German media outlets are reporting that Liverpool have made a bid for 18 year-old FC Schalke 04 centre back Kyriakos Papadopoulos.

Papadopoulos was the youngest ever footballer to play in the Greek top flight at just 15, and earned himself a move to Gelsenkirchen in the summer after rave reviews for his performances.

Few players make the bench against Real Madrid and Lazio at the age of 15, but Papadopoulos did, and now Liverpool are believed to be interested in continuing the development of the teenager.

The Greek defender would be considered a long term replacement for Jamie Carragher, who – though still a great player who is hugely committed to the cause – cannot continue forever.

Could Papadopoulos be the answer?
