According to The Daily Mail, Liverpool and Chelsea are interested in signing Bournemouth midfielder Lewis Cook.

It has been reported that Premier League giants Liverpool and Chelsea have identified the former Leeds United star as a transfer target.

The report has suggested that a move from the Reds and the Blues is dependent on his fitness and form this season.

“Both Liverpool and Chelsea are said to be in the market for the best of emerging English talent and Cook’s high energy style in the middle of the park is thought to be the attraction,” adds the report.

 

Promising talent

Cook is a very talented and promising young midfielder who has been unlucky with injury problems during his time at Bournemouth.

However, the 22-year-old - who is valued at €30 million (£25.8m) by the CIES Football Observatory - showed during his time at Leeds what he is capable of in the middle of the park, and the England international has also done well in the games he has played for Bournemouth.

According to WhoScored, the English youngster has played 91 minuets in the Premier League for Bournemouth so far this season, while in 2018-19, he made eight starts and five substitute appearances in the league for the Cherries.
