Bobby Duncan is set to become a Fiorentina player after Liverpool agreed a £1.9m deal to sell the player permanently.
The Mirror reported that the Reds agreed a £1.9m move for the teenager, plus a 20% sell-on clause, after buying him for just £200,000 from Manchester City last year.
The nature of Duncan’s exit from Liverpool left a sour taste with some supporters, with @AnfieldRd96 on Twitter name-checking a series of young players at the club in a thinly-veiled swipe at the 18-year-old striker.
Ki-Jana Hoever, Sepp van den Berg, Yasser Larouci, Harvey Elliott, Curtis Jones and Rhian Brewster are real ones.

Sky Sports reported last week that the teenager was looking to leave the club despite never playing competitively for the first team, but the club rejected loan offers for the player, who scored 25 times for Liverpool’s youth teams last season.
Along with Duncan, Paul Glatzel was prolific at youth and reserve level for the Reds in 2018/19 with 21 goals, and in the context of Duncan’s departure from Anfield, these Liverpool fans on Twitter had their say on Glatzel, who was omitted from @AnfieldRd96’s tweet about youngsters at the club:
Please respect Paul Glatzel

Also Glatzel who Klopp rates more than Duncan. Also think Grujic will be in the first team next season

Glatzel has the potential tbh shame that he’s injured

Don't forget about my man Glatzel

I actually rate Paul Glatzel highly too

How have you completely ignored Glatzel?
