The Daily Mail is reporting that Liverpool are close to completing a deal to sign 17-year-old Partizan striker Lazar Markovi?.

The Serbian striker is dubbed as the new Michael Owen due to his pace, skill and ability to find the back of the net.

It was thought that he would be joining Chelsea but Liverpool are set to pip their rivals by meeting Partizan’s £8million valuation. A deal may be sealed this January but the player would only probably join Liverpool in the summer.

Not many of us would have heard of Markovi? but below is a video of what the striker is all about.
