Liverpool: Reds beating Chelsea to Ben Doak

Liverpool: Reds beating Chelsea to Ben Doak -Liverpool News

Liverpool are set to prevail in the transfer race to sign Ben Doak from Celtic, according to The Daily Mail‘s Brian Marjoribanks. 

The lowdown

The 16-year-old winger impressively made his senior debut for Celtic within a month of his B-team bow. Former academy coach Martin Miller has described him as a player with ‘plenty of self-belief and ambition’, along with immense pace and technical skill.

‘A couple of weeks ago’, according to The Athletic’s Kieran Devlin, Doak informed Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou of his wish to leave the club.

The latest

Marjoribanks wrote for The Daily Mail on Saturday morning that Liverpool were ‘closing in’ on signing Doak from Celtic. Jurgen Klopp’s side have edge on ‘other leading Premier League clubs’ who have shown interest, ‘including Chelsea’.

The 16-year-old is set to cost the Reds just £150,000 in compensation, as he is yet to sign a professional contract at Parkhead.

The verdict

This prospective deal shows the pulling power that Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool possess.

Indeed, according to The Athletic‘s James Pearce, the prospect of working under the German at Anfield has proved crucial in making up Doak’s mind.

Pearce also pointed to the Merseyside club’s ‘pedigree for developing and promoting young players’ in recent years. The likes of Caoimhin Kelleher, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Curtis Jones and Harvey Elliott have all broken into the first team after impressing at under-23 level for the Reds.

By the looks of it, there could be yet another hot up-and-coming talent to excite Kopites over the next few years.
