Liverpool Move To Sign Danish Youngster Nikolaj Kohlert - Reports

Nikolaj Kohlert looks set for a move to Anfield...
Sky Sports report that Liverpool are on the verge of signing 16-year-old Nikolaj Kohlert from Danish side Esbjerg in an attempt to bolster their youth ranks.

The Denmark Under-17 player visited Anfield last month for a trial with the Merseyside club, and now the buzz around his native country is that he impressed Rafa Benitez enough to earn himself a place in the academy.

Kohlert is said to be scheduling a meeting with the Reds to discuss personal terms once he returns from his holiday next week and the youngster has been linked with a possible three-year deal.

Normally deployed behind the strikers, Kohlert has yet to make his debut for his current side. The player is also said to be an extremely competent centre-forward.

Signing for Liverpool would see the Dane fight for a place in the reserve squad next season.
