Liverpool keeping “close eye” on Championship’s Young Player of the Season



Liverpool are reportedly eyeing young League player of the season, Alex Scott, who could provide a long-term midfield option.

With Liverpool reportedly set to spend £70m on Alexis Mac Allister, they will also be looking for cheaper options to improve the squad.

Scott is the latest name linked to a move to Merseyside, with the Liverpool Echo’s Keifer MacDonald reporting the Reds are “closely monitoring his development”.

The report added: “ECHO are aware that Liverpool are aware of the progress the teenager is making.”

The Bristol City midfielder was named the League’s young player of the season last month and his manager, Nigel Pearson, valued him at “over £25m”.

At just 19, Scott is younger than the other Liverpool-linked players in his role, but has what it takes to go the distance in the game.

Jack Grealish has already praised the youngster and Bristol City boss Pearson told BBC Radio Bristol: “[I have] no doubts about that, I think he will play for England and I think he will go top of the table.” the game.”

Scott already plays for the England under-20s and will soon compete in the World Cup for that age alongside Liverpool defender Jarell Quansah.

Another red he will know from international duty is Luke Chambers. However, the pair won’t be together this month as the Liverpool player opted to stay at Kilmarnock rather than fly to Argentina for the World Cup.

While £25million would be a steep price for Scott, who has never played top-flight football, Jurgen Klopp and his team certainly wouldn’t hesitate if they thought the 19-year-old was good enough.


Liverpool set to pay £800,000 to sign 14-year-old youngster love by Jurgen Klopp

Liverpool want to pay £800,000 to sign Yaya Toure-leased 14-year-old

As post-Brexit recruitment continues across the UK, Liverpool are reportedly ready to sign a 14-year-old defender for up to £800,000.

Following the implementation of Brexit, English clubs will no longer be able to sign players from outside the UK until their 18th birthday.
Stefan Bajcetic was Liverpool’s latest foreign signing for the academy, with a focus on the best young players from England, Scotland and beyond.

The likes of Kaide Gordon, Bobby Clark and Ben Doak have all joined since the rules changed, and the influx is expected to continue this summer.

Along with interest in Irish striker Mason Melia, the 15-year-old who scored on his debut for St Patrick’s Athletic in January, Liverpool are set to sign 14-year-old Harvey Owen from Wolves. According to The Secret Scout, this is for a hefty £800,000 fee.

That’s a significant outlay for a player under 15, as the club paid just £600,000 for Doak following his first-team debut for Celtic.

However, it does show Liverpool’s commitment to strengthening their youth ranks, who are still seen as a key asset to the seniors.
Owen arrives with the support of an unlikely figure in Yaya Toure – who now works at Tottenham – Wolves Academy manager Wes Hughes told the club’s official website in October.

“We recently played Tottenham Hotspur and he got a big pat on the back from a former Yaya Toure player,” said Hughes. “He personally went to Harvey and said he had great potential and would be a really good player in the future, so I think he’ll be very proud.”

Hughes went on to explain Owen’s ability as a player, with the teenager currently more comfortable playing at left centre-back.

“Harvey was introduced to the group last year when he was 13 and playing in the Under-15 Youth Cup,” he added.

“The boys went on and did quite well in the league and made it to the semis – Harvey was part of that journey and the boys were really into him as a younger player.

“He is a right-footed player who likes to play left in defence, both back three and back four.
“He has made great strides in football. “We strongly believe that if he can overcome some difficulties and overcome some adversities, he can surprise some.”

If Owen joined Liverpool, he would likely start as an Under-16 player and be slow to progress despite the £800,000 price tag.
