Report: Liverpool eye Leeds United full-back Leif Davis

Leeds United News: Liverpool are interested in Leeds United prospect Leif Davis, according to the Sun.

The 19-year-old has been cited by the Reds as the back-up for primary left-back Andrew Robertson.

Davis has already made five appearances this season before being hindered by a knee injury.

The Morecambe youth produce is tied with the Elland Road club until 2021 and manager Marcelo Bielsa turns out to be a big fan of the teenager.

The Argentine manager has been impressed with Davis’ progress in the reserves, which led him to his first-team call-up.

Now, the Reds want the Whites left-back as they look to offload the pressure of Scots man Robertson.
