Liverpool have agreed a deal for a 14-year-old described as the ‘new Martin Odegaard’.

According to Tronder Avisa, the Reds have been monitoring the progress of Norweigian midfielder Edvard Tagseth over the past few months, and the youngster has agreed a pre-contract with the club.

The report claims that Tagseth will make the move to Merseyside when he turns 16 in January 2017, and will remain in Norway until this date.
