Liverpool are reportedly keen to secure a pre-contract agreement for Derry City youngster Trent Kone-Doherty.
With the futures of Mohamed Salah and Divock Origi in considerable doubt, Liverpool are likely to focus their attention on signing at least one first-team attacker during the summer transfer window.
However, according to Independent.ie, the Premier League giants also have their eyes on boosting their youth ranks.
The report claims that Kone-Doherty is likely to agree to move to Anfield at some point in the near future, with Derry recouping a six-figure sum.
Kone-Doherty does not turn 16 until the summer, but the winger has already represented the Republic of Ireland Under-17 side on three occasions.
