Brighton & Hove Albion starlet Shamir Goodwin has emerged as a transfer target for Liverpool.

The 17-year-old striker has come to the attention of the Barclays Premier League outfit after some fine form for the Seagulls youth team, according to The Daily Star, with the Reds now reportedly considering a move for the player.

Goodwin has struck 14 goals in 15 appearances for the academy side at the Amex Stadium, and Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish is now looking at the player as a potential addition to the Merseyside outfit's own setup at Melwood.

Jordon Ibe is the most recent high-profile purchase at the Anfield academy, with Liverpool agreeing a fee with Wycombe which could reportedly rise to £1 million for the young Englishman.

He joined former MK Dons starlet Seyi Ojo in making a move to Liverpool, with the 14-year-old completing his move in November.

Regarded as one of the best youth setups in the country, the Reds have a track record of bringing players into the senior fold, with Jack Robinson and John Flanagan two recent graduates.

Currently boasting England youth internationals Connor Coady and Raheem Sterling, as well as Spanish starlet Suso, the future appears very bright for Liverpool as Dalglish and Damien Comolli build for the future.
