Liverpool are ready to swoop for 17-year-old Wolves starlet Morgan Gibbs-White, according to a report.

Gibbs-White was part of the England Under-17s World Cup-winning squad in India last month.

He played in the No. 10 role and scored in the 5-2 final win over Spain and he has been gathering admiring glances from a clutch of Premier League clubs.

The Sun reports Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham are all tracking the player, who can also play as a conventional striker.

The tabloid claims Jurgen Klopp is preparing a £5million bid for the player, who cannot be offered new terms at Woves until he is 18 in January.

He is under contract until June 2019, having come through the ranks at Molineux since the age of eight, but the report claims he may well be tempted by a move to one of the Premier League’s big guns.

The attacker made his first-team debut earlier this year, coming on as a substitute in Wolves’ 2-0 League Cup win over Stoke and he was on the bench in the League Cup win over Bristol Rovers this season.

Gibbs-White made 12 senior appearances last season, including two starts in the Championship, but his chances have been at a premium this season.
