Moses Odjer admits he is flattered to be linked with a move to Liverpool.

The Ghanaian youth international has been earning rave reviews at the U20 World Cup this summer, with scouts in Turkey highlighting the midfielder as a potential star of the future.

Indeed, Sky Sports reports that Porto and Benfica have received glowing reviews, whilst the player has also caught the eye of Premier League champions Manchester United.

Liverpool are the latest teams on the list of admirers, according to the website, and whilst the 16-year-old was unaware of the Reds’ potential pursuit, he was happy to admit such speculation is a ‘dream’.

"To be honest, I am not aware of the interest from Liverpool. I know that clubs such as Porto and Benfica are here and I have good reports from them,” said the Tema Youth starlet.

"Liverpool are a mighty club so to be linked with them is a fantastic feeling. It is like a dream.

"But the reality for me at the moment is to play against France and to try and qualify my country for the final."

Brendan Rodgers has been happy to give youth a chance since taking over at Anfield, and whilst Odjer would be unlikely to feature in the first team immediately, he’d be a signing for the future on Merseyside.

The same could be said of Manchester United, with old boss Sir Alex Ferguson constantly turning to the club’s famed academy.

Odjer would join the teenagers at Old Trafford, and were the Red Devils to win the race for the player, it would be a major transfer coup for David Moyes.
