Liverpool are closely monitoring Leif Davis as a potential summer signing.
The Leeds youngster broke into Marcelo Bielsa’s first-team this campaign but has not played since February due to a knee injury.
But 19-year-old’s displays for the Championship side before injury struck has attracted the attention of Jurgen Klopp and rivals Bournemouth.
Leif Davis made his senior debut for Leeds United last December in a 3-2 victory over Aston Villa, playing in his natural left-back position.
Jurgen Klopp is targeting just two minor signings this transfer window and needs a back-up left-back for Andy Robertson.
Out-of-favour defender Alberto Moreno is tipped for a summer exit and the Premier League giants are eyeing the teenager as a replacement for the Spaniard.
Leif Davis only joined the second tier outfit last year from Morecambe, but the Argentina manager is already a big fan and keen to keep hold of the youngster.
The full-back is under contract until 2021 and valued by Leeds at around £4 million. Jurgen Klopp has been given a modest budget this transfer window and would be attracted to a cut-price deal for a defender.
Andrew Robertson has established himself as Liverpool’s first-choice left-back and one of the best at his position in the football world.
Despite having £10 million Scotland international the Reds suffered from a lack of options at full-back this term, with Jordan Henderson and James Milner forced to step in at left-back and right-back at times.
