Jamaica have confirmed their interest in capping the teen.
"There's no doubt he's been one of Liverpool's bright sparks," Walters told talkSPORT. "There could be an undercurrent with his call-up though.
"Jamaica are very hot on him at the moment and maybe that's one of the reasons why he's been called up a little bit early.
"Jamaica want him to play for them so maybe England just want to get him tied up so he's ineligible for anyone else."
