Liverpool are being linked with a move for rising England starlet Jordan Obita.

The 20-year-old has been earning rave reviews at Reading this season, initially in a more advanced position before slotting in at left-back for the injured Wayne Bridge.

And, it's in this position that the Reds are interested, according to The Sunday People, with scouts keeping an eye on the England U19 international moving towards the end of the season.

Liverpool are on the look out for a new left-back, with Jose Enrique out indefinitely with an injury and Aly Cissokho only on loan at Anfield until the campaign concludes.

Brendan Rodgers has given youngsters a chance on Merseyside since taking the reigns, and it's reaped rewards this season as the Reds challenge for the title.

Whilst Obita might not have experience in the Premier League, he'd be a signing for the future if Liverpool were able to lure him to the club, and his performances appear to have put him on the club's radar.
