Liverpool rival Manchester United for transfer of quality young attacker

Liverpool are reportedly interested in the transfer of Leeds United wonderkid Jack Clarke, who has also recently been linked with Manchester United and other Premier League clubs.

The Reds are said to be making Clarke a priority transfer target for the summer, even if Leeds manage to win promotion from the Championship to the top flight, according to the Daily Express.

The 18-year-old can play a variety of attacking midfield roles and looks one to watch in the next few years, with interest from bigger clubs unsurprising after the potential he’s shown.

It was claimed back in January that Manchester United were joined by Manchester City and Tottenham in being keen on the youngster, according to the Sun, though a move never materialised.

Given the rivalry between Leeds and Man Utd, Liverpool could have some edge in this particular transfer battle.

LFC also have a fine recent record of trusting young players, with Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joe Gomez among those to get their chances to develop in Jurgen Klopp’s side.
