Several clubs interested in signing Sheyi Ojo .
Liverpool youngster Sheyi Ojo is attracting the attention of several clubs this summer and could be on his way out of Anfield, according to a report on the Birmingham Mail. The skilful winger hasn’t had many first-team opportunities at Liverpool but Jurgen Klopp knows that he has the talent and ability to become an important player for the club. However, Ojo wants to be playing regular football and Championship sides Aston Villa and Birmingham are battling to secure his signature. Stoke City and Derby County are also monitoring his situation and could make an offer for him. Liverpool are not ready to allow him to leave on a permanent basis but are happy to let him leave on a season-long loan deal. The 21-year-old spent last season on loan at Fulham and helped them to gain promotion to the Premier League. He has had his fair share of injury problems in recent years and was sidelined last season for almost four months, firstly with a shoulder injury and then a leg injury. He still managed to play 22 times for the London side and got his name on the scoresheet four times.
