Liverpool have called off a friendly with Borussia Mönchengladbach over the German club’s interest in Rhian Brewster, say Sky sources.
Club officials have also written to Mönchengladbach warning them over their conduct in pursuing the teenager.
The match was due to be played on August 7 at Anfield.
Brewster grabbed the global headlines last October when he secured the Golden Boot when England won the U17 World Cup in India.
In March, UEFA dropped charges against Spartak Moscow over allegations of racist abuse towards the 18-year-old Brewster due to lack of evidence.
Brewster is hugely respected at Liverpool and is currently recovering from a knee ligament injury.
