Liverpool are continuing to plan for the future as they look across the country for the next generation of players, with post-Brexit regulations meaning they can’t sign under-18s from outside the UK.
The next player who could sign is Harvey Owen.
According to The Secret Scout, “Liverpool are set to compete a deal of up to 800k” for the Wolves defender.
The youngster is rated highly by many in football and even gained praise from the ex-Man City and Barcelona player, Yaya Toure.
In October, Owen’s academy coach, Wes Hughes, said: “We recently played at Tottenham and he had a nice pat on the back from an ex-player in Yaya Toure.
“He personally went up to Harvey and said that he had a lot of potential and would be a really good player in the future, so I think he’ll be really proud of that.”
It would be unfair to heap pressure on the kid, but that’s a big seal of approval from a top player.
