The Mirror revealed that Liverpool have stepped their pursuit of Fulham’s young starlet Patrick Roberts as they hope to beat Arsenal and Chelsea to the youngster.
The 17-year-old has been highly regarded in the Football Transfer Tavern this season after making 14 appearances for the first, which has attracted the attention of the Premier League’s big boys.
The Reds are desperate to beat their rivals to his signature and if they were to strike a deal, they would be willing to allow him to return to Fulham on loan until the end of the season.
Heading into the January transfer window, Brendan Rodgers has issued scouts to monitor the player further as they plot a bid to bring him to Anfield.
But Fulham will be keen to keep hold of the English youth player for as long as possible, especially as he has 2 years remaining on his current contract.
And the club have put tremendous faith in him at such an early age and the Championship side will hope their faith is repaid with his loyalty.
