Liverpool director of football Damien Comolli is returning to his former club in an effort to land coveted teenager Idriss Saadi, according to reports.
The talented French U19 international has been earning rave reviews after an impressive debut season in Ligue 1, leading to a number of clubs across Europe taking an interest in the player.
Comolli, who used to be sports director at Saadi's current club St. Etienne, has been made aware of the player through his contacts in France and is eager to add the striker to the Liverpool ranks.
RMC reports Comolli is 'convinced he can land the player', in a move that would be another transfer coup for the Reds.
Since his arrival at Liverpool, the recently promoted Comolli has helped push through the transfers of Luis Suarez and Andy Carroll and has been working closely alongside Kenny Dalglish in creating a summer wishlist of players.
Dalglish has reportedly earmarked a handful of players in a string of positions, with a left back, central defender, winger and striker thought to be the key positions on the Liverpool legend-come-manager's radar.
Comolli has been on a number of personal scouting trips monitoring a handful of players at home and abroad, and a return to Les Verts is thought to be on the cards as he looks to bring the cream of Europe to Liverpool.
