Latest Liverpool transfer news: Portuguese giants want to sign Liverpool youngster Bobby Duncan
The English forward had a great season with the youth team at Anfield as he scored 25 goals in all competitions.
Duncan is also the cousin of former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard and formed a great partnership with Paul Glatzel last season.
The 18-year-old joined the Reds from Manchester City’s youth team and has impressed ever since. The report claims that Benfica and Porto are interested in the 18-year-old, and they want to copy the success achieved by some Bundesliga clubs.
Reiss Nelson and Jadon Sancho are a couple of English youngsters who have done well in the Bundesliga. The report adds that the Portuguese pair want to sign Duncan on a loan deal and will include an option to buy the English starlet.
Duncan still has time to develop into a well-rounded footballer, and the Reds should think of loaning him out to another club.
That will be a real test of his talent, and it will be interesting to see which set of players are sent out on loan in the summer.
