'We sold you Sterling, now back off Roberts...'

Liverpool are reportedly preparing to hijack Manchester City's move for the very highly rated Fulham youngster Patrick Roberts.

The 18-year-old is one of the biggest English talents of his age and although Man City were thought to be well ahead in the £10m chase to sign the winger, Liverpool now seem determined to beat them to his signature.
