Report: Liverpool keeping tabs on West Brom youngster Jovan Malcolm 

Recommended Posts

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.

Just watched the highlights of the u18s 6-3 loss on Saturday, and that kid looked razor sharp. Couple of really nice finishes and a thumping header when he was about four feet off the ground.


Maybe he can be the new Bobby Duncan!

I dunno, seems to me if we're going to be buying 16 year old English attackers, Jude Bellingham is the one we should be after.


I'm not going to say he's a can't miss, but he's a can't miss. Going to be a very good player, maybe a great one.

    • Some people put out a depleted XI against Shrewsbury, others put out a depleted XI against Real Madrid.
    • Jürgen Klopp has a strong ally in his decision to give his senior players a week off during the scheduled winter break rather than play in the fourth round replay against Shrewsbury.

      Klopp has received some criticism in some quarters, but Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers spoke strongly in favour of the German. 

      The Echo reported the Northern Irishman as saying:

      “He's well within his rights to do that.

      “That's why you have your first-team squad, you have reserve players and why you have youth players.

      "I said a number of weeks ago that the load that is put on players and the pressure that some players have over the December, Christmas period, this week was designed (to help that).

      “It's not really you would say a break, but it's something at least for the players to have and to go away and recover a little bit.

      "To then organise the replays within that was ridiculous.

      Rodgers believes managers should have every right to pick their team because player welfare should be at the forefront of everyone’s minds.

      “Jurgen is within his rights to pick whatever team he wants to pick.   "If he's going to decide to rest all his players for the benefit of the club, because that's who he is employed by, then that's what he does and he has every right to do that."  

      Importantly, Gini Wijnaldum is also right behind his manager’s actions and spoke about how important this break is for a player. 

      'Since I've been in the Premier League I've played the season without a winter break but I also know, before I came to the Premier League, how good it is for a player to have some rest.

      'After the rest you can go again. Your body is more rested than if you keep on going, so that's a good thing.

      “As a player you want to be involved in every game there is but you also have to deal with your body and sometimes your body just says that it is not the right choice to do.

      'You just have to see how the situation is but if the manager decides that the younger players are going to play the game then we should accept it.'

      Former Manchester United and England defender Rio Ferdinand understood the reasoning, but believed that Klopp should be on the touchline for the contest.

      "When you are a successful team, you are fighting on all fronts and Liverpool are doing that. I totally understand you have to shuffle your pack.

      “He wants to make sure his squad remains fresh and if he thinks he can get through to the next round with a younger team, then so be it. 

      “It's a great experience for those players.

      “The only issue I have and he's taking a liberty in some ways, is if he's not actually going to be in the dugout.
        “That's where I draw the line. I think the manager should be in the dugout for every game.   'It doesn't matter whether he's putting out a depleted squad or not."

    • I think our best possible "alternative" side should play. I reckon the "alternative" senior players should want to play - especially the ones who failed to impress yesterday. And I'd love it if Jurgen managed the game, and explained the reason for his turnaround: that his dedication and integrity in leading the club - and respecting paying fans - overrode his disillusionment with the convenient sense of propriety and inconsistency displayed by the nation's leading football bodies. That, to me, would be making an even bigger stand than the one he's currently planning on making.    
    • If only we'd got the job done yesterday... I'd be writing this in a non-existent thread.
