Liverpool is reportedly interested in moving for Ez Abde during the current transfer window, according to a report by the Spanish outlet SPORT. If the 31-year-old Mohamed Salah goes, the Merseyside club may go after the 21-year-old Barcelona forward. Ansu Fati piqued the eye of the Reds as well. However, the 20-year-old is about to sign with Brighton & Hove Albion.
Since switching to Barcelona from Hercules CF in August 2021, Ez Abde has had to wait his turn.
The international from Morocco played in a few games during his first year with the Blaugrana. However, he was on loan at Osasuna for the 2022–23 season, when he rapidly rose in size.
The 21-year-old is apparently a part of Xavi Hernandez’s plans for the upcoming campaign now that he is back at FC Barcelona.
However, Abde has only played 67 minutes of total playing time this season. The youngster’s circumstance has also drawn the attention of several illustrious clubs, who have taken notice.
The youthful winger has reportedly been linked to Sevilla, Aston Villa, and Bayer Leverkusen in recent publications. He has also been offered by intermediaries to a few clubs. However, Liverpool might be Abde’s next stop after the Merseyside club contacted Barcelona to inquire about a potential trade.
Concerns over Mohamed Salah’s future have the Reds in a pickle. Exit links aren’t going anywhere, despite the Reds’ insistence that they won’t trade their talismanic attacker.
Al-Ittihad will also be willing to spend a fortune to expedite the Egyptian’s arrival in Saudi Arabia. Therefore, Liverpool needs to decide who might take Salah’s place before the summer transfer window closes.
Thus, a number of prospects have come onto their radar, with Ez Abde being the most recent choice. Additionally, the Reds have spoken with Barcelona about a potential trade for the 21-year-old prodigy.
Ansu Fati sparked interest from Liverpool as well. However, the Spanish international is about to sign a loan agreement to spend the remainder of the campaign with Brighton & Hove Albion.
Liverpool will be hoping Salah stays put at this point in the summer transfer season. But if the unthinkable occurs, Ez Abde might end up being their top choice to take the position of the 31-year-old.
