Liverpool are aiming to trump Manchester United for Burnley teenager John Cofie.

United were expecting to tie up one of the most exciting talents around for about £1m.

But Liverpool hope to pull off a major coup for the young striker - because his family are all mad Kopites, says the People.

Chelsea have also made an offer but their scouts have been banned from Burnley home youth games to stop them seeing too much of the kid in action.
