Liverpool are hoping to take Chelsea youngster Kenneth Omeruo on loan for the new season, reports the Daily Mail.

The Nigerian defender has moved back to the Premier League after his 18-month loan spell with ADO Den Haag expired.

The 19-year-old, who is also wanted by Swansea and West Brom, is likely to be loaned out again by Chelsea. Boss Jose Mourinho is keen for Omeruo to gain more experience, with his first team options seriously limited.

The former Real Madrid coach believes Omeruo will improve more playing first team football away from the club than with the Chelsea reserves. And after making 27 appearances for ADO Den Haag last year, Omeruo will be hoping to find a club with a similar amount of opportunities.

Liverpool have already added to their defence this season with the free transfer of Kolo Toure from Manchester City. The Ivorian comes in to replace Jamie Carragher, who retired from football at the end of last season.

Omeruo has made 14 international appearances for Nigeria, and was part of the side that won the African Cup of Nations in February.

West Brom will be hoping their relationship with Chelsea will give them an advantage over Liverpool and Swansea, after they took Blues forward Romelu Lukaku on a successful loan spell last season.

Who should sign Omeruo on loan? Or should he move abroad?

    I think omeruo will garner more playing time in at westbrom or swansea. But liverpool will be a massive exposure for him, chelsea should use the loan move to snap up suarez from the grip of arsernal
