Liverpool are always on the lookout for a bargain, particularly one which could make the club some profit in the years to come. There have been links between the Reds and one of the Championship’s brightest youngsters. According to The Mail, Liverpool target Kaide Gordon is valued at £1m by Derby County.
Who is Kaide Gordon?
16-year-old utility forward Kaide Gordon recently became Derby County’s fourth youngest player ever.
The teenager was brought on as a substitute by Wayne Rooney in his side’s 4-0 win over Birmingham City.
He has been impressing the Scouser and has been kept around the first team setup as a result.
In fact, according to Sky Sports, Rooney is so impressed with the teenager that he believes him to be the best 16-year-old in the country.

Liverpool told Kaide Gordon price
Derby are currently in dire straits financially.
The Championship side allegedly failed to fully pay December’s wages and are looking to raise funds.
According to The Mail, the Rams are considering cashing in on their prized youngster as a result.
Liverpool are allegedly interested in Kaide Gordon and the Championship side believe they can get £1m for their wonderkid.
However, the Reds are thought to have a different valuation of the youngster.
What RTK has to say
Liverpool snapping up Kaide Gordon for less than £1m would be an exciting move.
If Wayne Rooney rates him then we can assume he has something about him.
Rooney is one of the original child stars of the Premier League, he must recognise young greatness when he sees it.
We’ll be keeping a close eye on this one, the Reds could bag a bargain.
