Middlesbrough could be in for a bumpy January if recent reports are to be believed.
According to TEAMtalk, a host of clubs are interested in Dael Fry.
Liverpool are one of the clubs rumoured to be holding an interest in the England youth international ahead of the January transfer window, which is opening in just under six weeks.
The 21-year-old has been mightily impressive for Tony Pulis’ men this term, and he has been a part of a side that has conceded just eight goals in 17 matches, with a quarter of those coming in the first game of the season.
Fry has played 11 times this year for Boro, who sit second and just two points behind leaders Norwich City.
If Liverpool were to come in for the defender it would be a path the Premier League side have treaded before having signed Joe Gomez from Charlton previously.
A potential move to the top-tier giants is undoubtedly a story that will be watched with interest as the New Year approaches.
And with Liverpool monitoring the young centre-back, we asked our FLW writers if they thought it would be a good move.
It would be a bit pointless.
Liverpool have one of the best crops of centre-backs in the Premier League in Virgil Van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Joel Matip and Dejan Lovren, so it would be a big ask to give Fry game time as well.
Fry is a bright talent, however, so it certainly would not be a bad move.
I think Fry could be a very good signing for Liverpool in the long term.
He’s only 21, he’s played a huge role in Boro’s solid defence this term and is good with the ball at his feet.
These qualities will make him superb for Jurgen Klopp in the future.
This would be the perfect place for him.
Jurgen Klopp has already given youngsters such as Joe Gomez a chance in the first team, and he seems to be thriving under the management of the German.
He’s a young English talent that has the ability to be playing at the highest level possible.
He would be an excellent addition to the Liverpool squad.
