Liverpool consider contract offer for Javi Cendon
According to the Liverpool Echo, Premier League champions Liverpool are considering handing a contract to 19-year-old goalkeeper Javi Cendon, after inviting him to the pre-season training camp in Austria.
The Spanish shot-stopper started out at the academy of Villarreal and spent a year on loan at Roda during the 2017/18 season. Having been with Villarreal’s U19 setup this past year and was part of the team which beat Atletico Madrid 3-0 to win the Spanish Youth Cup.
Cendon left the club at the end of the season and has been unattached since. The 19-year-old had been called to work with Liverpool’s goalkeeping coach John Achterberg and assistant goalkeeping coach Jack Robinson.
He has been training with Reds’ goalkeeping contingent of Alisson Becker, Adrian, Caiomhin Kelleher and Loris Karius, who is back after a frustrating loan spell in Turkey.
As per the Echo, Cendon has made a huge impression during the pre-season camp and will be returning to Melwood to train with our team. And having been impressed by the teenage custodian, Liverpool are now mulling over the possibility of offering him a contract with the club.
The report further goes on to add that no decision has been made as of yet. Klopp and his team will continue assessing Cendon before deciding on his future.

With Alisson and Adrian, the goalkeeping department for the first-team is pretty much locked in. And Kelleher was the third-choice for us over the past season. Karius’ return is unlikely to change that, with the club open to selling him should an offer come along.
So, adding another promising young talent like Cendon would be a smart move.
