According to a recent report by the Daily Mail, Liverpool youngster Bobby Duncan has attracted the attention of Bundesliga clubs, Bayern Munich and RB Leipzig, who are both reportedly monitoring the centre-forward’s progress at Anfield. The English prospect made a switch to Liverpool from Manchester City in the summer and had enjoyed a fantastic start to life at Merseyside.
Duncan, who is the cousin of Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard, has already put in some eye-catching displays for the club’s academy this season which has not gone unnoticed by other foreign teams. The 17-year-old has scored seven goals while creating three assists in 9 appearances in the Under-18 Premier League.
Bobby Duncan: Brief History
The 17-year-old started off his playing career at Wigan Athletic before moving on to play in the Manchester City academy back in 2011. He spent six years at the blue half of Manchester before his switch to Anfield. Duncan has a knack for scoring goals as evidenced by his remarkable record for the England Under-17 side for whom he has featured in 15 matches, scoring five goals in the process.
Another English Prospect Moving To The Bundesliga?
The English starlet still has a long way to go before he is ready to play first-team football on a weekly basis. However, a move to Germany could see him get some valuable minutes on the pitch while playing in one of the most highly contested leagues in the world.
If the Liverpool wonderkid does end up making a switch to Germany, then he would follow in the footsteps of Jadon Sancho and Reiss Nelson who have both left their respective clubs on a temporary basis to have a successful spell in the Bundesliga.
Should The Reds Let Him Leave?
The Whiston born talent could be considered as one of the brightest young stars in English football, so if the opportunity presents itself for him to move to Germany and experience some first-team football, then he should not reject it by any means.
Liverpool should not stand in his way if a loan offer comes in for Duncan as he could return as a much better version of himself if he manages to have a successful spell in the Bundesliga. However, in all honesty, we are a little sceptical about how much first-team action he would really see at a club like Bayern Munich.
