Liverpool face losing academy starlet Bobby Duncan due to concerns over his pathway into the first team.
The-17-year-old – who is Steven Gerrard’s cousin – has set the Anfield academy alight since his arrival from Manchester City last summer.
But Duncan is growing deeply concerned about his chances of breaking into Jurgen Klopp‘s senior set up.

Duncan has scored 32 goals for the Reds academy this season, but despite his prolific strike rate the teenager has remained mainly with the Under 18s.
And with academy products Rhian Brewster and Rafa Camacho ahead of Duncan in the pecking order for attacking positions in the first team squad, the youngster is finding it difficult to see a route into Klopp’s plans.
A number of clubs for England and abroad are aware of the issues and will monitor the situation over the summer.
Duncan, it is understood, would consider a move abroad.
