Blackpool and Plymouth Argyle have been amongst a group of clubs that have been scouting some of Liverpool’s talented young prospects ahead of the January transfer window, according to The Sun.
It is believed that Liverpool’s Elijah Dixon-Bonner and Billy Koumetio are being monitored by several different clubs with the potential for them to be loaned out during the winter transfer window by the Reds.
However, Dixon-Bonner is thought to be attracting interest from the Premier League in the shape of Brentford.
Koumetio though is thought to be being eyed up by a number of Championship clubs as Liverpool prepare to potentially allow him to leave on a temporary basis to get game time in the second half of the campaign.
The defender was on target in Liverpool’s Premier League Two win against Derby County recently and he has been impressing with his performances in the academy for the Reds this season.
Quiz: Have each of these 24 ex-Blackpool academy players ever played in the Premier League?
According to The Sun’s report, Blackpool manager Neil Critchley and Plymouth Argyle manager Ryan Lowe have both been amongst the group of people checking out Liverpool’s young talents ahead of potential moves for them in January.
Critchley obviously has a lot of close ties with Liverpool’s academy and so it is no surprise to see that he has been checking out one or two of their best talents ahead of the January transfer window. It could be a very wise approach for Blackpool to exploit as they aim to continue their impressive recent momentum.
Plymouth are also going strong in League One and they could be a very interesting place for Liverpool to send some of their talented young players to in the winter window. It will be interesting to see whether they do make a loan attempt for any of the players that Lowe watched at Liverpool.
Loaning quality players might be the difference for both of these sides in the second half of the campaign because both are on track to perform far better than expected this term.
They will both be seen as an attractive potential destination to loan young players out to at the moment you would imagine given the way they are performing.
