Marlos Moreno is being tracked by Liverpool, according to Portuguese newspaper A Bola. The Colombian is attracting interest from a host of clubs including Santos, Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea and Porto, and Liverpool are also monitoring the player’s progress, according to sources in Portugal.

Moreno currently plays for Atletico Nacional in Colombia and has recently been called up by Jose Pekerman for the World Cup qualifiers in February. He came on second half substitute against Bolivia, replacing Chelsea’s Juan Cuadrado in the 85th minute making the assist for Edwina’s Cardona last minute winner in a 3-2 victory. Colombia currently sit fifth in the South America World Cup qualifying section, on 10 points from six matches, one point ahead of Brazil.

The 19 year old has come to prominence this campaign after scoring 3 goals in 4 matches in the Copa Libertadores, the South American equivalent of the Champions League. He can play either as a striker or as winger, and currently Brazilian club Santos are the only club to have made a concrete offer for Moreno according to the agency which currently own the “sporting rights” to the player. In South America, its common practice for agencies rather than clubs to own players but to abide by Premier League rules, the Reds would have to buy the player outright from the agency for any deal to go through.
