Both Liverpool and Chelsea are tracking the progress of Bournemouth midfielder Lewis Cook.
The 22 year old has represented England at various levels, and made his full international debut for The Three Lions as a substitute against Italy in a friendly last year, a few months after he captained the under-21 side to success in the Toulon tournament.
Cook recently returned to first-team action after being sidelined since December since suffering knee ligament damage, and is under contract at Bournemouth until 2022, having joined the South Coast side for an undisclosed fee from Leeds United three years ago.
He has been compared, in terms of style, to Liverpool skipper Jordan Henderson, and finds himself in demand because of his high energy, range of passing, and leadership abilities.
Now, if he is able to prove his fitness this season, he could find himself the subject of a bidding war next summer between two of the Premier League’s biggest clubs.
