Bobby Duncan emerges as loan target for Danish outfit as search for first-team action continues

20 August 2019

Liverpool youngster Bobby Duncan has reportedly been subject to an offer for a season-long loan at Danish outfit Nordsjaelland.


The 18-year-old had a prolific debut season for the Reds primarily at under-18 level after joining from Man City, scoring 30 and setting up a further 16 in a total of 43 appearances.

Duncan was duly rewarded in the summer with a place in Jurgen Klopp‘s pre-season squad, where he made five appearances from the bench which returned one goal and an assist.

In the season thus far he has twice featured from the bench for the under-23s in their defeats to Tottenham and Chelsea, the latter of which saw a host “of scouts from across Europe” watch on.

Duncan, however, harbours hopes of playing first-team football which appears a ways off at Anfield with fellow youngster Rhian Brewster ahead of him in the pecking order.

Not to mention he would also be competing against the likes of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Divock Origi.

He is highly-rated at the club and possesses an abundance of raw talent but with a slim window of opportunity in his position, he is said to be open to a move abroad.

According to the Daily Mail, Nordsjaelland are offering regular senior football on a season-long loan deal which would also see them pay his wages in full.

The Danish Superliga side, who are currently fourth in the table after six games, have made a formal move for Duncan, which Liverpool are said to be considering – and is not believed to include an option to buy.

However, conflicting reports from Sky Sports suggest the Reds have already rejected their approach for the teenager who was also subject to interest from Porto and Benfica earlier in the summer.

While the reliability of each report remains to be seen, it is clear that Duncan is demanding a wide array of interest in his services and that up and coming English talent remain firmly on the radar of clubs across Europe.

Duncan is tied to the club until 2021 after penning a three-year deal upon his arrival in 2018, ensuring Liverpool are in a comfortable position if and when they weigh up his immediate future.
