The Athletic, as quoted by the Mail, is reporting that the Premier League duo are looking at Grimsby midfielder Boyd after his impressive start to the season.

The same article states that Chelsea FC and Liverpool FC were alerted to Boyd after he came the club’s youngest-ever debutant at the age of 15 years and 324 days old.

According to the same story, Boyd’s team-mate Grist is also being tracked by the Premier League duo after he was brought into the first-team fray by Ian Holloway.

The report goes on to add that Grimsby are under financial pressure due to the Coronavirus pandemic and the League Two side could be forced to sell the duo.
