Liverpool have reportedly expressed an interest in making an audacious move for Derby County teenager Kaide Gordon, according to The Daily Mail.
The Premier League champions have held talks with Gordon about a move to Anfield before the transfer deadline day.
The Reds have agreed a compensation deal with Derby that means the Merseyside giants will have to pay £1m plus £3m in add-ons.
Liverpool hope to finalise a deal with Derby in the next 24 hours before winding up the transfer by the end of the week.
Tottenham Hotspur have also been credited with an interest in the Derby teenager, who clocked up two appearances for the England Under-16 team.
Liverpool haven’t made any new signings in the mid-season transfer window despite facing an injury crisis at the defence.
Liverpool will travel to Tottenham Hotspur in their next Premier League encounter on Thursday night.
