Moses Odjer admits that he is flattered to be linked with a possible move to Liverpool after starring at the FIFA Under-20 World Cup with Ghana.

The hugely talented midfielder may be just 16 years old but that has not stopped him from making a huge impact out in Turkey where he has helped the Under-20 side reach the semi-finals of the World Cup.

Odjer has played in all four games and scored the first goal in the 4-3 win over Chile which helped the Africans qualify for the last four.

A number of clubs are said to have sent representatives to watch the youngster in action, with reports in Odjer's native Ghana suggesting that Manchester United have already enquired about his availability.

United scouts are believed to be closely watching the performances of the box-to-box midfielder and were in attendance on Saturday night in Istanbul to see his performance in the quarter-final against Chile.

Sky Sports reports that as well as Manchester United; Benfica, Porto and Liverpool have all enquired about the teenager who currently plies his trade for Ghanaian club Tema Youth.

Questioned on the mounting speculation, Odjer admitted that despite unaware of any concrete interest from Liverpool he was flattered to be linked with the club.

"To be honest, I am not aware of the interest from Liverpool. I know that clubs such as Porto and Benfica are here and I have good reports from them," said Odjer, as quoted on Sky Sports.

"Liverpool are a mighty club so to be linked with them is a fantastic feeling. It is like a dream.

"But the reality for me at the moment is to play against France and to try and qualify my country for the final."

Liverpool have spent the past few years strengthening their academy as they have looked to bring the best talent from around the world to the club.

In recent seasons they have snapped up plenty of home grown players in Jordan Ibe, Raheem Sterling and Andre Wisdom, while Suso was signed from Spanish side Cadiz and Dani Pacheco from Barcelona.
