Liverpool are chasing Hajduk Split wonderkid Josip Basic.

The 16 year-old is tipped to be a star and regarded in the same class as Dinamo Zagreb starlet Alen Halilovic.

Basic is yet to sign pro forms with Hajduk Split and Jutarnji List says Liverpool are pushing to bring the Croatia U17 captain to England.

His scholarship deal with Hajduk Split expires in 2014.
