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.

    • Nice read that,Another ex.player in the Liverpool F.C.extended family.
    • David Ngog has recalled his greatest moment in a Liverpool shirt after Mo Salah’s strike on the weekend against Man United brought back some fond personal memories.

      The Frenchman’s stint on Merseyside is not what you would call prolific or particularly memorable by any means, but one moment clearly stands out above all others.

      The late substitute wrapped up victory against Liverpool’s arch rivals when he was put through on goal by Lucas Leiva and side footed it past Edwin Van Der Sar in the United goal.

      The jubilant crowd reaction after sealing a victory following a poor run of form was matched by the players with goalkeeper Pepe Reina running the length of the pitch to jump into the arms of the striker.

      A similar reaction took place on Sunday with Allison and Salah embracing and Ngog certainly noticed the parallels as he told the Official site.      

      “It's unbelievable how close it is.

      “It's different play of course – he has a longer run and he read it well against the defender. 

      “But that was in the last minute, against Man United, it brings back memories.

      “ I was at home but I was with my family as well. 

      I saw the two goals and I was happy because it's Liverpool and it's really important this season.   "It was exciting. To be honest, at that time I was just watching, not thinking about the goal before. 

      "But when I saw the replay and saw it was similar – and the celebration, of course, with Alisson running. It was really, really funny to watch."

      Ngog who is still just 30yo, has made many stops in his football career since leaving the Reds and English Football, taking him far and wide to Greece, France, Scotland and currently in Hungary.

      But it is the moment in October of 2009 which he recalls with pride.   “I think it was one of my great memories when I was in Liverpool.

      "Especially the celebration with Pepe, who was a great teammate, a great player, goalkeeper and a great guy.

      Ngog said that the celebration that took place was a pure spur of the moment thing that Football often delivers.

      “It was a surprise for me to see Pepe when I turned back to celebrate! Afterwards, it was just joy and you want to share with the fans and everybody.   "It was a great memory. 

      “The celebration is one of the best and it's just improvisation. 

      “You don't really prepare for it, it just happens in the moment."

      Despite being well removed from playing for the club, he still holds the Reds very closely to his heart.   And just like any fan, he hopes they go one step further this season.

      “They're in the best position possible.

      “I think Jürgen Klopp did a great job in getting everyone involved. 

      “They play with a lot of energy and it's just great to watch.   "I really hope – and I think – they will succeed this season."

      While Ngog struggled for consistent minutes, he views his time at the club where he made 94 appearances and scored 19 goals in an extremely positive light.

      "I was in at a young age and had plenty to prove.

      "I was surrounded by great players with great experience and I think I learned a lot from it. 

      "For me, it's all good memories.   "Of course you always want to do more but for me at that age it was a good achievement for me in my life and my career."

    • Anyone see how Reina did with Vanilla today?   Did he put his hip out, and did behave his teeth in for the match?
    • It's just fucking brilliant isn't it?  Pickford in the back of his goal with his little arms out is just the best thing i have seen this year.
    • Our team is already incredible and we are buying Mbappe, Werner, Sancho, Havertz and Troy Deeney.
