The Catalan giants are still in financial trouble despite securing the January signings of Ferran Torres and Dani Alves, with the former yet to be registered.

Philippe Coutinho has joined Aston Villa on loan but Barcelona still need to lower their wage bill in order to get Torres on their books officially.

Jurgen Klopp is said to be a fan of the 17-year-old and Liverpool are ready to give him a massive increase on his weekly wage.

Gavi wants to stay at the Camp Nou, but his contract renewal is currently on the back-burner as they attempt to sort out other issues.

The teenager has made 16 appearances in La Liga this season, scoring once and debuted for the Spain national team late last year.

Xavi is a big fan of Gavi and believes he's the future of the club along with fellow Spaniards Ansu Fati and Pedri plus defender Ronald Araujo.

"We must act now to renew him," he told Marca last year.

"If necessary, we will find a way to put money together. He and Ansu, Pedri, Araujo are important for us. He is one of the future players of the club and we are working on his renewal."

Barcelona have been forced into using their academy products this campaign after a number of injuries across the team.

Along with Gavi, Nico Gonzalez, Alejandro Balde and Abde Ezzalzouli have made an impression in the first team.

President Joan Laporta recently claimed Barcelona are now 'back' after a period of unrest.

He explained at Torres' official unveiling on Monday: "Everybody should get ready, as we are back as big players in the market."

Liverpool are keen to strengthen their midfield after losing Gini Wijnaldum to Paris Saint-Germain in the summer.
