Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has set his sights on another young addition at Anfield, with Josip Basic reportedly on the Reds radar.

TalkSPORT claims the 16-year-old Hadjuk Split starlet – who remains on Scholarship terms with the Croatian club – could sign his first professional deal on Merseyside if the club are successful in their pursuit.

Jutarnji List, a national paper in the player’s homeland, claims Liverpool have been ‘observing’ the player, and have taken a shine to the captain of the nation’s U17 side.

Basic would join a long list of talented youngsters at Anfield if he made the move to England, with Raheem Sterling, Suso and Andre Wisdom all getting their chance in both the Premier League and Europe.

Indeed, all three players are set to be offered new contracts after impressing at the start of the season for the Liverpool first team, and their progress suggests that Basic might be able to earn a senior chance if he joined the Rodgers revolution.

Liverpool are expected to name a team packed full of teenagers in tonight’s Europa League clash against Udinese at Anfield.
