Laidlaw has attracted interest from several of English football’s big clubs, with some of the Premier League’s top four after him. Liverpool are the latest to state their interest and they’ve made a move for him.

The teenager will head to Merseyside for a trial as he aims to impress those at Liverpool, initially joining the youth set-up at Anfield. Other teams have also been interested in taking him on trial.

Leeds United have already had him on trial while Manchester United wanted him in before the end of the year on a similar basis to what Liverpool have Laidlaw.

 

Chelsea meanwhile are also interested in the Hibs talent. He has made a handful of Jack Ross’ squads towards the end of the 2020/21 Scottish Premiership season, most notably named on the bench in Hibs’ Scottish Cup semi-final win over Dundee United.
