Liverpool ‘monitoring’ Grimsby Town duo
Liverpool are reportedly among the top-flight teams closely monitoring Grimsby Town prospects Louis Boyd and Ben Grist.
Boyd became the League Two club’s youngest-ever debutant and goalscorer when he netted against Harrogate Town in the EFL Trophy on September 8. He was 15 years and 324 days old.
Meanwhile, Grist was an unused substitute in the same game.
Grimsby manager Ian Holloway then handed Boyd his league debut with 20 minutes off the bench in the 1-0 defeat at Walsall on September 12.
According to, they have caught the eye of a number of leading Premier League teams.
They say Grimsby’s current financial concerns amid the Covid-19 pandemic – the club estimates a £700,000 loss this season – could force them to sell two of their prized academy graduates.
However, any move would not happen before January at the earliest.
