Liverpool are reportedly winning the race to sign highly-rated Deportivo la Coruna forward Pinchi.

According to ​The Sun, it is understood that the Reds are competing with rivals Manchester United and ​Tottenham for the Spaniard’s signature.

The 22-year-old’s contract runs out at the end of the current season, but because of his age, Pinchi’s current club Deportivo will receive some - albeit little - compensation.

Pinchi has been playing for Deportivo’s second time and has been catching the eye of top ​Premier League sides with his blistering pace.

​Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is looking to bolster his front line after losing Philippe Coutinho to ​Barcelona and Pinchi looks like a seemingly low-risk and potentially high-reward investment.


The youngster would add to a front line that has been collectively on fire this season, but Roberto Firmino, Mohammed Salah and Sadio Mane have barely had a rest this season with the extra fixtures in the Champions League.

​Manchester United have also taken note of Pinchi, believing that he would have the ability to compete for a place in Jose Mourinho’s squad in the future.

Spurs, on the other hand, see him as a cheaper alternative to Bordeaux winger Malcom, who was heavily linked to the North London club before Mauricio Pochettino secured the signature of Lucas Moura in January.
