Having witnessed Manchester City retake the lead at the top of the Premier League table, the pressure will have been upped on Liverpool to take all three points on Sunday when they meet Tottenham Hotspur.
However, it appears Jurgen Klopp’s side could be prepared to try and make a statement in the summer as they look to try and bring one of the Premier League’s outstanding talents to Anfield from one of their main rivals.
What’s the News?
According to a report by Football Insider, Michael Edwards has made contact with Chelsea as he looks to sign Callum Hudson-Odoi.
Liverpool are not the only side thought to be keen on the teenage sensation, with the likes of Bayern Munich, Juventus and Manchester United all interested, whilst the Blues are determined to keep their talented England international at Stamford Bridge.
There is no doubting the quality of Hudson-Odoi, which makes it all the more difficult to fathom why he has not been given a real chance at Chelsea this season, and a move to Liverpool could provide him with a fresh opportunity.
The teenager has shown that he is capable of making an impression on the pitch, whether that be in the short spells he has with the Blues, or now with his performances for the England national team.
With doubts about his future at Stamford Bridge as he continues to resist any attempts the club make to tie him down to a new contract, Liverpool could have the ideal opportunity to try and step in and steal him from their Premier League rivals.
However, finding a starting position in the side at Anfield may be something that he struggles to get with the current setup that Klopp employs for his team.
Although they adopt a similar approach to Chelsea with a 4-3-3, the likes of Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah will surely continue to keep their places as the main attack, whilst the 18-year-old would have to also compete with Xherdan Shaqiri.
Liverpool fans, can you see Hudson-Odoi fitting in at Anfield? Do you think the club should look to sign him? Join in with the discussion below by sharing your thoughts with us.
