Liverpool are ready to swoop for Atlanta prospect Christian Capone, according to the Mirror.
The fifteen year old has attracted interest from a number Serie A sides, though Brendan Rodgers is ready to steal a march in the race to secure his services after it was indicated that the midfielder was keen on a move to England.
The Merseyside club are keen to finalise a deal this summer, but they will have to wait to bring him in as under current regulations, he cannot be signed until he turns sixteen next April.
The Reds beat Norwich City at Carrow Road yesterday afternoon to go five points clear at the top of the Premier League ahead of their clash with second place Chelsea at Anfield next weekend.
Rodgers’ side are priced at 1/1 to take all three points against Jose Mourinho’s men, which would see them move to within just four points of the Premier League title.
