Liverpool has strengthened its interest in Callum Hudson-Odoi of Chelsea, with the player agent "having a conversation" with the Reds.
The team of Jürgen Klopp should keep a close eye on the 18-year-old and be prepared to play against FC Bayern München in the summer.
The Blues rejected a bid of £ 35m made by the German champions during the transfer period in January, and are determined to join the star with a new contract worth € 100,000 a week.
According to the German outlet company Kicker, Hudson-Odoi's brother Bradley, who is also his agent, recently had a conversation with Liverpool about a possible move in the summer.
Hudson-Odoi has not started a Premier League game for Chelsea this season and has only played in the FA Cup and Europa League so far. He has, however, impressed with a number of goals and assists.
And it was these insights that were enough for Gareth Southgate to make his full England debut this week at the Chelsea Academy. He started Monday's 5-1 win over Montenegro – days after he arrived for his first international against the Czech Republic, Wembley
After the game in Montenegro, Southgate was full of praise for the Blues winger.
"I'm really satisfied," he said.
"The game was a simple game. We talked all week about using the breadth and making sure we did not reject the option to use our wingers.
"There we were fabulously productive at night, and young Callum Hudson-Odoi did a great job showing what he showed us all week.
"And so that the team can recover from a backlog, in a place that was very difficult for us before, we showed a good character and it was a good test for us.
"It's always up to them for young players. You can see the talent, and his application with us was excellent and he has to continue that, "he added.
"It's a big step forward for him, but like every player, you have to work and improve all the time."
