Liverpool to move for recent young player of the year.

Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson is tracking Basel’s highly-rated midfielder Valentin Stocker as he continues to make plans for his Anfield revamp.
Stocker, 21, already has six caps for Switzerland and is renowned for his goalscoring ability.
He scored twice against Wales in last month’s European Championship qualifier.

Valentin Stocker and alternative target Balazs Dzsudzsak both play in a position Liverpool are missing a top quality talent: left midfield.
Maxi Rodriguez has proven himself a useful outlet in recent games, but doesn’t possess the pace, trickery or delivery needed for the team. Being right footed, he also tends to cut inside and move into central areas. Still, his help on the defensive side has made him a valuable player for Liverpool to have available.
Both Stocker and Dzsudzsak would cost less than the likes of Eden Hazard, and their price makes them a more likely purchase in the notoriously difficult January transfer window.
