According to Goal, Liverpool midfielder Pedro Chirivella wants to sign for Celtic this summer.

Celtic are still free to sign Chirivella, as their transfer window hasn’t closed, and Brendan Rodgers’ side are reportedly leading the race to sign the midfielder.

 

Chirivella linked up with Rodgers during their time together at Liverpool, and was a big fan of the Celtic boss.

And the potential to reunite with Rodgers at Parkhead is one which is said to excite the Spaniard.

Celtic have struggled to bring in players so far this summer, but Rodgers has made no secret of his desire to make additions.

Chirivella could help to enhance the quality of Celtic midfield, and add creativity to their attacking player.

The youngster has struggled for opportunities at Liverpool, but a move to Scotland could help him gain regular first-team action.
