Liverpool midfielder Pedro Chirivella is close to leaving the Merseyside giants on loan for the rest of the season.

Liverpool Echo are reporting that the Spanish central midfielder will join Eredivisie outfit Go Ahead Eagles in order to gain some first team experience and continue his development as a footballer.

Go Ahead Eagles are currently struggling for survival and the Dutch side will be hoping that the Liverpool midfielder can guide them to safety at the end of this season.

The 19-year-old central midfielder joined Liverpool from Valencia in 2013 and was regarded as one of the finest talents to come out of the La Liga club’s academy in recent years.

Chirivella was injured at the start of this season, but the former Valencia midfielder has impressed with the U23s recently. Echo are reporting that Klopp is a big fan of the midfielder and wants him to go out and get some regular first team action.

It is clear that he won’t be able to break into the Liverpool first team now and therefore the loan move makes perfect sense for all parties involved.

Klopp has been very welcoming to the young players at Liverpool so far and Chirivella will be hoping for his big break when he returns from loan at the end of this season. The likes of Ejaria, Stewart, Alexander-Arnold and Woodburn have had their chances this season and all of them have managed to impress Klopp with their first team contributions.

Chirivella made his Liverpool debut against Bordeaux in the Europa League in 2015 and then went on to make his first Premier League start at Swansea City in 2016.
