Liverpool have made a move to sign M'baye Niang from under the noses of Tottenham, it has been claimed.

According to, the Merseysiders have made an 'initial enquiry' into the seriousness of the approach reportedly made by their Barclays Premier League rivals.

L'Equipe had previously suggested Spurs were considering an offer of around €8 million for the 16-year-old Caen striker, who is being touted as one of the most exciting prospects in French football.

However, it would appear Spurs may have to contest Liverpool for the signature of Niang, should the Anfield club formalise their interest.


But so far, according to Caen chairman Jean-Francois Fortin, neither Spurs or Liverpool have tabled an offer for the teenage star.

"I have had no proposition," he told L'Equipe. "But if we receive one, we will study it."

The acquisition of the best young prospects is a high priority for Spurs and Liverpool, while both clubs recently missed out on England starlet Connor Wickham to Sunderland.
