Liverpool tried and failed to bring Martin Odegaard to Merseyside. Norway's youngest ever international player was courted by most of Europe's top clubs but eventually joined one of the biggest in Real Madrid.

Brendan Rodgers would have been disappointed to miss out so he made sure he bagged Norway's next biggest talent Edvard Tagseth.

Norwegian's biggest commercial television station TV2 claims the 14-year-old is on his way to Anfield after agreeing a deal.

But Liverpool fans shouldn't flock to get this youngster's name on the back of their Liverpool shirts because he won't officially move to the club until he turns 16 in January 2017.

The deal has not officially been signed yet, but it is understood that a form on gentleman's agreement has been reached. A Liverpool official will travel to Norway in the near future to rubber stamp it.

Beating rivals

Liverpool were not the only club interested in Tagseth as the youngster had recently travelled to the training grounds of both Manchester United and Manchester City as well as Everton.

Convincing him to join the Liverpool academy is a significant victory for the recruiting team, who were disappointed not sign Odegaard.

The 16-year-old had admitted he supported Liverpool before travelling to Merseyside to take a tour of their training ground. For a time, the Reds appeared favourites.

They can only hope Tagseth continues to develop at his current rate. If the highlight reel is anything to go by, Liverpool fans can have reason to get excited.
