Liverpool coach scouts Shamrock Rovers goalkeeper Gavin Bazunu

Liverpool are eyeing Shamrock Rovers goalkeeper Gavin Bazunu.

The Irish Independent says Reds keeper coach John Achterberg has watched Bazunu in action for Shamrock Rovers.

Jurgen Klopp's goalkeeping coach was at Tallaght Stadium on Friday to watch the 16-year-old keep his third clean sheet on the spin in the 2-0 win over Derry City.

Former Reds boss Brendan Rodgers was impressed with the teen during a recent week-long trial at Celtic, while he's also spent time at Arsenal and Brighton and Hove Albion.

As the Hoops are sponsoring Bazunu's school fees at Ashfield College, and he's due to sit his leaving certificate next year, it will take a lucrative offer for the club to do business. Only last week, they sold Graham Burke to Preston North End for €300,000.
