Liverpool 'make contact' in shock move for untested England youth starlet

Published Add your comment

Liverpool are being linked with a shock move for Middlesbrough left winger Cameron Park.

The England youth international has worked his way through the Academy ranks at the Riverside, and Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish is reportedly considering a move to bring the teenager to Anfield.

Park has minimal first team football experience, playing just seven senior minutes for Boro in the recent 4-0 victory against Bristol City at Ashton Gate. The 18-year-old had an instant impact, winning a penalty for Tony Mowbray's side.

Liverpool are thought to be in the market for attacking talent in the January transfer window, although it's likely that Park would have to earn his opportunities by impressing in the youth and reserve teams at Melwood first.


The Daily Mirror claims that Liverpool have already made contact with regards to a move for the player, although the paper does not mention a fee that would be needed to bring the player to Merseyside.

Park follows Chris Brunt, Stewart Downing and Adam Johnson off the Boro production line in the left wing position, with the player tipped to be the next big star from the club's impressive junior setup.

Liverpool have made the first move with regards to bringing the player to the Barclays Premier League, and whilst the move is a surprise to many it continues the policy of new owners NESV, who want to see young, attacking talent coming through at Anfield.

Jonjo Shelvey, David Amoo, Suso and Michael Ngoo are just four teenagers tipped for big things on Merseyside, and Liverpool will hope to add Park to this exciting young crop.
