Steven Gerrard may no longer be at Liverpool having taken up the managers job at Rangers, but one of his family members will be at Anfield next season.

Liverpool have pulled off the signing of 17-year-old Bobby Duncan from Manchester City - the cousin of the former Liverpool captain.

The highly-rated forward has signed a three-year professional contract on Merseyside and will be looking to follow in the footsteps of Gerrard.

The Reds have agreed a compensation package with the Premier League champions worth around £200,000 with Duncan set to start pre-season training at the academy on July 2.

Duncan grew up in nearby Huyton and is a lifelong Liverpool fan.

He spent time at both Liverpool and Everton as a kid but was snubbed by both.

He then signed for Wigan Athletic before he moved to Man City at the age of 10.

During the 2015/16 season, he scored a ridiculous 66 goals for City and he became the first English player to score a hat-trick against Brazil at any level during a 4-3 win for the national side’s Under-16s.

Just two examples of why Duncan arrives at Liverpool with such a massive reputation - not just because he’s cousins with one of the greatest players to have ever played for the club.

But just how good is he?

Well, we all know the best way to find out how good a player is by watching a YouTube compilation of them...

So, with that in mind, here is a video showing exactly what Duncan is capable of doing:

While he’s not going to be knocking on the door of the first-team next season, he’s certainly one to keep an eye on in the future.

With Duncan and fellow England youth star Rhian Brewster on the books, it seems Liverpool’s future in attack looks very promising indeed.
