Liverpool could move for £20M Aston Villa star following contract rejection – Julian Ward could pounce on stalled talks

Liverpool have a history in recent years of signing players at a young age due to their contract situations and that could well be the case again here.

Having secured younger players on a free (Harvey Elliot, Dominic Solanke) or for a low fee (Fabio Carvalho, Danny Ings) the Reds have done some solid business in recent years.

Whilst Ings and Solanke went on to be sold for huge profits, Elliot has developed into a first-team midfielder aged 19.

With England’s U19 European Championship-winning captain available for a snip this summer, it may be time for Liverpool to move again.

The midfielder is out of contract next summer and has rejected all the offers that Villa have proposed.

With the club not wanting to lose the talented young player for free, they may be forced to part ways with him for a fee of around £20M this summer.

The player has been left of Villa’s pre-season tour and is currently demanding a large contract to stay at Villa Park.

Arsenal, Newcastle United, Barcelona, Borussia Dortmund and others are interested in him – a list of clubs which offer an insight into his level.

Liverpool’s summer business is reportedly done as far as incomings go, but this may be a deal too good to pass up.

The quality demonstrated as he led his country to success has caught a lot of eyes, with some calling him the next Jude Bellingham

His athletic six-foot build would offer something different for Klopp but would also be a star for the future as well.

With Liverpool’s midfield due for a re-energise in the near future, Chukwuemeka could be the perfect addition and player for Klopp to work with.
