Liverpool has identified their left-back target in the shape of young Northern Irishman, Jamal Lewis. Not long after naming the player as the proposed backup for world-star fullback, Andrew Robertson, the Anfield club didn’t waste time in tabling their opening bid.

An offer of £10 million was put forward to Norwich City, which was rejected without a second thought. The now relegated and Championship side is demanding a higher fee for one of their 2019-2020 breakout players.

Clubs want their money on the receiving end while Liverpool is unwilling to pay more money for a player who will be used as a backup in the near future. At 22-years-old, this would be the perfect move for Jamal to revive his football career after recently getting relegated with his club.
