Liverpool are interested in 18-year-old Leeds United star Archie Gray

Liverpool are considering a summer move for Leeds United midfielder Archie Gray, according to reports.

Leeds suffered a heavy blow at Wembley on Sunday as they lost 1-0 to Southampton to miss out on promotion to the Premier League, despite finishing the season in third place with 90 points.

Due to missing out on promotion it is believed that the Whites will have to sell a number of key players this summer, with Gray winger Crysencio Summerville the most likely to leave.

Liverpool are interested in Gray

Gray was the standout player in Daniel Farke’s team last season, and was named Young Player of the Season.

The 18-year-old is a midfielder, but can also play at right-back, and scored on his debut for England Under-21s earlier this year.

Gray, a Leeds academy product, made 52 appearances in all competitions last season, with 44 of those coming in the Championship.

Gray is attracting interest in the Premier League and abroad.

Leeds will be keen to hold on, but missing out on promotion means they could be forced to sell.

HITC reports that Liverpool, as well as other Premier League clubs Arsenal, Manchester United and Manchester City are all interested in the youngster, who is considered one of the best young players in English football.

Gray only signed a new contract in January that could run until 2028, but despite that interest is high in the youngster, with the report adding that German giants Bayern Munich are also planning a move for the Leeds star.

New Liverpool manager Arne Slot will be keen to strengthen his squad, and with Thiago’s departure there could be space for Gray in midfield alongside the likes of Endo, Ryan Gravenberch and Curtis Jones.

The midfielder is believed to be valued at £51m, given his age and how much better he could get would prove to be a bargain in the current market.
