Benitez is being linked with this highly-rated teenager, and this source suggests a move is on the cards.
Liverpool Football Club have set their sights on Mathias Jorgensen.
The 18-year-old FC Copenhagen star is rated as one of the best talents to emerge from Denmark in recent years, and he has already been linked with Danish compatriot Daniel Agger.
Of course, Agger has been a huge success in England since his move to Anfield, and it is being reported that Rafael Benitez wants to add Jorgensen to his Reds ranks in the New Year.
Capped at every level from Under-16 to the full national squad, the 6ft 3in ace has previously trained with Arsenal and Newcastle United, yet his future could well be on Merseyside. (fansfc.com)
Many are unexpectedly comparing Jorgensen with Agger, and the link between the two could well give Rafa the edge in the chase for this highly-rated centre back. The giant’s impressive displays for FC Copenhagen have helped the side to a great start this season, where his efforts have helped the club build up a fantastic defensive record, with the side conceding just seven goals in 15 matches. I think this transfer rumour fits neatly into the category of very likely, and will further add to a very talented batch of youngsters coming through at the club.
Who do Liverpool fans feel the club should bring in when the transfer window re-opens in just over a month?
