Liverpool are reportedly ready to pay £5 million to Wolverhampton Wanderers in order to sign Morgan Gibbs-White, also a target for Tottenham and Arsenal.
According to Tribal Football, Liverpool are ready to step up their efforts in order to beat their adversaries in pursuit of Wolverhampton Wanderers youngster Morgan Gibbs-White. The player is being tailed by Tottenham and Arsenal as well, with all the three Premier League clubs eyeing a deal to land the Wolves starlet.
Morgan Gibbs-White is one of the many young English players with the spotlight shining on them, especially after being a part of the triumphant Under-17 World Cup side. As the Three Lions conquered the Under-17 World Cup in India, several of the players have attracted interest from the top English sides.
Gibbs-White is no exception. Having already made his senior debut for Wolves, who are themselves flying in the Championship right now, sitting pretty atop the league table, the interest in Gibbs-White is more down to his performances for the Under-17 English side, wherein he scored 2 goals in 7 appearances, including the final goal and the winner of the event.

The 17-year-old though, was one among the rare set of youngsters in the squad that did not belong to one of the top-tier clubs. That could all change now, though, with Liverpool, Tottenham and Arsenal all interested in his signature.
Able to operate as an attacking midfielder and as a centre forward with equal aplomb, Gibbs-White has been with Wolves from the age of eight and could be considered by the club as a shining example of their academy, which has been producing good prospects.
Also, due to the same reason, it could be difficult to land the player, with the youngster emotionally attached to Wolves. Liverpool though, are ready to test the resolve of both the player and the club, with the Reds ready to fork out as much as £5 million in order to acquire the 17-year-old.

Contracted to Wolves till 2019, Gibbs-White should be aware, though, that his present club is the fastest track to the first-team available to him, with Liverpool a distant second, ahead of Arsenal and Tottenham – the other suitors for Gibbs-White.
By the looks of it, Wolves are prepared to give Gibbs-White the necessary first-team exposure at the club, which may themselves very well be plying their trade in the Premier League next season. The 17-year-old would be wise to stick to his boyhood club while taking the interest from all these top clubs in his stride as a compliment and validation of his potential.
