According to The Sun, Liverpool are leading the race to sign Morgan Gibbs-White from Wolverhampton Wanderers for £5 million, but Tottenham Hotspur could surely scupper the deal if they made a bid.

Liverpool are said to be closing in on snapping up Gibbs-White, with Jurgen Klopp wanting to add the teenager to his exciting line-up at Anfield.

Gibbs-White may be tempted by Liverpool’s prestige and history, but if he truly wants to progress his career, then Spurs look like the best club in England to be at.

Dele Alli and Harry Kane have become genuine superstars at Tottenham, while Eric Dier, Kieran Trippier and Harry Winks have all improved massively.

Liverpool have also shown a willingness to look towards the youth more recently, but Klopp’s side don’t have the same track record of success as Tottenham.

And if Spurs do enter the running for Gibbs-White, they may just hold the upper hand, as a result.
