Omri Altman has joined Liverpool on trial from Maccabi Tel Aviv. The 16-year-old attacking midfielder is hoping to impress Roy Hodgson while on loan to make the move permanent.

The U17 Israeli international is hoping to follow in the footsteps of other Israeli nationals: Avi Cohen, Ronny Rosenthal, Eyal Berkovic and Yossi Benayoun; who have all featured at Anfield.

Current Israel U17 coach and former Watford midfielder Alan Hazan spoke to reporters about how Altman's trial with Liverpool did not come as a surprise to him: “It doesn’t surprise me in the slightest that he has been invited to a club like Liverpool."

Justifying the statement by explaining the potential future Anfield star "has all the elements you look for in a player at the highest levels. He has physical fitness, excellent technical ability, and the ability to combine the defensive and attacking sides to his iumgame intelligently."

"If Omri moves to Liverpool today I can say with absolute certainty that at 21 or 22 he will be a super important player at the club. The club will install in him virtues of the highest level.” finished of Hazan
