Liverpool have told Bobby Duncan to leave the club today as they have dears about his impact on the dressing room at Anfield.
The 18-year-old is hopeful of a deal to Fiorentina in Italy.
And Football Insider claim Duncan has been told he is not wanted at Anfield because of fears over his attitude.
Any deal would have to move fast though with the Italian transfer window closing at 9pm.
Duncan reportedly pulled out of an Under-23 match with Southampton last week in order to force through a move to Fiorentina.
His agent, Saif Rubie, accused Liverpool keeping the youngster at the club against his will and “mentally bullying” by not letting him leave.
Liverpool denied the accusations as they tired to diffuse the tension between the player, agent and club.
Duncan has been at the Reds for just over a year after joining from Manchester City for around £200,000.
The teenager is also the cousin of Liverpool icon Steven Gerrard.
Duncan scored 23 times in 26 games for Liverpool Under-18s last season.
He also became the first England player to ever score a hat-trick against Brazil at any level.
That was two summers ago in an England Under-16 international match.
Liverpool have reportedly agreed to sell Duncan to Fiorentina for a fee of £1.8million with a 20 per cent sell-on clause according to BBC Sport.
Liverpool’s statement on Duncan and comments made by his agent read: “Liverpool Football Club is aware of and disappointed by the unattributed comments and unfounded allegations that have been made in the media regarding one of our players.
“As the interests of the player in question are not best served by either inaccurate speculation, inflammatory statements or public discourse, we will be making no further comment.
“We will, however, continue our efforts to work privately with the player to find resolution in the best interests of all involved.”
Liverpool return to action after the international break on Saturday, September 14 against Newcastle (12.30pm).
