Liverpool join West Ham United in race to sign gifted midfielder



Premier League and Championship clubs are ready to battle it out for Barnet prodigy Daniel Cheema, according to The Sun


The 16-year-old is wanted by such top flight sides as Liverpool, Everton, West Ham, Sunderland and Swansea, as well as Championship clubs Brentford, Wolves and Reading.

With the recent successes of the likes of Jamie Vardy and Charlie Austin, clubs from the top two divisions are beginning to scour the lower divisions and non-league football for any hidden gems.

Cheema, who is a first-year scholar at Barnet, has caught the eye for their under-18 side this season with the winger finding the net 16 times so far.

Bees boss Martin Allen may offer the youngster first-team football in order to keep him around at The Hive, but the lure of the top clubs may be too good to turn down for Cheema.

Barnet are currently 19th in League Two with 21 points from 20 matches and face league rivals Newport County in the second round of the FA Cup this weekend.

What do you make to the news Barnet fans? Would you like to see Cheema stay? Does he have the potential to be a Premier League player? Let us know in the comments section below!
