Liverpool teenager Bobby Duncan is wanted by Nordsjaelland. According to The Daily Mail, Nordsjaelland are trying to sign Duncan on loan before the European transfer window slams shut.
Duncan, who is the cousin of Steven Gerrard, is highly rated by Liverpool. The former Manchester City wonderkid scored a stunning 32 goals for the academy teams last year and featured in Jurgen Klopp’s pre-season plans.
Scouts from Europe watched the 18-year-old in the U23 game against Chelsea on Monday. And the Danish Superliga side have made a formal loan bid which Liverpool are mulling over.
Nordsjaelland are hoping Duncan can boost their squad for the new season. After a sixth-place finish last season, Nordsjaelland are fourth this season with three wins in six games. Duncan would join fellow Man City academy product Godsway Donyoh in their attacking line-up.
Duncan could benefit from a spell away from Liverpool on loan. However, he might learn more from regular playing time in England. Liverpool might feel that the Danish top-flight is not ideal preparation for breaking into the first-team at Anfield.
The England youth international would have to drop to League One or League Two if he stays in England as the Championship window is shut. Alternatively, there might be other European clubs willing to give him a chance.
