Liverpool are eyeing Montenegrin starlet Deni Hocko.

Sources in Italy claim the Merseyside team and fellow Premier League side Crystal Palace have contacted club Buducnost Podgorica over his availability, says the Daily Star.

Hocko has impressed when representing his national side at Under-17, Under-19 and Under-21 levels.

The 19-year-old has been dubbed the new Andrea Pirlo, having only recently made a move to the Montenegrin side this summer.
