Liverpool tracking Hull City left-back Josh Tymon - sources

Liverpool have joined the list of clubs tracking Hull City teenager Josh Tymon, sources close to the Merseyside club have told ESPN FC.

Tymon, 17, broke into the Hull side last season, making his debut in the FA Cup fourth-round win over Bury at the age of 16, while he also started the fifth-round clash against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium as Hull drew 0-0.

His performance against Arsenal alerted Arsene Wenger, who has been keeping tabs on his progress ever since, while Tottenham Hotspur and Everton are also admirers of the England under-17 international.

Tymon has started two games for Hull this season in the EFL Cup and sources have told ESPN FC that scouts from Liverpool watched the left-back in action in last week's 2-1 win over Bristol City.

Liverpool are looking to bolster their options at left-back, with James Milner being used in the position so far this season, and they are now actively monitoring Tymon's situation at Hull.

Hull are desperate to keep hold of Tymon but have yet to tie down the teenager to a professional contract.
