Daniel Cheema: Linked with move to Liverpool
Liverpool are among a host of Premier League clubs tracking Barnet’s teenage sensation Daniel Cheema, sources have told

Cheema has been attracting the interest of a number of clubs higher up the football pyramid after catching the eye for Barnet’s youth sides.

The 16-year-old winger has scored 16 goals this season for Barnet’s youth side and he is tipped as a future star by the League Two club.

Cheema, who joined Barnet at Under-11s, was the top scorer for Barnet’s Under-16’s last season, nothing 20 goals in 26 games.

Cheema’s progress has seen him called up to train with Martin Allen’s first-team on a couple of occasions, although he is yet to make his senior debut.

Liverpool, Everton, Sunderland, Swansea, Norwich and West Ham have all been keeping tabs on Cheema, while Championship sides Wolves, Reading, Brentford and Charlton are also on the teenager’s trail.

Barnet are bracing themselves for interest in Cheema in the New Year with the former captain of England’s futsal side sure to be in high demand if he continues his rapid progress.
