Liverpool keen on 15-year-old Scottish talent Bruno Davidson

Liverpool are interested in Scottish talent Bruno Davidson, but face a tough fight from Leicester City, according to the Daily Record.

The 15-year-old plays for Edinburgh side Hutchison Vale and has also caught the attention of Celtic.

The Scottish champions have offered Davidson a three-year deal, however, Sunderland and Wolverhampton Wanderers are also keen on the winger (h/t Daily Record).

Former Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has done a great job at Leicester. The Foxes sit just eight points behind us in second place and have only lost to Manchester United and us this season.

Rodgers knows a thing or two about Scottish football, and the former Celtic manager offered Davidson a trial too (h/t Daily Record).

Davidson featured for Leicester’s U16 against West Ham, with the London side also interested in the 15-year-old (h/t Daily Record).

More trials set for youngster

The report adds that Southampton have also planned a trial for the winger and it will be interesting to see where he could end up.

Davidson needs to make the right decision in joining his next club. The 15-year-old needs a club which is stable and hands youngster an opportunity to grow and feature for the first-team too.
