Liverpool and Real Madrid have sent scouts to watch 15-year-old Norwegian sensation Martin Ødegaard in action.
The talented youngster is thought of as one of the brightest young prospects in European football, and could even make his international debut against the United Arab Emirates this month or against England at Wembley next month. Indeed he is so highly rated that he's even been dubbed the 'new Lionel Messi'.
Manchester United have been watching him recently, as have Bayern Munich but it seems as though some more European giants have entered the race.
Danish newspaper Verdens Gang are reporting that both Liverpool and Real Madrid have sent scouts to watch him in action ahead of a potential swoop.
They saw him play for his team Stromsgodset this weekend against Stabæk, a game which they lost 3-2. Ødegaard played the full 90 minutes.
News of Liverpool's interest is likely to irk Manchester United, although both sides have more pressing concerns as things stand.
With around a week of the transfer window remaining both Liverpool and Manchester United will look to bring in some fresh blood, with the Red Devils reportedly close to breaking their own transfer record for Real Madrid winger Angel di Maria.
Liverpool meanwhile have already signed no less than eight players, and that could rise to nine shortly with Mario Balotelli expected to arrive at Anfield.
