    Default Pedro Chirivella

    22 yo, Spanish Centre Mid from Liverpool.

    Set to go out on loan for the rest of the season and has a concrete offer from ourselves according to Liverpool correspondent for Goal Neil Jones. Had a stand out performance against Everton in the cup last night.

    I think he was also linked a while back, possibly when Karanka was manager?

    Should've signed him last season imo. Desperately need a ball playing CM.

    Outside of the risky crossfield ball with bearly enough on it, looks decent enough.

    Plenty of snap in the pass & tackle. Nice to see he's intent on moving the team forward

    Defensive midfielder playing with his head up, looking for a forward pass: my kind of player.

    Cites his idol as Xabi Alonso, if he gets near that level he'll be one hell of a player obviously.

    For now though you can see he'll be good cover/ competition for Watson in the 'brain/Regista' role.

    Can't be any worse backup for Watson than Bostock

    Every source takes it for granted that this would be a loan, but Chirivella hasn't agreed to an extension of his contract (which ends in the summber) yet.

    His range of passing from deep could be essentially to our style if we can add some pace to our front line. Could be the player who turns defence into attack on the break.

    I think the key to this one is that he can probably cover Watson and Sow and provide more than enough competition to both.
    Bostock and Semedo can't.

    The Modesto link with Chirivella must be Willem II, the Dutch team where the Spaniard was sent on loan in the 2017-2018 season (he totalled 35 appearances and 2.995 minutes there, not bad for a 20-year-old). We have an excellent relationship with Willem II and often lend them players; they did wonders for the progress of Kostas Tsimikas, our current left back, and Marios Vrousai, a promising winger, now targeted by Ajax.

    Chirivella was exceptionally unlucky last season: he was sent on loan to Extremadura in Spain, but the paperwork did not arrive in time, and this meant he lost six months there without being eligible to play.

    Seeing the clips against premier opposition- Everton, he shows sum quality passing - I’m hoping he starts.

    He’s been stuck in Liverpool for a while, I’d imagine a move to Chernobyl would be acceptable.

    On a visit to the Isle of Wight some years back we were visiting Alum Bay and preparing to go down on the Needles Chairlift. We were approached to each take a young child down with us. It turned out they were orphans from Chernobyl. The little girl I took down was such a sweetie and just wouldn't let go of my hand when we got to the bottom.

    I, for one, think we’ve signed far too many Iberian players without having someone named Pedro. I look forward to this being corrected.

    I personally would like more scandi players - Danes, Swedes and Norwegians always take well to English football.
