Liverpool are apparently desperate to sign the new Raheem Sterling, otherwise known as Fulham’s Patrick Roberts, despite the fact that they already own the old one.
The 17-year old winger is even smaller than the diminutive Sterling at just 5ft 5” tall and benefits from a similar low centre of gravity. The Mirror claims that Liverpool are currently scouting Roberts, with the aim of of signing him in January and loaning him back to the Championship outfit.
Liverpool fans might think that some decent defenders might be more of a priority but Rodgers seems somewhat addicted to signing attacking midfielders. With the likes of Chelsea and Arsenal also monitoring the England U-19 star, a move is likely to come quickly.
Roberts has been fast-tracked into the Fulham side this season and has already made 12 appearances for the club. Watch the following videos to see what the fuss is all about.
