The Spaniard is looking for more first team football, and his wage demands meeting.

Sergi Canos is said to be edging closer to a move away from Liverpool FC, with the Reds having today accepted a bid from Norwich City for his services, said to be in the region of £2.5million.

The Spanish midfielder is supposedly spending this evening weighing up the move, with Bristol City having also tabled a similar offer, one that was also accepted. 

Contrasting fortunes for Canos

A move away for the youngster seemed unlikely months ago, as he impressed on loan at Brentford in the Championship, scoring a number of wonderful goals. 

He came back for the last Premier League game of the season, making his senior debut for the club against West Bromwich Albion, three years after arriving from the sunnier shores of Barcelona

However, things took a turn for the worse in the close season, with Canos' camp demanding a new contract with wages of £10,000 per week, reflecting what they felt was his impressive development in the past 12 months.

Liverpool's refusal to meet these demands, offering around half of that, added with a lack of guarantees about playing opportunities for the 19-year-old next season, it's clearly been decided by the Spaniard that a move elsewhere would be best for him as a player.

What happens next?

That aforementioned loan spell at Brentford attracted the interest of a number of second division sides, and it now looks like he's to pick between Bristol City and Norwich in order to find a new club. 

Should he fail to accept an offer from either of those clubs, Canos could well end up staying at Liverpool for the remainder of his contract, which has 12 months left to run on it.

If he were to do this, he'd be free to leave for nothing next summer, although the Reds would be entitled to a compensation sum due to his age.
