Report: Tottenham, Everton and Liverpool scouting Matthew Knox

Tottenham, Everton, Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester United want Matthew Knox.

Tottenham, Everton, Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester United are all interested in Matthew Knox, the Daily Mail reports.

The 16-year-old forward currently turns out for Livingston, and made his debut on Boxing Day 2015. He came on as a substitute against St Mirren, just four days after his 16th birthday, breaking the club record set by Celtic’s Leigh Griffiths.

The youngster caught the eye in pre-season when impressing during some friendlies, and immediately had Premier League scouts sent out in force.

Everton invited him to look around their training ground, whilst Spurs had him turning out for their youth sides and getting involved in first-team training. Liverpool also got in on the act, and he managed to score for the Reds whilst on trial.

Those three teams continue to scout Knox, and they have recently been joint by both Chelsea and Manchester United.

Chelsea are holding back on their interest as of now, but United have offered Knox a trial spell, which saw him travel to Manchester yesterday with plans to remain at their Carrington training ground until the end of this week.

Knox has managed two appearances for Livingston, and has also been capped one time by Scotland’s Under-17 side earlier this season.
