The former Liverpool keeper believes McCallum’s screamer in the 4-1 victory over Wycombe Wanderers will only drive the talented youngster’s price up.

The defender had a good game against the League One leaders as he scored the opening goal and also won a penalty for his side.

A versatile player, the 19-year-old can play anywhere on the left flank while also being able to deputize at right-back if needed.

With James Milner having to deputize for Andy Robertson at left-back, Liverpool could be in the market for a specialist in the position.
