Liverpool and Chelsea eye young Scottish midfielder Alan Domeracki
According to the Daily Record (h/t The Express), Liverpool and their Premier Rivals Chelsea are eyeing young Scottish midfielder Alan Domeracki. Currently, on the books of Dundee United, even Aston Villa also have their eyes on the highly rated midfielder.
Liverpool are no alien to the Scottish market, with two of our full-backs from the island nation. Andy Robertson has been a vital cog for Liverpool under Jurgen Klopp and Calvin Ramsay joined the club earlier this summer from Aberdeen.
Domeracki is a central midfielder. He has been under contract at Dundee since June. It has been observed that the Scottish club emphasises a lot of youth development under the new owner Mark Ogren.
Who is Domeracki
The Reds in the market for a young midfielder? With Liverpool’s ageing squad and especially the midfield, it does not come as a shock that the Merseysiders have targeted an up-and-coming young player.
James Milner will be 37 years old by the time this season ends. Skipper Jordan Henderson will be 33 and Thiago will also age a year and breach the 32-year mark. With the future of Alex Oxlade- Chamberlain and Naby Keita at the club still unsure, it would be a no-brainer for the Reds to sign a young player.
The natural younger options in midfield for the Reds to choose from apart from Ox and Keita include Curtis Jones (currently injured) and Fabio Carvalho, who plays advanced midfield. Harvey Elliott stands excluded from this list as the 19-year-old is primarily a right-winger.

Although there is not much information about Domeracki, Liverpool should be able to trust their scouting department and take a chance with the youngster as he would not cost the club a lot and gives the Reds the opportunity to develop the player in accordance with their needs.
With multiple midfielders on the radar of Liverpool already, it is to be seen for which of the potential targets the Reds actually move for. Domeracki, given his age, would see himself initially integrated into the age-group squads rather than the senior squad in case a move concretes.
