Liverpool are maintaining a watching brief for MK Dons winger Dele Alli.

The Daily Mail says Reds chief scout Barry Hunter watched him in action at the weekend.

Reds' boss Brendan Rodgers was among the crowd to see the midfielder turn out for his club against Wigan Athletic during their FA Cup Third Round tie last week.

And the club's manager instructed his colleague to run-the-rule over the 17-year-old who scored in the 3-2 victory over Shrewsbury Town at the weekend.
