Liverpool could reportedly offer James Milner as part of a deal to sign youngster Jack Clarke from Leeds.

According to TEAMtalk, the Reds are ready to step up their interest in the Leeds star.

Milner has been heavily linked with a move back to Elland Road should the club go on to secure promotion to the Premier League.

Liverpool could look to use Leeds’ interest in Milner to win the race to sign Clarke, with a number of clubs interested in the young winger.

The report claims Milner is out of contract in 2020 but could be offered a romantic return to his former club.
