Liverpool are among a number of clubs are following of progress of exciting young West Brom striker Jovan Malcolm
The Mirror reports that the 16 year-old is impressing a number of observers with the quality of his play at the U/18 level.
Malcolm has scored seven goals (including four against the Reds) and produced three assists in nine games at the under age level this season.
It was said that Liverpool coaches were ‘blown away’ by the pure footballing talent of Malcolm and want to take advantage of the fact that the youngster cannot sign a professional contract with the Baggies until his turns 17.
Liverpool are not the only Premier League team tracking the exciting talent with Man United, Arsenal and Man City also showing interest.
However, with Jurgen Klopp’s proven record of giving youngsters opportunities, then it stands a good chance that Liverpool will mount a good case for his signature.
The policy of identifying young stars is a smart one as shown by the signing of Harvey Elliott in the summer.
If you wait a further 12-18 months down the line, you could be easily be paying 5-10 times more for the player in this inflated market for home grown players.
One player who Liverpool will have to be shelling out a fair bit of coin for is Jadon Sancho who has also been linked with the Reds again.
All the big hitters in European football are interested in the Borussia Dortmund and England star.
After Jurgen Klopp poured cold water on the Mbappe link last week, it would be interesting to see how keen we are on this fine talent.
