Liverpool youngster Bobby Duncan has emerged as a target for two Bundesliga clubs.

That is the claim being made in an article by The Daily Mail, who are reporting that the seventeen year old is on the wanted list of Bayern Munich and RB Leipzig.

Former Manchester City trainee Duncan, who only arrived at Anfield earlier this year, has bagged ten goals for the academy side so far this season and that appears to have caught the eye of visiting scouts.

Young English talent moving to the Bundesliga in order to gain a better chance of playing first-team football is a growing trend and the two German clubs will hope they can convince Duncan to be one of the next to make the jump.

Borussia Dortmund have previously been interested in taking Duncan, who is Steven Gerrard’s cousin, away from Liverpool and have already shown that they will are prepared to give starts to another former City youngster in the shape of Jadon Sancho.

Sancho has broken in the England squad this season and was recently handed his first cap by Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate – something which may be a factor in any offer for Duncan.

Liverpool will not be keen on losing such an impressive talent and are likely to be readying a professional contract for the youngster in order to fend off rival clubs.
