Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) have entered the race to sign Barcelona midfielder Gavi, according to Spanish outlet El Nacional. They are reportedly ready to offer €50 million for the teenager's serviecs.

Barcelona acquired Gavi from La Liga rivals Real Betis in 2015. The teenager has since risen through the ranks at the Blaugrana academy before making his senior debut this season.

Despite being only 17, Gavi has established himself as a starter for Barcelona. The midfielder has made 21 appearances across competitions for the Blaugrana so far, while also contributing four goals.

Gavi's performances for Barcelona have seen him attract transfer interest from clubs across Europe. The Spain international is tied with the Blaugrana till 2023, so his suitors are paying close attention to his contract situation.

Barcelona are keen to retain Gavi's services, and are said to be in talks over a new deal. Meanwhile, French giants PSG are the latest club to be interested in signing the former Real Betis youth star, according to reports. Gavi reportedly has a €50 million release clause in his contract with Barcelona. PSG are willing to match that sum to land the teenager.

Gavi is said to be keen to commit his long-term future to Barcelona. However, he is reportedly paying attention to the offers coming his way, thus forcing the Blaugrana to offer him a better contract.

It remains to be seen if Barcelona can make an offer that would convince Gavi to put pen to paper on a new deal. That's significant, considering interest from Mauricio Pochettino and co.
