Liverpool fans have enjoyed hearing about Rhian Brewster’s exploits during the Under-17 World Cup…
But the club have not only been keeping tabs on the English striker, but Mexico’s Diego Lainez, too.
According to ESPN Deportes, Liverpool have been impressed by the 17-year-old and want to bring him to Merseyside to check him out at the training facilities.
Mexico got knocked out at the quarterfinals, but Lainez was easily their best player.
He already gets minutes for Liga MX side Club America in his homeland, demonstrating what a talent he is.
Lainez plays in attacking midfield and could certainly add something to our Under-23 side, which is already packed with talent.
The likes of Ben Woodburn, Ovie Ejaria, Harry Wilson and Brewster himself are certainly knocking on Jurgen Klopp’s door for first-team selection.
They’re the primary reason we’re top of Premier League 2.
