According to separate reports from The Mirror, Norwich City duo Jamal Lewis and Todd Cantwell have been monitored by Liverpool as potential transfer targets in the summer window.
Both home-grown players are 22 and have very bright and promising futures ahead of them. Before the global pandemic and with Norwich’s Premier League status, there was no reason that Norwich City couldn’t command ambitious price tags for two of the countries best upcoming talents.
In the full-back department, Jamal Lewis is at an age that means if he develops further, Liverpool would make a potentially significnt return on their investment further down the line and he would certainly serve as good quality cover at left-back for current first choice Andy Robertson.
Liverpool still do not have sufficient cover for the Scotsman and a number of players who are not accustomed to that position such as James Milner and Neco Williams have had to cover in recent times if ever Robertson was unavailable.
Profile-wise, Lewis has been far less attacking than Robertson this season under Daniel Farke, who employs his full-backs in a more defensive manner compared with Liverpool.
Todd Cantwell meanwhile, would represent a good replacement for Adam Lallana who will depart the club at the end of this season. It would also help ease the pressure on youngster Curtis Jones who has been already deemed as the Lallana’s natural replacement.
While there is limited hard evidence of Liverpool showcasing an interest in the two players other than the Mirror press reports, history has repeatedly shown that they are more than accustomed to keeping an eye on the players of relegated clubs.
