Liverpool are to take young Danish goalkeeper Kevin Ray Mendoza Hansen on trial for a week and could offer the teenager an Anfield contract.

The 18-year-old Hansen plays in the Danish top-flight for Viborg, where he is back-up to first choice stopper Martin Hansen, but has been given permission to train with Liverpool for a week as he attempts to impress manager Brendan Rodgers and his coaching team.

“I look forward to trying to impress,” Hansen told Viborg’s official website. “It will be a great experience.”

Rodgers has made a point of signing talented young players since taking over the reins as Liverpool manager in the summer, including with his two captures of striker Daniel Sturridge from Chelsea and Inter Milan midfielder Philippe Coutinho in the January transfer window.

He is also thought to on the lookout to add to his pool of goalkeeping talent having missed out on the purchase of young England stopper Jack Butland, who instead went to Stoke City in a £4million deal from Birmingham City.

Liverpool’s current number one Pepe Reina could leave the club in the summer after being linked with a return to Barcelona where his career began, which would leave Brad Jones as the only goalkeeper at the club with Alexander Doni have left in January.
