And Liverpool may move to further reinforcements. In an effort to strengthen the midfielders in each age group, reports circulated that the club was trying to acquire 17-year-old midfielder Archie Gray from Leeds United, and Fabrizio Romano, an Italian journalist, testified that this is true.

“Liverpool have sent their scouts to follow Archie Gray multiple times. Not the only club as many teams appreciate him and keep tracking. No bid or concrete negotiation at this stage, but they appreciate him.”

Leeds United was relegated from the Premier League last season, but up-and-coming 17-year-old midfielder Archie Gray has been promoted to the first team. He has played 15 games so far in the Championship, 13 of which he has been named in the starting lineup.

He has been used mainly as a defensive midfielder, but also as a right back, and has a high level of utility. He has also made his debut for the England U-19 national team, and many clubs besides Liverpool are interested in him, making the race for him a fierce one.

Can Liverpool acquire a midfielder who could be a mainstay in their midfield for the next 10 years?
