Reds line up Derby County midfielder as long-term Steven Gerrard replacement…
Liverpool have been told by Derby County that young midfield target Will Hughes will set them back £15m, reports the Mirror.
The Rams will also insist on Hughes being immediately sent back to Pride Park on a season long loan, too.
Hughes has already racked up over 50 first-team appearances with the Championship club, and has quickly established himself as a regular starter. His first-touch is outstanding, and the teenager can play intricate through-balls. Hughes fits the attributes that Rodgers likes in a midfielder, as he is capable of playing quick passes in a slick, dynamic footballing side.
With club captain Steven Gerrard 33-years-old, Rodgers could be looking at the Derby wonderkid is a long-term replacement, but a £15m seems very steep, and the Reds are unlikely to pay that amount.
Derby boss Nigel Clough has admitted that Hughes could leave before the end of the month.
“There is interest but at the moment nothing is happening with Will,” said Clough.
“But at the end of the transfer window anything can happen.”
The Reds have sold Jonjo Shelvey this summer to Swansea, so perhaps have room for another talented young midfielder in the squad.
