Tranmere Rovers are eyeing a loan swoop for Liverpool youngster Adam Lewis, according to an exclusive report from Football Insider.
The Prenton Park side got their campaign up and running at the weekend with a 5-0 victory over crisis-club Bolton Wanderers, but head coach Mickey Mellon is keen on adding to his roster as they move towards the transfer market.
The 19-year-old Adam Lewis is a highly-rated left-sided youngster who could be seen as a cover for current Scottish left-back Andy Robertson.
He has represented England up to U20 level and is a valued part of the Liverpool roster.
He’s regular for their U23 side and according to the club’s official website, he regularly trains with the senior team squad at Melwood.
Adam has yet to make his competitive senior-team debut for Liverpool, but the talent played for them in the pre-season campaign.
Tranmere Rovers usually operate a flat 4-4-2 system, with Liam Ridehalgh at left-back and Corey Blackett-Taylor ahead of him this weekend on the wing.
Adam would almost certainly be challenging for one of those positions if the star were to make the switch.
Meantime, Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has reiterated that he remains “happy” with life at Anfield.
He has been a revelation at the Reds since arriving from Serie A club AS Roma in 2017, contributing a total of 72 goals from 108 matches in all competitions.
The 27-year-old Egypt international told CNN: “I’m happy at Liverpool. I’m happy in the city – I love the fans and they love me. I’m happy at the club.”
