And one talented teenager who may be arriving at some point is Perr Schuurs, a 17-year-old centre-back who already captains Fortuna Sittard in the Dutch second division.
The Daily Mail claim the 6ft. 3′ Dutchman has already spent time at Liverpool’s training facilities, with the club suitably impressed with what they saw.
