Liverpool planning ahead: Interest in ‘next Paul Pogba’ reported

Liverpool are planning for the future and have been credited with interest in the ‘next Paul Pogba’ as a result.

The Metro have reported that Arsenal and Manchester United both want 17-year-old Eduardo Camavinga, who has played 2,783 minutes for Stade Rennais this season.

Spanish outlet Sport wrote that the Gunners were in for the starlet last summer, but he chose to remain in Ligue 1 and being his promising career. That has opened the door for Liverpool to swoop for the highly promising teen.

25 league appearances, four Europa League appearances and five French cup games later the player is worth £37 million – according to Transfermarkt.

With so much football under his belt already, it’s difficult to understand that Eduardo Camavinga is so young. Much like Harvey Elliot, he seems to exist within a man’s body already and is thriving in a difficult adult environment.

Liverpool never stay still with their recruitment and are always looking for the next player who could be worth £100 million – instead of buying someone worth that much.

We’ve seen it time and time again. Andy Robertson, Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino, Virgil van Dijk, Alisson. This is a club who prioritize development over anything else and it’s been seriously successful.

If you were Camavinga, where would you go? Mikel Arteta is an unknown quantity as a manager, but Jurgen Klopp has that stardust about him. The German has a proven track record of giving youngsters games and making them better players.

As for Manchester United, why would you want to go there!?

Add to that the club’s record in domestic and European football and you have a winning combination.
