Liverpool are reportedly interested in signing promising Aberdeen starlet Lancelot Pollard this summer, with Manchester United and Rangers also in the mix.
The Lowdown: Youngster making waves
Pollard’s rapid progress has clearly caught the eye of a number of clubs, with his stay at his current team potentially coming to an end this summer.
With Jurgen Klopp always looking to build towards the future, it could be that the Liverpool manager looks to bring him to Anfield at the end of the season.
The Latest: Liverpool eye up move
They are not alone in showing an interest, however, with Premier League rivals Manchester United and Rangers also keen on possibly spending a six-figure sum on him.
Klopp’s side could potentially scupper Man United’s or the Gers’ possible plans to sign Pollard if they decide to make a move.
The Verdict: Long-term planning
As mentioned, it is crucial that Liverpool plan for life well beyond Klopp, ensuring that his time in charge isn’t just a glorious era that ended after his tenure.
Acquiring the best young British talent is certainly a good way of preventing that and Pollard could fall into that category, considering his current reputation.
Admittedly, he remains unproven at a certain level and not a huge amount is known about him, but Liverpool’s success in the transfer market under Klopp suggests he is an exciting proposition.
