Anfield youngster Matuesz Musialowski has been the subject of interest from Championship sides including Leeds United and Birmingham City.
Leeds boss Daniel Farke wants the Polish forward and the midlands club have reportedly ‘made checks’ on the player.
Meanwhile Tony Mowbray, who has taken the Birmingham City hotseat after Wayne Rooney was dismissed, likewise sees Musialowksi has a talent he wants in his side.
Birmingham City have endured a difficult season so far, already on their third manager of the campaign after John Eustace and Wayne Rooney were sacked.
Since the Blues are among the teams with the lowest scoring totals in the Championship this year, Mowbray needs offensive reinforcements.
Now former Aston Villa and Tottenham Hotspur defender Alan Hutton has backed the Polish forward to make an impact at Leeds United, should he opt for the move.
What was said about Musialowski moving away from Anfield?
Speaking to Football Insider, Hutton believes that the 20-year-old should cut his losses at Anfield and make the step up to the men’s game:
“He’s playing for Liverpool, so he’s obviously got something about him,” Hutton began.
“He’s not playing first-team football, but he’s really versatile, he can play across the front and his numbers for the youth ranks are exceptional.”
“There’s an opportunity for him to take if he goes to Leeds.”
“You’re giving him a platform to show us what he’s capable of.”
“He has bags of potential, so a team like Leeds that are flying high and have lots of young talent playing there, it gives you that freedom.”
“That’s the opportunity he needs and that he’ll be looking for.”
“This could be a fantastic move for him and I think he’d do well at Leeds.”
Musialowksi is yet to make his senior debut for Liverpool, despite his obviously high ceiling.
For Barry Lewtas’ U21 side, he has impressed with six goals and two assists in 11 games across all competitions this term.
Musialowksi should leave Liverpool
The 20-year-old has played in 80 games for Liverpool’s youth teams, contributing six assists and 30 goals in a range of offensive positions.
But in all that time, he as not managed to pique Klopp’s interest enough to hand him a debut.
Infact, the Pole was close to bidding farewell to Merseyside last summer.
He was poised to go to Austrian side TSV Hartberg amid frustrations over not breaking into the first team.
But the inclusion of a sell-on clause for the young player caused the two teams’ discussions to collapse.
The player’s contract expires at the end of the season, which suggests Liverpool may want to recoup whatever they can with the alternative being him leaving on a free transfer.
