Liverpool are on the verge of announcing the signing of Bobby Duncan, who is Steven Gerrard’s cousin, from Manchester City in the summer.
According to the Sun, the City’s youngster is an highly-rated youngster who broke into the limelight when he became the first player to score three goals in a single match against Brazil last summer.
The Merseyside club have been monitoring the 16-year-old’s development at the Citizen’s Academy and they are contended with what they’ve seen through his performances for the City’s under-19 squad all through the season.
The Sun further reports that Duncan is not ready to renew his contract with Manchester City, thereby, fuelling speculations that he is ready to join his uncle at Anfield in the 2018-19 season.
After rejecting the club’s contract offer, Duncan moved out of City to Wigan Athletic where he is training so as to maintain a fully-fit condition ahead of his speculated move to Liverpool.
Steven Gerrard, who is Liverpool Under-18 manager, will hope his cousin makes his move to the Anfield stadium so as to start working with him in order to help him reach his full potentials in short time.
Meanwhile, Manchester City have been confirmed the new Premier League Champions after Manchester United’s 1-0 defeat to West Brom at Old Trafford on Sunday.
José Mourinho’s men need to defeat the Baggies to keep more pressure on their neighbours for the trophy but they couldn’t achieve the result they wanted.
