Liverpool still in the hunt for impressive and versatile Championship starlet

Liverpool are still interested in signing Leeds United's Archie Gray as the youngster continues to impress in the Championship.

The versatile midfielder, who has regularly played at right-back, has been attracting interest from England's elite after some dazzling performances in the second tier.

The 17-year-old has made 33 appearances in all competitions this season and could be tempted by a move to the Premier League in the summer, albeit he could still earn promotion with boyhood club Leeds this campaign.

Liverpool have been linked with Archie Gray for some time, with the teenager potentially costing between £40-50m.

While reports have died down in recent months, HITC report that Liverpool still have a strong interest in Gray alongside Premier League rivals Manchester City and Newcastle United.

However, Gray has recently claimed that he has not intention of leaving Leeds, stating: "I’m a Leeds fan. There’s nowhere else I want to be, I wasn’t thinking about anywhere else [in January].

"I just want to play here and enjoy my time here and try to help us get back to where we belong."

Gray's situation heading into the summer is likely to depend on whether or not the Whites can earn promotion back to the Premier League at first time of asking.

While Leicester City seem to have sewn up top spot already, Leeds currently sit third and just a point off second-placed Southampton. Even if they don't secure automatic promotion, Daniel Farke's side could still return to the top flight via the play-offs.

HITC report that Liverpool are keen on Harry Gray, brother of Archie, who also plays for Leeds.

The 15-year-old plays as a striker and has already represented England at youth level, as well as netting three in as many appearances in the U18 Premier League.
