Here is your Liverpool morning digest for Friday, October 7.


Liverpool won ‘battle’ for academy star after Everton and Man United offers


Representing Liverpool Football Club is a lifelong ambition of many players.


For many, this journey begins within the Reds’ Academy system as they progress up the age categories to Jurgen Klopp’s first team. It is a path the likes of Curtis Jones and Trent Alexander-Arnold have each followed in recent years, serving as inspiration for the next generation.


One individual currently at the Academy and representing the under-18s is Jayden Danns, who is the son of professional footballer Neil. Danns Snr. spent time in Liverpool’s youth system himself before taking the decision to exit at the age of 16.


His son, now the same age as he was upon leaving Liverpool and capable of operating in midfield and attack, will now look to continue his rise through the ranks having joined the club at the age of eight.


Not without good reason has Dominic Corness long been regarded as “The Wand” at Liverpool’s Academy.

The 19-year-old’s left foot once again helped swing the Reds towards victory as they maintained their 100% start to their UEFA Youth League campaign on Tuesday afternoon.


Corness saw a wicked first-half corner headed on by Jarell Quansah for Oakley Cannonier to score the opener before another such delivery was met after the break by Quansah for Liverpool’s third in their 4-1 romp against Rangers at Kirkby.


The midfielder, who has been at the Academy since the age of five, has become an influential figure this season for both the under-21 and U19 sides under coach Barry Lewtas, who handed Corness the captain’s armband for the recent Youth League triumph over Ajax and Papa John’s Trophy defeat at Rochdale.
