Liverpool have joined the race for Milton Keynes Dons starlet Seyi Ojo, despite Chelsea having reportedly agreed a deal for the 14-year-old, according to the Daily Mail.
The Blues had reportedly agreed a world-record fee of £2 million for Ojo, which would be the highest fee for a 14-year-old.
However, it now appears that Liverpool are ready to join the bidding, with Chelsea fretting over whether their deal can be completed.
Ojo has already made his debut for the England Under 16s, showings that have been reportedly watched by Chelsea, sparking a bid from the west-Londoners.
However, Liverpool policy of signing young English players appears no sign of letting up.
Having already bid £2 million for the player, Liverpool are looking to outbid Chelsea for the teen, whose development they believes would flourish at Anfield.
