Champions League side line up shock move for Liverpool star who played in the Championship last year

Champions League side line up shock move for Liverpool star who played in the Championship last year

A highly-rated Liverpool youngster could be on the move after a spell in the Championship last season.

Liverpool youngster Tyler Morton is being monitored by several clubs after a string of impressive loan appearances.

The 21-year-old is from Merseyside and played for his boyhood club from the age of seven. He's made a total of nine appearances for the Reds including two in the Champions League.

He has spent the last two seasons away on loan impressing for Blackburn Rovers, helping guide them to a seventh-placed finish in 2023.

Morton then played a key role in Hull City's success last season, making 41 appearances in a campaign which saw them narrowly miss out on a place in the play-offs.

The England under-21 international is wanted by almost every Championship club, but it seems he's setting his sights much higher.

As reported by The Times, Bundesliga side RB Leipzig are one of a number of clubs interested in signing Morton permanently this summer.

It's unclear if Liverpool are willing to sell the youngster, with new manager Arne Slot likely to be in the process of deciding which players are in his plans and which aren't.

Morton is due to report for pre-season training with the Reds and is expected to be given an opportunity to impress during their tour of the USA next month.

The player will want to be guaranteed a certain number of minutes if he's to remain at Anfield and compete for a place.

If not, then he may seek out a permanent move given he's spent the last two years away from the club.

It would then depend on how much Liverpool value him and whether RB Leipzig or any other interested club would be willing to pay that fee.

He signed a new long-term contract just over a year ago, so the Reds won't be forced to sell him at a cut price.
