Valencia are studying the possibility of signing former youth player Pedro Chirivella after meeting with the player’s agents.
Following another disappointing season at the Mestalla, it is clear that Valencia have been seeking to add both experience and depth to their defensive midfield position – a position which was never properly covered since the retirement of club legend and former captain David Albelda.
Players such as Ignacio Camacho, Milan Badelj and Mario Lemina have all been linked to the club over the past few weeks.
However, the shortage of cash at the club and the need to recruit more than one player for the midfield positions has lead the club to study the option of loan moves for Marcos Llorente and Mikel Merino, as reported.
Another name which has been added to the table is former academy player Pedro Chirivella.
According to Valencian newspapers, Super Deporte and Plaza Deportiva, Valencia have discussed the possibility of signing the 20-year-old midfielder with the player’s agents “The Toldrá Brothers” during a meeting which was held in the club’s training ground.
Chirivella left Valencia in 2013 at just 16 to join Liverpool despite being considered as the jewel of Valencia’s academy at the time.
A lack of opportunities at the Merseyside club has lead him to being loaned out to Dutch side Go Ahead Eagles during the second half of last season where he had left a positive impression scoring two goals and assisting another two, and despite having a contract which keeps him in Liverpool until 2020, a return home sounds like an attractive option for the young midfielder.
