the midfielder, who can also score goals and is coveted by all teams, be playing in the Premier League next season?
