Sergi Canos's days at Liverpool appear to be numbered with the midfielder on his way out of the club. The Liverpool Echo reports that the club have accepted an offer of around £2.5 million for the promising 19-year-old winger from Norwich City, with Bristol City also tabling a bid.

Canos spent last season on loan at Brentford and seemed to impress during his time at the Championship side, and he was handed his first senior appearance in a Liverpool shirt as a substitute on the last day of the Premier League season in a 1-1 draw with West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns.

The Echo's report suggests that Canos wanted wages of £10,000 per week and Liverpool were not prepared to pay the teenager that much money, so his future now lies elsewhere.

Canos was about to enter the final year of his existing contract, so the Reds appear to have taken the opportunity to cash in on the player. 

Former Liverpool defender Rob Jones, who is also part of the club's academy staff appeared to confirm on Twitter last night that Canos would not be at Anfield for the start of the season:

It certainly seems that the former Liverpool defender would have liked to have seen Canos stick around at the club but the expectations of the club and the player when it came to agreeing terms seemed too far apart.
