Seung Woo Lee: Check Out The Barça Wonderkid Liverpool Are After

Since Cesc Fabregas joined Arsenal and developed into one of the world's best midfielders, Premier League scouts have been keeping eyes on Barcelona's youth teams to try and repeat the trick.

The latest Barça prospect linked with a move to England is striker Seung Woo Lee, who could be headed to Liverpool according to a report from the Metro. He's not the central defender Liverpool need, but he's got a very bright future ahead of him.

There's a lot of excitement around the 16-year-old Korean, who's regarded as one of the best young players to emerge from La Masia in the last few years, inevitably drawing comparisons with a certain Leo Messi. Being compared with arguably the best player to ever kick a ball is a bit much, but there's something very familiar about the way he darts through defences in the video above.

Barcelona are currently trying to tie Woo Lee down to a contract, but Liverpool are ready to swoop in and club officials are believed to be headed to Spain this week.

Do Liverpool fans want to see Woo Lee join this summer?
