Liverpool, Man City threaten Barcelona plans for Las Palmas midfielder Alberto Moleiro

Liverpool have joined the battle for Las Palmas midfielder Alberto Moleiro.

Moleiro was expected to sign for Barcelona last season, but nothing could be agreed.

Mundo Deportivo says Liverpool are monitoring the 19-year-old’s development in Spain, but look set to battle Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester City and Borussia Dortmund for a player dubbed ‘the new Pedri’.

Moleiro’s current release clause is a reported €30million, although if Las Palmas win promotion to La Liga – they are second after 15 games – that is expected to double.

The teenager has three assists in his 14 league appearances and has played for Spain’s under-18s and under-21s.
