The Daily Mirror has reported that Liverpool are in ‘pole position’ to sign teenage Championship sensation Teddy Bishop.
Liverpool have a great setup for younger players and are always on the look-out for the best talent to add to their academy system.
The Mirror values Bishop at £10 million and suggests that Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are all interested.
Therefore, Liverpool are likely to have to fight for him and will more than likely have to pay top price if the report of the side’s interest is accurate.
Here are five facts about him, taken from the Mirror’s report and from his Wikipedia page.
He’s an 18-year-old midfielder currently playing at Ipswich Town.
He’s made 18 appearances for Ipswich so far this season.
He’s only ever represented Ipswich from youth team football into professional football.
Liverpool enquired about him in December 2014, but were knocked back.
He signed a two-year contract extension with Ipswich in September last year.
