Liverpool have confirmed that they will take Gustav Engvall on a trial period at the club, as Kenny Dalglish continues to put into a place a system based around building young players at Anfield.

At just 15 years old, Engvall has starred for Swedish division three side Färjestadens GoIF, and has represented his country at an Under 15 level.

And Liverpool have taken notice of the youngster, with Dalglish keen to try him out in the Reds' youth team.

"It will be great to see how everything works at a big club and it will be a big experience no matter how it goes," Engvall said.

Engvall will arrive at Merseyside in December, and depending on his performances for the side during the month, he could be asked to be a part of the club's youth academy on a permanent basis.

The move signals even more of a shift towards concentrating on Liverpool's youth policy, as the club aim to sign young players who will see out their careers with the side and bring success upon both the youth camp and senior squad.

Just last week the Reds edged out Chelsea to sign £2 million rated 14 year old Oluwaseyi Ojo, with the MK Dons star making an immediate move into Anfield.

Dalglish has often talked about the prospect of creating more players who have spent their careers at Anfield rather than being purchased by the club to bring immediate success; Jack Robinson and Jon Flanagan, for example, have both been given opportunities at a young age to move from the youth ranks into the senior team.

Liverpool are also said to be chasing 15 year old Jordan Ibe - but they face competition from Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea in their pursuit of the wonderkid.
