Date published: Sunday 30th July 2017 9:12

Liverpool are eyeing a move for an 18-year-old Belgian defender, while Spurs and Arsenal are eyeing a Ligue 1 starlet according to Sunday’s papers.


Liverpool in for defensive starlet

Liverpool and Southampton are in the hunt for Inter Milan defensive starlet Zinho Vanheusden, according to a report.

The Sun on Sunday claims that the Premier League duo are interested in the 18-year-old, with Liverpool scouts recommending the player to Jurgen Klopp.

German outlet Nieuwsblad claim that the German boss is already in talks with Inter to secure his signature.

However, the report goes on to state that the Serie A club view Vanheusden as a future star, and as a result they are very reluctant to let him go.

The Belgium U19 international is under contract at Inter until 2019, but may be open to a Premier League move.


Rivals battle for teenage striker

Arsenal and Tottenham are reportedly both keeping tabs on teenage striker Yann Karamoh at French club Caen.

According to the Sunday Mirror, both clubs have sent scouts to watch the 19-year-old, who is regarded as one of the most talented young strikers in France.

The report also claims that Karamoh is valued at just under £9 million, but the duo face competition if they are to secure his signature.

The Mirror claims that Serie A duo Fiorentina and Inter Milan have interest in the youngster, while France Football state that Everton, West Ham United and Southampton’s are also in the race.

Karamoh amassed a combined nine goals and assists in 25 Ligue 1 appearances last term, and the Shields Gazette has also claimed Newcastle have interest.
