Chelsea midfielder heads to Liverpool, summer deal eyed up - report

Chelsea midfielder Isaac Christie-Davies has headed to Liverpool for a trial, according to a report.

The Liverpool Echo claims that Christie-Davies, 20, is still contracted at Stamford Bridge but his deal expires at the end of the season and he is now looking for a new club.

The former England Under-17 international is said to have spent time at QPR last month before being handed a chance to impress on Merseyside.

It is understood that Christie-Davies signed a year-long deal with Chelsea last season, but with him looking as though he is nowhere near to earning first-team football in London, he is now trying to earn a new contract at Liverpool.

Christie-Davies won the UEFA Youth League in 2016 with Chelsea and has been a mainstay of their Premier League 2 side this season, making 13 appearances in the Under-23s league.

Christie-Davies does not appear to be someone who could force himself into the first-team at either Liverpool or Chelsea so at his age, he may be best off taking a drop down a division in order to get experience. QPR would have been ideal. Loftus Road is not situated too far from his current base at Chelsea so he will not find it hard to settle down into a move there. The Rs may also give him a better chance of getting some senior action, which is exactly what a 20-year-old needs. Christie-Davies has never been sent out on loan in his career either, which is surprising for a Chelsea youngster.

In other Liverpool news, this £120,000-a-week Reds player has been ruled out of action for a month.
