Liverpool are ready to raid Athletic Bilbao for their teenage striking sensation Mikel Zaton this summer.
The Anfield club have been monitoring him closely and are reportedly already in talks with Bilbao over signing him, according to talkSPORT.
The 16-year-old is ruthless at youth level with 25 goals in just 28 games and would fit the bill for the Reds' transfer policy under manager Kenny Dalglish of picking up talented youngsters.
The report also claims that La Liga giants Real Madrid and Barcelona are interested in signing the starlet who has been a sensation in the famous Bilbao youth set up.
Zaton has scored five hat-tricks this season and would be the latest of many talented youngsters to emerge from Athletic’s successful academy.
Liverpool have been signing up a number of talented teenagers in the past year, with the likes of Dan Smith, Jordan Ibe and Seyi Ojo joining the club in their mid teens.
