Leeds United are allegedly in a good position with regards to edging out Chelsea and Liverpool for Linfield youngster Charlie Allen.

Leeds United have reportedly emerged as the most likely destination for Linfield youngster Charlie Allen.

The teenager made his senior debut for the Northern Irish side at the age of 15, resulting in the now-16-year-old attracting regular attention from clubs in England and Scotland.

Chelsea, Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City are all said to be among the interested parties, while Rangers allegedly have ambitions to take the prospect to Glasgow.

However, according to the Yorkshire Evening Post, Leeds are at the front of the queue for the prospect, whose manager is former striker David Healy.

Although the Championship leaders are confident of winning the race for Allen's signature, the report adds that no deal is imminent due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Playing in midfield or in attack, Allen has already made one start and six substitute outings for Linfield.
