Liverpool youngster Herbie Kane is reportedly attracting the interest of Championship outfit Swansea City (via Football League World).
The 20-year-old has barely featured for the Reds this season and could look to leave the club in January.
Kane spent the 2018/19 season on loan at League One outfit Doncaster Rovers, and it would be fair to say that he impressed during his time at the Keepmoat Stadium.
Indeed, he played 49 times for the South Yorkshire club and managed to contribute with seven goals and 10 assists from central midfield (via Transfermarkt).
As a result there was plenty of interest in the 20-year-old in the summer, including from Scottish giants Rangers (via rangersnews.uk).
However, Liverpool opted to keep him at Anfield with the idea that he would get some opportunities in the first team (via Football365).
But that hasn’t really happened for him, with his sole appearance this season being an eight-minute cameo in the Reds’ EFL Cup win against MK Dons (Transfermarkt).
According to Football League World, Swansea are showing an interest in the player with manager Steve Cooper thought to be keen to recruit him in January.
Given that he has barely featured this season, Liverpool may well be willing to allow him to leave and join the Welsh side.
At this point, a loan move probably looks the best option for both Liverpool and for Kane.
His opportunities to play for the Reds this season appear to be extremely limited. He is unlikely to play in the Premier League with his only chance of minutes likely to be in the EFL Cup.
He did extremely well at Doncaster in League One and a move to the Championship now looks to be the natural next step for him.
It probably isn’t worth Liverpool selling him just yet; they should see how he gets on in the Championship first and then assess his long-term future in the summer.
Will Liverpool win the Premier League title this season?
