Norway midfielder Martin Odegaard has reportedly enjoyed a training session with the Liverpool first-team at their Melwood training base on Thursday.

According to the Daily Mail, the Stromsgodset midfielder arrived at Merseyside on Wednesday to check out Liverpool's stadium and training facilities. He has also already had similar spells at Manchester United and Real Madrid.

Even though he was there only to take a tour around the stadium, he was given an opportunity by the manager Brendan Rodgers to showcase his skills to his potential new teammates during a training session at Melwood.

Odegaard is a highly sort after youngster, and there are plenty of clubs vying for his signature. It is believed that arch rivals United, who already had a chance to see the midfielder up close are keen for him to return for another stint at the club.

The Norwegian, who became the youngest player to appear in a European qualifier match, when he made his debut for the senior team against Bulgaria, is hoping to secure his long-term club future by the end of the current season.

Odegaard is a boyhood Liverpool fan, and that will give Rodgers' team a fair chance at landing the midfielder during the summer, but the player himself has revealed that his love for the Reds will not affect his decision regarding his future.

The Norwegian international has also been warned by former Liverpool striker Stan Collymore about making a hasty decision and moving to a big club too soon.

However, with various European clubs vying for the youngster's signature, Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has ruled himself out of the race to sign the midfielder, but insists that he is keen to know which club Odegaard will choose.
