Bobby Duncan TEAMtalk

A Liverpool teenager could make an imminent move to Germany, while Man Utd are in the market for a new keeper amid new fears over David De Gea, according to Sunday’s papers.



Borussia Dortmund are firmly in the running to sign Bobby Duncan, should Liverpool decide to end his contract with the club.

That’s according to the Sunday Mirror, who claim the troubled youngster – whose agent accused the club of “mentally bullying” this week – could be allowed to move on in the wake of the simmering row.

Liverpool defended themselves against the allegations, while Jurgen Klopp took the unusual action of defending the club’s policies ahead of Saturday’s match against Burnley at Turf Moor.

However, the Mirror reckons Dortmund are in prime position to take advantage if Liverpool allow the teenager to move on, with Danish side FC Nordsjaelland and, most recently, Serie A club Fiorentina also linked with a move.

They suggest the Bundesliga side, who have made a play for a number of English youngsters recently, with Jadon Sancho the obvious example – want to take Duncan to the Westfalenstadion and also claim BVB are also in the running to land Birmingham’s Jude Bellingham, who became the club’s youngest-ever player when he made his debut at Swansea City last week.

Liverpool had wanted to retain Duncan but the report indicates they may decide it’s best for all parties if the player is allowed to move on.
