The Merseyside giants have been trying to sign a quality winger for some time now, with Reds head coach Brendan Rodgers coming close on a couple of occasions in the January transfer window to landing such a player.

However, firstly the Northern Irishman saw arch rivals Chelsea steal highly rated FC Basel’s Egypt international Mohamed Salah from under his nose.

And then the club just ran out of time to be able to complete a £20m deal for Ukraine international Yevhen Konoplyanka on transfer deadline day.

But now Liverpool are said to be eyeing up a third flyer in the form of United Arab Emirates international Abdulrahman, a player who is also known as Amoory, with the club’s chief scout Barry Hunter having recently run his eye over the 22-year-old.

Abdulrahman was previously invited for a trial with Premier League leaders Arsenal, only for the youngster to turn the north London club’s offer down as he was only interested in a permanent move to a top-flight club, while he also almost joined Manchester City too, only for that transfer to collapse over work permit issues.
