Swansea face a battle with Liverpool to sign teenage Cliftonville striker Rory Donnelly reports the Daily Express.

The 19-year-old is attracting interest from a number of English clubs, with League One side Brentford having also made an offer for the talented youngster.

Reds boss Kenny Dalglish has been alerted to Donnelly's potential and is weighing up an attempt to entice him to Anfield when the transfer window reopens in January.

However, Liverpool will face competition from the Swans, after manager Brendan Rodgers tabled an undisclosed bid for a player that has scored an impressive 17 goals already this season in the Irish Carling Premiership.

Donnelly, a 6ft 2in Northern Ireland U21 international is best described as an 'old-school No.9' - with his uncompromising figure, and no-nonsense approach meaning he will be well suited to the Barclays Premier League.

Burnley and Peterborough United lead a list of Championship clubs also believed to be tracking the striker, but Swansea and Liverpool are the favourites to land his signature.
