Liverpool are reportedly chasing Danish wonder-kid Lucas Andersen, but will have to fight off other European clubs.
Danish newspaper Jydske Vestkysten are reporting that that the 17-year-old has attracted the attention of the Anfield club since becoming the youngest ever debutant for Danish Superliga side Aalborg BK.
Liverpool’s new owners have a policy of snapping up talented youngsters and Andersen could be the latest addition to Kenny Dalglish’s squad.
Aab’s sporting director has confirmed there has been interest in the highly rated midfielder, but was coy when asked about the identity of the clubs.
“I won’t comment on the club names, but I can tell you that there is great interest in him,” said Lynge Jakobsen.
“We have no concrete negotiations with anyone about him, but I get constant emails and phone calls from people who represent big clubs who want to hear about our plans with him.
“We would like to sell Lucas and earn some money. But the time must be right for him and it must be the right club where he can continue his development.
“My impression is that there are none who are busy and we're just flattered that we have developed a player who creates so much interest.”
The other clubs chasing Andersen are thought to be Dutch giants Ajax and Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund.
