Liverpool move to beat Chelsea, Arsenal for internet sensation William McLaren

Liverpool could be signing their first internet footballer. The Reds have offered trials to 15 year-old Brazilian William McLaren after spotting him on the 'net.

Liverpool approached McLaren after seeing him on 'Pnera', a Brazilian internet-based project aimed at discovering football talent.

"A representative of Liverpool came to see me play, liked what he saw and the club sent me a contract," McLaren told

"Other teams are also interested: Manchester, Chelsea and Arsenal. Then, we'll see what happens."

The teen admits he bases his game on Santos star Neymar.
