Liverpool are plotting a bid for Serbian wonderkid Richairo Zivkovic who has been called the new Arjen Robben, the Daily Express reports.

Zivkovic, who also holds Dutch nationality, currently plies his trade in the Eredivisie with Groningen.
Zivkovic made his debut for the club in December last year, becoming the youngest player ever to play for the club's senior team at 16 years of age.

And now reports in Serbia suggest that the player could be bound for Liverpool in the near future

According to Serbian newspaper Blic, Liverpool head the queue of clubs wanting to sign the youngster after sending scouts to watch the forward.

Speaking to the paper Groningen president Hans Nijland said: "All the big clubs in the Netherlands are interested in him but Liverpool scouts are particularly active. They are constantly watching us."
