Liverpool have turned down a bid from Fiorentina for teenage prospect Bobby Duncan and have ‘no plans’ to let the striker leave the club.

The Serie A side made an offer to take the 18-year-old on loan for this season, with the option to make the deal permanent for just €1.8million (£1.6m) at the end of the campaign.

The bid, which was submitted to Academy director Alex Inglethorpe was dismissed as Liverpool see Duncan as one of the brightest young talents they have at the club, reports the Liverpool Echo.

Danish side FC Nordsjaelland are also thought to have made a loan bid for the teenager, but the Reds responded issued the same response as to the Italians.

However, Sky Sports reports that Duncan is frustrated by Liverpool’s stance and at least wants the chance to talk to Fiorentina about the loan deal.

The striker is a long way down the first team pecking order at Anfield and is unlikely to get many, if any, opportunities this season, so is keen to at least discuss a move.

Liverpool are said to consider Fiorentina’s opening offer as derisory and it will need to be significantly improved for an agreement to be reached.

Duncan grew up as a Liverpool fan having been born in Whiston and was the top scorer for the club’s under-18 side last season, scoring 32 goals in all competitions.
