Liverpool youngster Canos aiming for big season with Brentford

Brentford Griffin Park

The former Barcelona starlet believes he is at the ideal club for his continued development.

Speaking to Brentford’s official website, on-loan Liverpool youngster Sergi Canos says he is targeting a big season with the Bees in the Championship.

The 18-year-old headed to Griffin Park on loan during the summer transfer window, and will stay with the club until January 2016.

England’s second division will prove to be a big step up for the former Barcelona starlet, who has so far only experienced youth team football with the Catalans and Brendan Rodgers side.

He is eager to get started and boost his development, saying he believes Brentford is an ideal club for him to move to.

"I think it’s an ideal club to play for so I’m really happy,” he told brentfordfc.cp.uk.

“I’m really looking forward to start, play and learn. All the team, and my teammates are really nice and they have welcomed me really well. I’m feeling very good. I’m really happy to be here.”

Happy to play on the wing or up front

The young forward will be targeting a place up front for the Bees this season, as he aims to help improve their goal tally.

His career so far has seem him develop into more of a right-winger than a forward though, having appeared in that position for both Barcelona and Liverpool previously.

With Brentford losing star forward Andre Gray in the summer, there may be chances up front at Griffin Park, and Canos says he is comfortable in either role.

“I think I’m more of a winger than a striker,” he added.

“But I don’t mind playing striker or on the wing. I think I’m faster but can also be strong against the centre-backs.”
