Anfield want super starlet.
Liverpool have moved to the front of the queue to sign Wycombe Wanderers striker Jordan Ibe following his goalscoring debut at the weekend.
The 15-year-old netted in his first senior start on Saturday, a 2-1 loss to Sheffield Wednesday, and was booked for celebrating with his family.
Reds manager Kenny Dalglish was alerted to Ibe last summer, who has attracted interest from Manchester United and rejected a move to Fulham.
The Scot, who was uncertain whether Ibe was ready for the move up has now been convinced and is ready to offer the teenager a dream move.
His manager Gary Waddock is convinced the starlet has a big future ahead of him and will make a big impression on the Premier League.
“We just want to make sure he goes on and fulfils the potential he’s got,” Waddock told the BBC. “And, with the talent he’s got, he could go and play at the highest level.
“If it was a senior player you’d be saying ‘what a fantastic goal’. He’s 15 and to do that on your debut tells you the quality the lad’s got.
“He trains with us and we see the talent he’s got every time he’s in our training sessions, and why not [start him]?
“I took the age out of it and looked at the player on merit and he deserves his chance. Did he take it? He certainly did.”
