LIVERPOOL’S youngsters can certainly draw a crowd – as a staggering 32 clubs watched their game last week.
Young midfielder Elijah Dixon-Bonner is being tracked by several sides, with Brentford sending a top scout to check on his progress.
French centre-back Billy Koumetio,18, may be in line for a loan move in January and several Championship sides are summing him up.
Left-back Tony Gallagher was looked at by a couple of Scottish clubs after a move to Sunderland fell through.
Blackpool boss Neil Critchley, the team’s old coach, and Plymouth’s Scouse manager Ryan Lowe were among the busy VIP list.
All three academy stars started in the Premier League 2 victory over Derby on Saturday.
Koumetio equalised for the Merseyside outfit in the second half after Derby ace Jack Sretton broke the deadlock in the 33rd minute.
Max Woltman then put Liverpool ahead in the 63rd minute, before Dixon-Bonner secured the win late on.

He said: “Great to score another goal today!
“On top of a good win.”
Liverpool sit ninth in Premier League 2 having picked up 12 points from their opening 10 games.
