Liverpool are one of the clubs interested in signing Real Madrid starlet Israel Salazar this summer, according to a report.

The Reds seem to be focusing more on recruiting young players as prospects for the future rather than going for big names.

Harvey Elliott became their second signing of the summer when he joined from Fulham, arriving after 17-year-old centre-back Sepp van den Berg who signed from Dutch side PEC Zwolle for £1.7m last month.

Now, Bernabeu Digital are stating that Liverpool are one of as many as 50 clubs that are in the running for Salazar. There is not currently much information available on the 16-year-old other than that he plays for Real’s youth team.

As transfermarkt note though, has has made eight appearances for Spain’s U16 side since making his debut back in January, scoring twice.

Klopp did recently reveal that contract extensions are the main ‘transfer’ priority for Liverpool this summer.
