Bayern Munich and RB Leipzig are chasing a Liverpool starlet, while Manchester United are ready to hand a veteran star a new three-year deal, all in Monday’s papers.
LIVERPOOL YOUNGSTER WANTED IN GERMANY
Liverpool’s 17-year-old English forward Bobby Duncan, cousin of Reds legend Steven Gerrard, is reportedly a target for German clubs Bayern Munich and RB Leipzig.
The youngster only arrived at Anfield from Manchester City over the summer but has impressed in his short time on Merseyside and has even trained with Jurgen Klopp’s first team.
The England youth star has scored 10 goals for Liverpool’s academy side this season and his performances have not gone unnoticed abroad, as reported by the Daily Mail.
A number of English football’s brightest talents have moved to Germany in recent seasons in an attempt to get regular first team football.
Jadon Sancho left Manchester City for Borussia Dortmund and has since made his debut for England, while Arsenal’s Reiss Nelson is on loan at Hoffenheim and is also said to be close Gareth Southgate’s squad following a successful start to life in Germany.
And it would now appear that Duncan is the latest to attract the Bundesliga’s top clubs.
Duncan is not the only one turning heads in Germany, with Phil Foden and Calum Hudson-Odoi also causing interest due to a lack of first-team action.
