Huddersfield want to sign Liverpool left-back James Norris after failed deadline day move - Alan Nixon

Huddersfield Town are still interested in signing Liverpool left-back James Norris, according to Sun journalist Alan Nixon.

The 19-year-old has been highly-rated in the football community and was wanted by the Terriers in the recently concluded transfer window as well but failed in a deadline-day move.

However, as per Nixon’s report on Patreon on Sunday (4 September), Norris impressed while training with the U21s side which led to the Reds opting not to let the player leave.

One for the future

Liverpool are slowly but surely becoming the powerhouse they once were under the leadership of Jurgen Klopp who has transformed the club from a life of mediocrity.

Under his management, the Reds went on to win their first league title in decades whereas they also won the UEFA Champions League and finished twice as the runners-up in the same competition.

One of the core reasons why the Reds are becoming a team to beat in England as well as in Europe is the policy the club opted in the transfer market where they opted to invest in players who have a higher ceiling.

Norris is that one talent and therefore, it is important that the management must keep the player and turn him into a possible replacement for Andy Roberts in the future.

In the ongoing campaign, the England U19 international has represented the Liverpool U23s in six matches across all competitions where he has managed to provide an assist [Transfermarkt].

In other Chelsea news, the club agreed to let Callum Hudson-Odoi leave on loan during the window.
