Liverpool will be desperate to keep the pressure on Manchester City in the current Premier League campaign, with the perfect opportunity to secure an elusive trophy under Jurgen Klopp.
The Reds managed to get the better of Everton in the Merseyside derby earlier on today as they extended their unbeaten domestic record and closed the gap on Man City.
However, it appears as if Jurgen Klopp is looking at potential additions at this moment in time, as according to The Sun (via the Express), Liverpool are set to battle it out for Romello Mitchell.
Liverpool and Manchester United are set to battle it out for 15-year-old wonderkid, Romello Mitchell.
Interestingly, Mitchell has caught the eye after scoring against both teams’ academies in recent games.
The attacker is currently 15 but he will be 16 by the time the transfer window reopens, where he can quit Birmingham for a small compensation fee.
So, having witnessed a number of youth products come up through the ranks and excel in the first-team ranks at Liverpool over the years, it comes as no surprise that the Reds are looking to work their magic once again.
Romeo Mitchell is clearly a special talent having attracted the interest of England’s two most successful clubs.
The Reds have witnessed the likes of Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joe Gomez’s rise to stardom in the current campaign, which offers the club an incentive to bolster their youth ranks.
Liverpool will be delighted if they manage to lure the youngster away from Birmingham City in the January transfer window as he has already shown plenty of potential.
