We’re not sure we buy this one…
According to the Daily Mail, Liverpool starlet Bobby Duncan is potentially seeking an exit to enhance his chances of first-team football.
Their article says the striker, who scored 32 goals for our youth teams this season, is ‘deeply concerned’ about a lack of opportunities at Liverpool considering our current front-three are world-class, in their prime and going nowhere.
The Mail go on to suggest multiple English and European clubs are assessing the situation – which isn’t surprising considering his talent.
So where do we stand? Duncan is Steven Gerrard’s cousin, a massive red, and we just can’t see him jumping ship after just one season at the club he loves. He’s also on a five-year contract.
The forward has done superbly in tandem with Paul Glatzel and we expect to see both in the U23s next season. At just 17-years-old, Duncan is in no rush – and the chance to develop at Liverpool and not a lesser club is not a negative.
We reckon Jurgen Klopp will give Duncan chances during pre-season, as he did with Curtis Jones last summer – and then have the youngster as our starting U23 forward in 2019/20.
If he’s good enough, he’ll be fast-tracked, just like Rhian Brewster.
