Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson is eyeing up Preston starlet Adam Barton, 19.

Roy Hodgson is clearly looking to the future, as our new owners NESV who have apparently made it clear that they have a policy to invest in youth which shows a commitment to the future which is of course very laudable but perhaps the club should also be looking to the here and now, especially given the poor start to the season.
Whilst Liverpool have shown a marked improvement of late clearly the Merseyside club is still some way short of the kind of squad that can clinch a top four spot and therefore Hodgson will surely look to bring in some established players to sign in January.
That said, Adam Barton is by all accounts a player with great potential. The 19 year old is a talented central midfielder who would cost Liverpool around £6m though one could argue Hodgson would do better to invest the money in players who are Premier League ready.
