According to the Scottish Daily Mail, Liverpool is thinking about making a move to recruit Leeds United sensation Archie Gray, defeating Everton, Crystal Palace, and other teams.

According to the publication, Gray is valued at £40 million by the Championship team, and it would require a substantial investment to entice him to leave Elland Road (print edition, November 14, back page).


Liam Cooper, the captain of Leeds, has stated that he is attempting to persuade the 17-year-old to change his national team’s allegiance from England to Scotland.


A promising young star

Gray has made 17 Championship appearances for the Yorkshire club already and has become a significant part of the first-team setup at Elland Road, attracting interest from Premier League sides who look set now to compete over his future.


The level of the clubs interested in his signature is a testament to his ability and the promise he has shown already in his short professional career after he made his debut in Daniel Farke’s side earlier this season and has quickly made himself a starter.


A £40million price tag shows just how highly Leeds value him, as an academy product from a long family line of Leeds players, and they will hope that the large demand puts interested sides off of a deal. Everton may be one of those unwilling to pay such a high fee.



Given the ongoing financial situation at the club, it is hard to see the Toffees launching a bid of that magnitude to bring him to Goodison Park, and if Liverpool are interested, it may be difficult to convince him regardless.
