Report: Liverpool chance beckons for Bobby Duncan, but Borussia Dortmund show interest

The Reds academy prospect has pre-season to try and impress Jurgen Klopp.

Liverpool youngster Bobby Duncan is attracting interest from Borussia Dortmund, according to a report by the Daily Mail.

The 18-year-old netted for the Reds in last night’s 6-0 rout of Tranmere Rovers and is expected to be handed more opportunities to impress in pre-season.

He netted 32 goals in all competitions for the academy outfit and looks set for a bright future in professional football.

Several German clubs, including Dortmund, are beginning to circle, however.

Duncan has just two years left on his contract and clubs could pounce if Klopp decides he isn’t part of his plans moving forward.

 

TBR Verdict

Liverpool boasts a proud history of producing players using their own academy.

The club’s supporters would be desperately disappointed if Duncan is one player that slips through the net.

His partnership with fellow academy striker Paul Glatzel was a joy to behold last season and fans will relish seeing that on the first-team stage.

Duncan got his pre-season audition off to a flyer last night. He completed the 6-0 win with a neat finish in the 67th minute.

All he can do is continue to impress.

The ball is in Duncan’s court now and if he is serious about forging a career at Liverpool, he must impress Klopp during the pre-season schedule.
