Following poor Premier League campaigns, the Merseyside and West London clubs are looking for new midfielders this summer.
Liverpool have already made a substantial addition, signing Alexis MacAllister from Brighton & Hove Albion for a sum in the region of £35 million.
Meanwhile, Chelsea are overseeing a number of departures in order to permit the acquisition of Moises Caicedo, also from the Seagulls.
However, each of the aforementioned clubs has previously been identified as supporters of Veiga as they look to the present and future.
The dynamic playmaker is coming off an outstanding 2022-23 season in which he scored 11 goals and assisted four times in 36 La Liga appearances.
Nonetheless, the Spanish club is aware that its most treasured asset may go in the coming weeks as a result of the 21-year-old’s release clause.
Liverpool and Chelsea to fight for Gabri Veiga
According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Liverpool and Chelsea have already formally inquired about that option, which is thought to be worth around £34 million.
However, as things stand, neither team is said to have made a formal approach to Celta Vigo while they consider whether or not to pursue Veiga’s signature.
Nonetheless, Chelsea executives are said to have inquired about the possibility of negotiating the final sum or whether Celta Vigo is open to other payment methods.
With three years remaining on the contract of the Spain Under-21 international, Celta Vigo may insist on accepting such a fee in full, especially because rival clubs are keeping an eye on the situation.
Real Madrid and Newcastle United have previously been associated with Veiga, with the former’s manager Carlo Ancelotti publicly praising the player’s abilities.
Meanwhile, Newcastle boss Eddie Howe has expressed a desire for signing players who can play many positions, with Veiga capable of playing in central midfield, a creative role behind the striker, and as a false nine.
