Liverpool and Manchester United are reportedly pursuing Stoke City’s Nathan Collins.
Plenty of Premier League clubs have their eyes set on the 19-year-old wonderkid.
He has Stoke’s standout performer this season, dropping out only through injury. Kevin Campbell, a former striker at Everton and Arsenal, believes it might be far too soon for Collins to move to Liverpool or United. Campbell is acquainted to Collins through his son, Tyreece.
“He is a great young player and he is also a very humble guy,” Campbell told Football Insider‘s Dylan Childs. “The boy can play, let me tell you.
“He’s been linked with Liverpool and United previously but games are everything at the age he is at. If Liverpool or United came in for him this summer there is no point in going because he is not going to start.
“He has got to be at a club where he will play and play regularly. Burnley could be a good move for him because he’s got a good chance of playing. He is still so young.”
Liverpool have already brought in Ozan Kabak and Ben Davies in January to counter their injury issues in defence this season. Plus, they also have Nat Phillips and Rhys Williams on contract at the club. Unless, Jurgen Klopp is ready to give up on all of them next term, it will be difficult for Collins to even get a look in at Anfield.
