Liverpool: Daily Mail makes Charlie McArthur claim -Liverpool News

Liverpool are among the clubs interested in Kilmarnock defender Charlie McArthur, according to a report from the Daily Mail

The lowdown: Top talent

Still just 17 years old, McArthur has already made great sides in senior football north of the border following a senior debut in a 3-1 victory over Queen’s Park in October 2021.

Since then, the Scotland Under 17 captain has made three further jaunts into first-team action and has often appeared on the substitutes’ bench in the Scottish Championship.

Having already secured a deal to bring Aberdeen right-back, Calvin Ramsay, to Anfield, despite the suggestion that the entrance could now be closed on new arrivals, another talented Scottish teenager has been linked to the Reds.

The latest: Liverpool named

As per the Daily Mail report, Liverpool, Manchester City West Ham, Wolves and Brighton are all in the mix to sign McArthur as the newly promoted Premiership side look to recoup a six-figure fee for the central defender.

It’s claimed that mega-rich Newcastle United are the frontrunners for the ten-cap Scotland youth ace but they ‘face competition’ from the numerous Premier League rivals.

The report also states that ‘other unnamed clubs’ have informed Kilmarnock of their interest in the youngster who was described as a ‘dream to work with’ by former manager Tommy Wright after his senior bow.

Liverpool fans! Do you remember who scored your first league goal of the 21/22 season?

The verdict: Room for one more?

Whilst numerous journalists have claimed that the business is done and dusted for the summer in terms of first-team additions on Merseyside, a recent tendency to snap up the hottest young talents could see Julian Ward fire up his negotiation prowess once again for a target such as McArthur.

Captures of Harvey Elliott, Fabio Carvalho, Kaide Gordon – as well as the aforementioned Ramsay – are proof of a penchant at Anfield to stockpile the next generation of stars and with early exposure to competitive action already under his belt, the Scottish teen would certainly tick plenty of boxes as a potential candidate to add to Jurgen Klopp’s deepening squad.

Add to that a burgeoning desire to bring Scotland’s best to the Premier League in the wake of the impact of Brexit on bringing in youngsters from the continent, further illustrated by the signing of Ben Doak from Celtic, then the Reds could certainly enter the running for McArthur before it’s too late.
