Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers was in the stands last night taking a personal scouting mission as he ran the rule over Bayer Leverkusen teenager Julian Brandt according to the Daily Mirror.

Rodgers watched as the youngster put in a solid display, scoring a goal, and is said to be readying a summer bid for the 17 year old.

The attacking midfielder, who is most commonly used in a wide role, is considered one of the hottest prospects in German football and could possibly be tempted by a move to the Merseyside club.

Brendan Rodgers is well known for his willingness to trust to youth and may feel the need to strengthen his options in the final third.

There is every chance that the Liverpool manager would look to offload both Fabio Borini and Iago Aspas and Rodgers is unlikely to make a move for loaned in wide-man Victor Moses after a rather average series of displays from the Nigerian international.
