Liverpool and Everton in £10 million battle

20 Sep

Liverpool face competition from Everton in the race to land Derby star Will Hughes.

Liverpool are leading the chase for Hughes, and are expected to make another bid for the 18-year-old in January after targeting him during the summer transfer window.

However, Brendan Rodgers faces a threat from Roberto Martinez for Hughes, with the Everton boss sending two scouts to watch him star for the Rams against Bolton.

Derby earned a 2-2 draw at the Reebok, with Hughes contributing an assist before limping off in the second half.

Hughes has already been compared with Reds captain Steven Gerrard, and Liverpool are keeping a close eye on his progress this season. (Daily Express)

The lad is destined for the Premier League and it will be interesting to see where he ends up
