Belgian club Racing Genk are hoping to strike up a partnership with Liverpool which would enable them to develop Reds youngsters, according to reports.

Genk were interested in signing both Chris Mavinga and Daniel Ayala during the summer transfer window but neither deal materialised.

Ayala has since moved to Hull on a short term deal and the Belgians want to link up with Liverpool so that they do not miss out in the future.

They will now have to wait if they want Mavinga on loan, as the transfer window for overseas transfers has passed.

Mavinga was a part of the France squad that won the under-19 European Championships this summer and is a hot prospect at Anfield.

Genk chief executive Dirk Degraen said: “We will consider next week how the co-operation will look like.”

Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson, though, is unconvinced that a partnership would be of benefit to the Merseysiders.
