Duncan, who is the cousin of Anfield legend Steven Gerrard, is eager to find a new club amid fears of a lack of first-team action under Jurgen Klopp.

Both Denmark SuperLiga side FC Nordsjælland and Seria A club Fiorentina were reported to have contacted Liverpool over a loan move for the 18-year-old striker who fired in 32 goals at youth level last season.

The Reds have reportedly rejected both loan bids, wanting the youngster to stay put but his agent Saif Rubbie believe the 18-year-old is being treated wrongly by the European Champions.

Rubie took to Twitter to post the following statement: "There has been a lot of things said the last few weeks regarding Bobby Duncan's future at Liverpool.

"For a player with zero first team experience, no clubs were prepared to pay an outright reasonable fee for a player they got for £200,000 last summer.

"With that in mind we have been able to find clubs that were ready to take Bobby on a season-long loan with a option to buy for amounts of £1.5million upwards which is a great return for the club on a player who will never play for the Liverpool first team and who doesn't want to be there.

"So then myself and my team worked even harder and managed to get a deal on the table for a loan with an obligation to buy after five starts with a higher transfer fee than before and a sell-on to Liverpool.

"Putting all of that aside, the real reason Bobby missed the Under 23 game (against Southampton ) on Monday is because he has suffered some deep mental health issues with all the stress the club has put him under.

"Stress of being told he can leave but then going out of their way to force him to stay against his will.

"Not only is he on a very small salary but he also has one season left on his contract after this one and Liverpool have flatly said he will not get a new one.

"Bobby has not left his room for four days because of this and will never go back to Liverpool again and my only concern now is his mental health and well being.

"This is not really dignified behaviour from a club with the rich history of Liverpool and one who one of their greatest ever players Steven Gerrard happens to be Bobby's cousin.

"It's a sad state of affairs that a club such as a Liverpool can be allowed to get away with mentally bullying and destroying the life of a young man such as Bobby.

"I know one thing for sure, and that is he is never going back there again and he's on such a small salary that no amount of fines will even make a difference."
