An update on Barcelona’s efforts to tie promising young star Gavi down to a new deal amid links to Chelsea has emerged recently.

Gavi impressing

There are not a lot of positives at Barcelona at present. The Catalonian outfit are languishing down in 9th place in La Liga and are in danger of not making it out of the Champions League knockout rounds.

One of the few positives for La Blaugrana at the moment is the fresh crop of La Masia graduates being integrated into the senior side.

Ansu Fati and Euro 2020 star, Pedri, are likely more well know the casual viewers of Barcelona.

Now though, a new 17-year-old talent has emerged and is already a regular feature for the Spanish outfit.

That man is Gavi, who was only handed his senior Barca debut at the start of this season, but has already notched 14 appearances for his club.

Gavi is a central midfielder by trade and with Barca legend Xavi Hernandez now at the helm, the teenager is no doubt set to learn a lot more in the coming months.

So impressive has Gavi been this term, that he was also handed his senior Spain debut in October and has now featured on four occasions for them.
