Liverpool are on the verge of signing attacking midfielder Dele Alli from MK Dons, according to reports.

The Daily Express claims the 18-year-old is set to sign for the Reds in January, but will return to the League One club on loan until the end of the season.

Alli has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League in recent months, and the report claims it's Liverpool who have won the race for the player in a deal that could total £9million.

He had also been linked with Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea, and it's no surprise that the Premier League giants have been chasing him given that he's been dubbed 'the English Messi'.

Transfer coup

Given that comparison, his arrival at Anfield will be a significant transfer coup for Liverpool as they look to consolidate their place among the elite in the English game.

Brendan Rodgers made a number of significant additions in the summer, with the likes of Adam Lallana, Lazar Markovic and Mario Balotelli all joining the Reds.

Unlike that trio, Liverpool will not feel the benefit of Alli's services this season if he were to arrive in January, although confirmation is yet to come from either club over the deal.
