Liverpool & Man City to go head-to-head for French starlet

Published Add your comment

Liverpool and Manchester City could be embroiled in a summer transfer tussle as both sides are keen on signing Hellas Verona midfielder Mohamed Fares, according to talkSPORT.

The Premier League duo have sent scouts to Italy to watch Fares in action in a youth football tournament for Hellas Verona over the last couple of weeks and are planning on following up their interest in the summer.

Fares, who is of Algerian descent, starred in Hellas Verona's impressive 10-2 win against L.I.A.C. New York at the beginning of the week.

The Frenchman set up one of Hellas Verona's 10 goals and is said to have impressed representatives from both clubs.

Liverpool and Manchester City will want to try and conclude a quick deal for 17-year-old Fares, before Europe's top clubs hear of the aforementioned sides' interest in the teenager.

The Reds were said to be interested in signing Fares' former teammate Jorginho in January - but missed out on signing the 22-year-old to Napoli.
