Since completing the signings of Jordan Ibe and Oluwaseyi Ojo at the tail end of last year, Liverpool have continued to scout a number of promising youngsters around the world.

On Thursday, the Reds confirmed their interest in highly-rated Ghana midfielder Mumuni Abubakar, who will join the club for a two-week trial.

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has overhauled the club's youth set-up since returning to Anfield 12 months ago and the Scot continues to be linked with a host of top young players throughout Europe.

Coveted Liverpool youngster Jordan Ibe is already impressing since arriving in December, with the 16 year old making his debut for the Under 18 side as they took on Crewe at the weekend.

And Liverpool youth coach Mike Marsh believes that the striker has great potential, and is already showing that despite being with the club for just a month.

"We've not seen an awful lot of him, as he has been travelling," he said.

"But he did well, and once he gets adjusted to his new surroundings he will do even better."

Dalglish is keen to bring in additional youngsters during the next 12 months and with this in mind, IBTimes takes a look at five players Liverpool will be keeping tabs on during the second half of the season.
