Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is moving for MK Dons winger Dele Alli.
The Mirror says Rodgers made a personal check on the youngster during the League One sideâ€™s FA Cup draw at Wigan on Saturday.
The England Under-17 midfielder is regarded as a â€śspecialâ€ť talent by Dons boss Karl Robinson, who admitted he has spoken to Rodgers about some of his prized assets.
Robinson revealed: â€śI know Brendan quite well and we speak about different players all the time.
â€śThere may have been another reason why he was at the game today, but youâ€™ve seen Dele and heâ€™s special. Yeah, he did some silly things but heâ€™s 17 years of age. He did bits of magic too.
â€śYou donâ€™t see many 17-year-olds playing in an FA Cup third round against a very good Wigan side and not looking out of place.
â€śIâ€™m very proud of his development.â€ť
