Sergi Canos has asked to leave Liverpool, as the youngster seeks regular first-team football, and has expressed a London club as his ideal destination.
Canos, 19, made his first-team debut in the Reds 1-1 draw at West Brom on 15 May, stating that is was a ‘dream come true’.
However, just days after failing to agree a new contract, in which his representatives demanded up to £10,000 week, Canos has asked to leave the club.
The winger became a fans favourite during his season-long spell at Championship side Brentford, scoring seven goals and making five assists in his 39 games at Griffin Park.
Dean Smith’s have already stated their interest in signing Canos on a permanent basis, alongisde Fulham, Reading and SPL side Rangers, who submitted a £1m bid.
The Spanish youth international has one year left on his current contract at Liverpool, and the club have offered him a new contract of £3,000 per week, but his representatives want as much as triple that value.
Canos joined the club from Barcelona in the summer 2013, progressing through the U18s and to the U21s, where he has featured 25 times, scoring three goals and making seven assists.
Brentford face competition from London rivals QPR and Watford, with the latter already signing Liverpool U21 striker Jerome Sinclair this week.
Despite his family moving to Liverpool and opening a restaurant in the North West, it seems Canos has expressed genuine interest in moving to the capital.
However, according to the Press Association, Liverpool have put a £4m price-tag on the winger, which may contain a buy-back clause for future use.
