Liverpool prepare bid for Arsenal & United target - reports

Published Add your comment

Liverpool are reportedly ready to reignite their interest in Manchester United and Arsenal target Max Clayton.

The Crewe Alexandra teenager is regarded as one of the finest prospects in the Football League and played for England at the under-17 World Cup in the summer.

According to the Daily Mail, Kenny Dalglish is ready to launch a renewed attempt to bring Clayton to Anfield, while Arsenal and Manchester United are also monitoring his progress.

It is unclear whether or not Arsene Wenger or Sir Alex Ferguson have launched previous attempts to sign the young striker, but Liverpool made an approach earlier this year.

Crewe director of football Dario Gradi claimed at the time that Liverpool made an illegal move for Clayton and refused to let him move to Anfield.

The Reds, however, are understood to have maintained an interest in Clayton, although may have to battle with Arsenal and United if they formalise their interest.
