Liverpool have reportedly won the race for Bristol City teenage sensation Herbie Kane.

The 14-year-old midfielder, who has already drawn comparisons to Reds skipper Steven Gerrard, was being tracked by a host of Premier League clubs of late. However, according to Sky Sports, Liverpool have now trumped their rivals and secured the services of the youngster.

Despite his age, Kane was promoted to Bristol's U-18 side last season. He is one of the most sought after young talents in England at the moment and has been tipped for a bright international future with the Three Lions.

Kane will now move to Liverpool's Melwood academy to continue his development. Bristol will receive due compensation for the player's exit. The youngster becomes the second youngster to leave the relegated League One outfit in a matter of days, following fellow midfielder Jacob Maddox's transfer to Chelsea.

Carragher: Everton and United Fixtures are the Biggest

Meanwhile, Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher claims the Merseyside derby at Goodison Park and the two fixtures against Manchester United are the club's most important games of the season.

The Reds host United at Anfield on August 31st this season, while the reverse fixture at Old Trafford is scheduled for March. Also, their cross-town trip to Everton comes as early as November this time.

"I'd always look for Everton away - there's always a bit of spice and a big atmosphere at Goodison. It's always a cauldron. We had a great record there over the years and I'm sure that's what Liverpool will be looking to do again this year. The first derby is at Goodison," Carragher said.

"Of course, after that, it's the big Manchester United games; there's not much to choose between the two of them really. But for me, being a local lad and an Everton fan as a kid, I'll certainly always look for that one," the 35-year-old added.

Carragher hung up his boots this summer, after making over 500 Premier League appearances for Liverpool.
