Liverpool, Man Utd among mad scramble for Linfield sensation Charlie Allen

Linfield's 15-year-old sensation Charlie Allen is a target for England's biggest clubs.

The Belfast Telegraph says Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Tottenham and Leicester City are amongst the Premier League clubs interested. Championship outfit Leeds United are also keen.

And in a further boost for the gifted teenage midfielder, boss David Healy has named him in Linfield's squad for tomorrow night's Uefa Champions League first qualifying round first leg clash against Rosenborg at Windsor Park.

If Allen features he will break the record for the youngest UK player to ever play in the tournament and become one of the youngest of all time to turn out in club football's most prestigious competition.
