However, the Zambian news source have reported that Liverpool are the prime favourites to sign the African goalscorer.
In the last campaign, the youngster did make a couple of appearances against the Merseysiders in the Champions League (78 minutes) but was unable to find the net.

Situation at Anfield
Liverpool mainly utilize Firmino in the False No.9 and Divock Origi mostly played as a winger last season. Therefore, Klopp needs to sign an out and out forward to strengthen the strike-force.
We were interested in signing Timo Werner but he was expensive and Chelsea opted to lure him (ESPN). In your view, should the PL champions move to sign Patson Daka if the price is right?
Not to forget, we were able to sign Takumi Minamino from RB Salzburg in the winter for just £7.25million (Sky Sports).
