Liverpool have been told that they must wait until the summer to make a move for Melbourne Victory winger Marco Rojas.

The New Zealand international has attracted much attention over the course of the current A League season, notching ten goals in 15 appearances, form that has alerted the Premier League giants in particular.

They are believed to be willing to bring the 21-year-old to England and are keen to strike a deal soon, with his current contract set to expire at the end of the season.

However, Melbourne’s manager Ange Postecoglu has played down talk of a January switch for Rojas, insisting that the club will not cash in and want to keep him until the end of the current campaign:

“I’m in contact with his dad very regularly and at this stage we’re confident he’ll stay with us until the end of the season,” he is quoted by talkSPORT via the Herald Sun.

“We’ve been in constant discussion with Marco and from our point of view we’re very happy with his form this season and how he’s developing and his development is a priority.

“At this stage we’re comfortable with how he’s going and where things are at.”

The Reds are believed to be in the market for young talent and Rojas, who is of Chilean descent, appears to fit their policy.
