Liverpool are keeping tabs on highly-rated Plymouth Argyle left-back Ben Purrington, according to Sky Sports.

The 17-year-old defender has attracted admiring glances from a host of Premier League and Championship clubs, after a series of impressive performances for the League Two outfit this season.

Reds boss Brendan Rodgers has ordered Anfield scouts to monitor the talented teenager's progress at Home Park, having made 11 first-team appearances for the Pilgrims since making his debut on Boxing Day.

Purrington still has 18 months to run on his current contract with Plymouth, but could leave the club at the end of the season with no talks planned to extend his deal.

Aston Villa, Southampton, Reading, Brighton, Huddersfield and Bournemouth are also understood to be interested in the young full-back, who has been nominated for the League Two Apprentice of the Year award in 2013/14.

Liverpool will face a serious fight to secure the in-demand starlet's signature, with a seven-way scramble expected to ensue when the transfer window reopens this summer.
