Fowler backing Liverpool move for Aston Villa striker Watkins

Liverpool great Robbie Fowler admits he's a fan of Ollie Watkins.

Fowler can see Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp moving for the Aston Villa striker.

Fowler told The Athletic: "I like Ollie Watkins at Villa.

"When you start delving into how Liverpool play and how they press, his stats are perfect.

"He scores goals and his work rate is spot on. He looks like a Klopp player to me.

"Of course Villa wouldn't want to lose him and he wouldn't come cheap but he's done very well since arriving from Brentford.

"A lot of big clubs didn't take a chance on him but he's made that leap from the Championship to the Premier League and has proved he belongs there."
