Liverpool, Chelsea eyeing Bournemouth midfielder Lewis Cook

Liverpool and Chelsea are eyeing Bournemouth midfielder Lewis Cook.

The 22-year-old returned to action last month having been sidelined since December with knee-ligament damage.

The Daily Mail says Liverpool and Chelsea have identified the former Leeds star as a target, should he prove his form and fitness this season.

They're both said to be in the market for the best of emerging English talent and Cook's high energy style in the middle of the park is thought to be the attraction.

He has even been likened to Liverpool's Jordan Henderson given his running, passing ability and leadership qualities.
