Borussia Dortmund are amongst a host of European clubs keen to snap up Liverpool starlet Bobby Duncan, according to the Daily Mail.
The 18-year-old, who hit 32 goals for the Reds’ academy sides last season, is expected to be handed a chance to prove himself by Jurgen Klopp during preseason, but is attracting interest from elsewhere.
The report suggests that Klopp’s former club are one of several from the Bundesliga who are keeping tabs on the youngster, whose contract expires in less than two years.
Losing Duncan would be a real shame. There’s no saying that the youngster is the next big thing to burst onto the scene, and at the moment he is certainly some way down the pecking order at Anfield, but any player who can net 32 goals at any level is clearly a talent worth watching. You would hope that Duncan’s affiliation with the Reds, being Steven Gerrard’s cousin an all, would be enough o convince him that his long term future lies on Merseyside, but the fact of the matter is that moves to the continent are becoming an increasingly viable and common option for young British footballers. The likes of Jadon Sancho and Reiss Nelson have flourished in recent times thanks to spells in Germany, and Duncan may look at those two as fine examples of a path that his career could yet take. For now, however, his priority must be impressing Klopp this summer.
