Leeds United full-back Charlie Taylor wants a transfer to Premier League Liverpool in the summer, according to the Yorkshire Evening Post.
The report states that sources close to the player think a move to the Merseysiders could well be on the cards when his contract expires at the end of June.

If Taylor does move on, the purchasing club would have to pay Leeds a compensation fee due to the player’s age.
A switch from Elland Road to Anfield would seem to make sense for the 23-year-old, who is currently on his way back to full fitness having not featured for the Whites since mid-December.
Liverpool have been playing midfielder James Milner at left-back for the majority of the season in place of the error-prone Alberto Moreno, but manager Jurgen Klopp will surely be looking for a specialist in the position when the time comes to reinforce his squad in the transfer window.
Taylor’s ability to roam up and down the flank makes him ideally suited to the German’s preferred high-intensity, pressing style of play.
And whilst Milner has performed well in the role so far this term, having a left-footer in that area of the pitch would give the team a more natural width and balance well with the similarly attack-minded Nathaniel Clyne on the right.
