Liverpool are showing interest in taking young Chelsea defender Kenneth Omeruo on loan. Swansea and West Bromwich Albion have also expressed an interest in the Nigeria international.
Omeruo, 19, has been granted a five year work permit by the Home Office but Chelsea want to loan him out so he can develop. The Nigeria centre-back can also play right-back. Liverpool, meanwhile, are keen on MK Dons’ 17-year-old midfielder Dele Alli.
Brendan Rodgers had scouts watching Alli in their 0-0 draw with Shrewsbury on Saturday.
