Liverpool eyeing exciting teenage star

Liverpool are planning a summer move for Fulham prodigy Patrick Roberts, according to reports from The Metro.

The 18-year-old winger plies his trade in the Championship with the Cottagers, but has played a fringe role for much of the season.

Despite this, the Reds are extremely keen on landing his signature, with a move at the end of the season in the pipeline.

Roberts, thought of as one of the most exciting talents in his range in Europe, and scouts from the Merseyside club are believed to have been watching him closely over the course of the past few weeks with a view to a potential swoop.

The teenager played a big role in Fulham’s FA Youth Cup run last season and also featured for the west London club in the Premier League – but was unable to help them clear of relegation to the second tier.
