Liverpool are following Inter Milan youngster Rene Krhin.

The Slovenian teenager is regarded as an exciting prospect for the future and Liverpool are understood to be monitoring his situation at Inter.

However, the Reds are likely to find it difficult to prise him away from Inter as he still figures in the plans of Jose Mourinho.

"In Rene Krhin I see what I expect from a 19-year old," Mourinho told reporters.

"He is really professional with big ambitions, and I'm also very happy with his discipline and talent.

"He has played in Serie A, was on the bench in the Champions League and I will surely use him again this season.

"I wish him all the best in his career and I will say this once again - Rene has everything that a young player should have."

Krhin maintains that he is happy at Inter, having come through the youth ranks, and has heard nothing from Liverpool.

"It is nice to hear that somebody is interested in you, but I really don't know anything about Liverpool," he told Ekipa.

"And beside that - I really don't care about this kind of rumour. I leave all this to my manager Marcel Kacinari, whom I completely trust."
