Liverpool are reportedly interested in Bournemouth midfielder Lewis Cook – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter are divided over the speculation.
The Reds already have a number of decent options in the centre of the park at Anfield, but are turning their attention on Premier League counterparts Bournemouth.
According to the Daily Mail, Liverpool are taking a look at one-time capped England international Cook and Chelsea are also mentioned as suitors.
The report explains that both clubs will watch him throughout the season, as he’s working his way back from an injury problem that has wrecked 2019 for him.
Cook was a first-team regular for Bournemouth before his injury setback and has returned in the last month to action.
The 22-year-old has drawn comparisons with Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson for his tireless energy and also leadership on the pitch.
He previously came through the academy ranks at Leeds United and has already proven himself in the top-flight too at a young age, but he’s now got to try make a comeback from a long injury.
The deep-lying playmaker likes to control possession and has a lot of attributes that would fit the style of Reds boss Jurgen Klopp, which is why it will be interesting to see how he performs this campaign.
Here are some Liverpool fans that are split over Cook:
Was good before his injury but who knows what he would be like afterwards

In his first game back he covered the most miles out of anyone on the pitch apparently, could see him becoming class under klopp
