Liverpool scouts were in attendance at last week's Uefa Youth League game between Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid, according to a report in L'Equipe.

The Anfield representatives had their eyes firmly set on two starlets from the Ligue 1 outfit. They go by the names Christopher Nkunku and Lamine Ba.

Nkunku, 17, is the more established of the two, and is already threatening to break into Laurent Blanc's first team. He went on PSG's pre-season tour of America, playing a prominent role in the high-profile friendly against Manchester United.

And he again impressed against Real Madrid in the Under-19 competition, scoring twice in what was a convincing 4-1 win. Ba, 18, also made an important contribution in defence.

Nkunku is highly regarded at Parc des Princes and convincing him to swap Paris for Liverpool will be tough for Jurgen Klopp. But the German manager will be pleased to know that, according to the same report, the attacking midfielder has yet to sign a senior contract with PSG.

Similarly, Ba only joined PSG from Guingamp in the summer and may not fancy giving up on making it with the French champions so soon.

The chance to work under such a reputable manager like Klopp may well give both Nkunku and Ba reason to pause, especially as he has a track record for integrating young talent into his senior squads.
