Man United and Liverpool reportedly set to battle it out for Leeds United youngster

Manchester United are set to go head-to-head with Liverpool as they try to secure the signature of Leeds midfielder Lewis Cook.

Chelsea and Manchester City are also rumoured to be interested in Cook who, at just 18-years-old, would cost somewhere in the region of £10m.

But clubs are advised to act quickly, with The Daily Star reporting that Bournemouth and Stoke might be willing to make a move for the youngster in January.

The England under-19 international has impressed since breaking into the first team in August 2014 and signed a new contract at the start of this year in order to ward of interest from bigger clubs.

But he has accepted that he is unlikely to reach the Premier League with Leeds any time soon, with a source at Elland Road telling The Daily Star: “He knows he will have to leave Leeds to fulfil his ambitions and he wants to play in the Premier League.”
