Liverpool are plotting an approach for wonderkid Richairo Zivkovic who has been dubbed the 'new Arjen Robben'.

The 16-year-old plays for Dutch outfit Groningen, who current Liverpool striker Luis Suarez previously played for.

According to the Daily Express, Zivkovic is being monitored by Liverpool scouts and the big clubs in the Eredivisie also have a close eye, but the Anfield club are looking particularly close to landing the youngster.

The Serb made his debut last December, becoming the youngest player to ever feature for the club's senior squad in their history.

Zivkovic holds a Dutch nationality and is eligible to play for the Netherlands, but remains to posses his Serbian ethnicity, until otherwise.

The wonderkid has been called the next Robben, a player who can replicate the Dutch winger's abilities and incredible talents. The Champions League winner has little comparisons with other players, especially youngsters.

Zivkovic could be a surprise talent for Liverpool if the Premier League club were to pick up the youngster, but anyone shouldn't expect the Serb to go straight into Liverpool's first team squad despite first team experience at current club Groningen.

Groningen president spoke to paper Blic saying: "All the big clubs in the Netherlands are interested in him but Liverpool scouts are particularly active. They are constantly watching us."

Liverpool shouldn't feel comfortable that they have won the war to sign the 16-year-old. Zivkovic is extremely young and would consider moving abroad. His age could see him move to a club in the same country as his current club, oppose to coming to England.
