Liverpool are closing in on Swiss hot shot Nicholas Hunziker. The Mirror says Kenny Dalglish's scouting guru Frank McParland watched the Basel babe in action last week and hopes to agree a deal for him shortly.

Hunziker, just 15, has been on the Kop's radar since he notched a hat-trick for his country's youth team on his debut.

Dalglish's European scouts have watch him but now McParland has moved in and the swoop is in its final stages.
