Liverpool are set to hand 15-year-old Swedish schoolboy Gustav Engvall a trial at the club.

The midfielder confirmed that he's set for the Anfield opportunity pre-Christmas, and is excited to make the trip from Färjestadens GOIF in Swedish 3rd division.

"I'm going over there and will train with them in December," he said on the trial with Liverpool.

"It will be great to see how everything works at a big club and it will be a really good experience whatever happens."

Kenny Dalglish's coaching staff will take the opportunity to run-the-rule over the teenager, with opportunities for competitive action in the Liverpool academy sides at Melwood.

The Reds are no strangers to taking youngsters on trial, with Chinese youngsters Lung Chan, 16, and Chen Nal, 15, spending time on Merseyside as Liverpool look to expand into the growing Asian market.

Engvall's chance at Liverpool is based on talent alone though, and the Swede will be aspiring to follow in the footsteps of Steven Gerrard, Charlie Adam & Co at Anfield.
