Premier League leaders Liverpool have reportedly joined the race to sign Norwich City defender Ben Godfrey this summer.

Both Manchester United and Arsenal have been monitoring the 21-year-old centre-back this season, with United said to be keen on both Godfrey and his Canaries team-mate Max Aarons.
