Liverpool are reportedly planning to sign Leeds United wonderkid Jack Clarke this summer.

The talented forward who has just become 18 in November, has found back of the net twice and provided two assists in 16 games for the Leeds United during the 2018-19 season.

A number of top-flight teams are believed to be keeping tabs on Clarke’s progress, and according to The Mirror reports, Liverpool will attempt to secure services of the teenager this summers transfer window.

Indeed, the report have suggested that the Merseyside Reds head-coach Jurgen Klopp has sent scouts to keep close tabs on Clarke in action over the last couple of months.

The winger was taken ill during Leeds’ Championship games against Middlesbrough on Saturday night, however, has since been released from hospital and ready to make a return on the pitch as soon as possible.

The starlet agent, Ian Harte, has provided a positive injury update on Twitter, revealing that Clarke was ‘happy and smiling’ as he continues his recovery at home.

Meanwhile, Serie B team Brescia boss Massimo Cellino is reportedly prepared to play hardball with Premier League giants Liverpool and Chelsea when it comes to negotiating a deal for their rising star Sandro Tonali who has been on the radar of top European teams.

The 18-year-old in-demand playmaker is believed to be on the radar of the Premier League giants after impressing in Serie B this season.

According to the sources from Italy, last month suggested that the Merseyside Reds had firmed up their interest in Italian playmaker by making an official approach, however, Serie B side were eager to keep hold of their prized asset ahead of the next season.
