Liverpool have emerged as potential suitors for Nottingham Forest star Djed Spence and they could make a bid in the summer.
According to the Northern Echo, Arsenal and Tottenham remain keen on the right-back and could move ahead of next season.
The Reds provide a really attractive proposition, however. They are firmly in the title race with Manchester City and thrashed Leeds 6-0 last night.
Liverpool will certainly be in the Champions League next year and Spence would surely welcome a move.
Middlesbrough will decide in the summer whether or not to sell the 21-year-old who will have one year to run on his contract.
Boro have Isaiah Jones playing out of his skin at right wing-back and he is also attracting interest from top European clubs.
It seems likely that Chris Wilder will want to keep one of his two right-sided options.
Given that Jones is enjoying his time at the Riverside Stadium, Boro could look to sell Spence instead when the transfer window reopens.
The youngster has been a revelation for Forest this season. He has made 27 appearances, scoring twice and claiming two assists.
After Forest knocked Arsenal out of the FA Cup, he earned praise from Ian Wright.
He called him ‘unbelievable’ on Wrighty’s House Podcast and naturally, he’d welcome him at Arsenal.
Forest man Spence would surely welcome Liverpool move
Any player would dearly love to work for Liverpool and under manager Jurgen Klopp.
It would seem unlikely that Spence would play much, however, with Trent Alexander-Arnold one of the best right-backs in the world.
The chance to learn from the England man would surely be something that Spence would welcome.

He’s enjoyed a great season with Forest and perhaps there are certain things he could brush up on to go to the next level.
Spence would only be back up at Anfield but with Liverpool set to be in four competitions next season, he will get plenty of opportunities to play games.
Moving to Liverpool would seriously highlight the work that Forest have done to revive Spence’s career.
