Anfield prodigy Sergi Canos has claimed he is looking forward to his debut with Liverpool's first team.

The Merseysiders signed the 17-year-old Spaniard in the summer of 2013 from the prolific Barcelona academy.

The Anfield prodigy was considered one of the biggest prospects to emerge from La Masia but Liverpool convinced him to snub the Catalans with a lucrative contract – taking advantage of the Spanish law which states that a player must be 16-years-old before he can sign a professional contract with a club.

During an interview with Castellon Informacion, Canos admits he misses Spain but when questioned whether he would consider a return to his homeland or if he prefers to stay at Merseyside, he said: "Now I am here, at Liverpool, and I would love to play in the Premier League and at Anfield one day. I wish to have that luck.

"Those who have been at Anfield know how impressive it is. The first time I went to see the first team there I hallucinated. I have no words to describe what my father and I lived that day. Playing at Anfield is an extra motivation for the youngsters."

Canos is a regular with the Spain under-17s international team while he currently plays at Liverpool under-18s, having also made his under 21 debut at the start of the 2014-15 season against Manchester United.

The Spaniard can play both as a winger and as a number nine but when questioned about his favoured position, he said: "I feel better on the right wing. It's where I think I play the best but I also like to play up front."

Meanwhile, the Spaniard claims he is working hard to emulate former Everton star Gerard Deulofeu, who is currently on loan at Sevilla from Barceloa.

"I identify myself with Gerard Deulofeu. I love his personality and his way of playing. We both played on the right side but I still have to work and improve a lot to become like him."
