Former Liverpool target Alphonso Davies came in for high praise from fans last night, after he helped Bayern Munich tear Chelsea apart at Stamford Bridge in the Champions League.
The Canada international was in fine fettle against the Blues operating as a left-back and gave Frank Lampard’s side all sorts of problems.
Davies, 19, is enjoying a lengthy run in the Bayern team at the moment, with David Alaba having been operating as a central defender.
He is flourishing with the Bavarian giants, and now has eight assists for the season after setting up Robert Lewandowski’s goal at the Bridge.
The teenager is certainly showing the kind of ability which reportedly had Liverpool desperate to sign him before he headed to Germany.
According to The Toronto Sun in 2018, Reds officials were still keen on the 17-year-old Davies having first been drawn to him after he finished top scorer at the 2017 Gold Cup.
In the end, Liverpool were powerless to sign the exciting youngster, who left for Bayern in a deal that could reach £16.66 million (BBC Sport).
TBR’s view – Liverpool must continue to keep tabs
It is now becoming plainly obvious why Liverpool previously wanted to snap up Davies.
His performance against Chelsea was truly exhilarating, and appears set to become a top left-sided player.
It may be within Liverpool’s interests to continue tracking Davies.
A move this summer would be highly unlikely, but perhaps in a couple of years when he’s nearer to the end of his contract the Reds can try again to sign Davies, depending on where his development is at
