Liverpool 'keep tabs' on strike starlet - Anfield trials confirmed

Published Add your comment

Liverpool are reportedly keeping tabs on striker Marcus Pedersen.

The 20-year-old Norwegian has been impressing in the Eredivisie after joining Vitesse Arnhem in the summer, and tribalfootball claims Liverpool are again monitoring the player.

Pedersen had trials with Liverpool as a teenager, and the Reds have been monitoring his progress ever since. "It was a good experience," the striker recalls.

"I have shaken hands with all the big names, including Steven Gerrard and John Arne Riise. I think I have taken the right step in my career: Norway, then Holland and eventually England."

Newcastle United and West Bromwich Albion have also taken an interest in the former Strømsgodset player, who has been capped internationally at every junior level for his country.

His previous stint with the Merseysiders puts them in pole position to land the player should they wish to make a move though, with the Barclays Premier League the self-confessed next stop.


Despite making two striker additions in the summer, it's thought that the Liverpool boss is keen to add another player in the position as cover.

Pedersen fits the bill of young, attacking talent set out by Liverpool owners NESV, and could go on to become a star of the future at Anfield.
