Liverpool youngster Suso has put pen to paper on his first professional contract.

The emergence of the highly-rated Spaniard has caught the attention of the media and Liverpool fans alike, with his eye for goal drawing comparisons to compatriot and Anfield hero Fernando Torres.

Suso - who turned 17 on Friday - has been turning heads in the Liverpool reserves - scoring a stunning 25-yard strike against Newcastle's second string on his debut.

This led Liverpool reserve team boss John McMahon to wax lyrical about the fleet-footed starlet.

"Suso is a class act, there's no doubt about it," McMahon told the official Liverpool website. "He is a very clever player in the mould of Dani Pacheco and he is very exciting to watch.

"We need to give him the ball and get him in the game because he can score goals as well as create them. He's a joy to watch."

Investing in young talent appears to be an area in which new Liverpool owner John Henry is keen to develop further, and the capture of Suso represents a positive start to NESV's tenure at Anfield.

"We need 'top four' young players," Henry told Liverpool fanzine Red and White Kop.

"They will not produce a quick fix but our philosophy in football will be based on the long-term. That is what has made Arsenal and Manchester United so strong.

"They understand something we understand in Boston - to be consistently strong on the field you must have a consistent flow of young talent that has been nurtured and developed the right way. We will focus on that.

"That is also the philosophy of [Liverpool director of football strategy] Damien Comolli."
