Liverpool legend Steve McManaman says Todd Cantwell is not ready for the club.
The Norwich attacking midfielder, 21, is being targeted by the Reds and Manchester United.
"In the future possibly, but I don't think he's done enough yet to warrant playing at that level," McManaman wrote of Cantwell in his latest column for HorseRacing.net.
"I get the fact that he wants to play at a higher level. I get the fact that he thinks he's playing well in a struggling Norwich team. That's completely understandable.
"Again, we will wait and see. I can only take on face value what I've seen of Todd Cantwell and he's done well in various games.
"Norwich has a lot of really good young players and have done for a number of years so you have to trust what they're doing down at Carrow Road."
