Liverpool target Barca wonderkid - 'close ties' could land wing wizard

Published Add your comment

Liverpool are reportedly in the race to sign Barcelona wing wizard Gerard Deulofeu.

The 16-year-old Spanish starlet is attracting interest from across Europe, and Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson is the latest to join the chase for the player.

Real Madrid and Chelsea are also thought to be tracking the teenager, who is yet to sign professional forms at the Nou Camp due to his age.

Spanish radio station RAC-1 reports that Liverpool are tracking the player with a view to a potential January switch, whilst Blues boss Carlo Ancelotti is also monitoring the situation closely.

Player agent Gines Carvajal is believed to have 'close ties' with Liverpool, claims the Live4Liverpool website, and the player will be allowed to decide on his future destination.

The famed Melwood academy has proved to be a breeding ground for some fine young talent over the years, and the current Liverpool youth crop are impressing at U18 and Reserves level.

A skillful winger who is seen as a future star for Spain, Deulofeu would have to be persuaded to leave his homeland and Liverpool stars Fernando Torres and Jose Reina could be used in any negotiations.
