Liverpool scouts track Belgium U21 international

Liverpool are being linked with a move for highly-rated Belgian midfielder Dennis Praet.

Reports in Belgian publication DH claim that Reds boss Brendan Rodgers sent scouts to watch the 18-year-old in action on Friday night, whilst Italian website TMW also claim the ex-Swansea boss has an interest in the youngster, who was on top form in a 2-0 win over Waasland-Beveren at the Constant Vanden Stock Stadium.

Praet spent the majority of his youth career at Genk, but signed for Anderlecht in 2010 without making a single senior appearance at the Cristal Arena.

The U21 international was promoted to the first-team after just a season with the Purple and White outfit, but was also linked with a Premier League move as Chelsea and Liverpool circled during the 2011 summer transfer window.

Anderlecht managed to keep hold of the player however, and his performances have continued to impress in the Belgain Pro League.

Contracted with his current club until 2015, Liverpool boss Rodgers would be adding another young star to the Anfield squad if he were able to lure the player away from his homeland.

Were the talented teenager to move to Merseyside, he'd be joining the likes of Suso, Raheem Sterling and Andre Wisdom in the Liverpool ranks.
