Liverpool's are set to take further advantage of their relationship with Uruguayan side Nacional, by trialing four of the club's youngsters.

Rodrigo Amaral, Leandro Otormin, Gaston Pereiro and Daniel Baldi will all begin a trial with the Reds this week.

The moves follow Sebastian Coates' arrival at Liverpool last summer, which former director of football Damien Comolli at the time claimed would spark a link between the two sides.

"This is very important for us because this step has been taken thanks to the Nacional name and what the club have achieved in the last few years," he said.

"It is fundamental for the kids to travel, to discover the world and take on this life experience. It will be unforgettable for them, and we want them to make the most of this experience."

It's expected that the quartet will take part in 10 training sessions before returning to their parent club on April 29.

The brief trial is one of the benefits which came from the signing of Coates last summer, as Liverpool continue the trend of looking to bring in young players.

Jordon Ibe, Seyi Ojo, Dan Smith and Joao Teixeira have all recently joined Liverpool as part of their re-modelling, with the onus of bringing through young players rather than continually paying out for expensive, albeit established, professionals.

The troubles of those big-money purchases this season has given extra clout to their youth policy, which has bared fruit over the past 18-months, with John Flanagan, Martin Kelly, Raheem Sterling and Jack Robinson all making their first-team Liverpool debuts.
