Liverpool are interested in signing highly-rated left-back Leif Davis from Leeds United this summer, according to a report by The Sun.
The report states that Liverpool are looking to provide back-up for first-choice left-back Andy Robertson, with Alberto Moreno likely to be released in the summer.
Davis joined Leeds from Morecambe last summer as part of their development squad, but was given a chance in the first-team much sooner than anticipated, due to the Whites’ injury problems at left-back.
The 19-year-old went on to make five appearances for Leeds this season, before his campaign was cut short due to an injury of his own.
Bournemouth are also thought to be interested in signing the teenager, but Leeds head coach Marcelo Bielsa is keen for him to remain at Elland Road.
So, would Davis be a good signing for Liverpool and would a switch to Anfield be a good move for him?
“I’d steer clear of this one.
“There’s no doubting that Davis has a bright future ahead of him, but I’m not convinced that Liverpool would be the best destination for him in the summer.
“They already have Andy Robertson and there is absolutely no chance that Davis will replace him anytime soon.
“It would be a wasted move.”
“It’s too hard to call.
“He hasn’t really been given a chance under Bielsa, but it’s clear that he is very talented and is highly regarded by those at Elland Road.
“Will he be receiving regular game-time at Anfield over the next few years? I doubt it.
“He needs to consider his options carefully.”
“I think Davis could be a decent player for Liverpool in the future, but I’m not sure it’s the right move for him at this stage of his career.
“He needs to be playing regular first-team football to realise full potential and he is highly unlikely to get that at Liverpool at the moment.
“There would be no point in him moving to Anfield to sit on the bench every week and he would probably be better off remaining at Leeds, where he is more likely to be given a chance.”
