Liverpool are reportedly keeping tabs on 16-year-old Real Madrid forward Israel Salazar, and a compilation of his best moments shows exactly why he’s seen as such an exciting prospect.
Bernabeu Digital named the Reds as an interested party but suggest, remarkably, that as many as 50 clubs could be in running.
Based on this glimpse of Salazar, though, it’s certainly a race worth entering.
The video showcases his dazzling footwork as time and again he effortlessly glides past defenders en route to goal.
He also demonstrates an excellent composure in front of goal, intelligent movement in-behind the backline and great awareness.
His pace, close control and aerial ability make him a true nightmare to defend against.
Another wonderkid to add to our already bristling roster, potentially.
