Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has joined the chase for Fulham’s emerging French striker Moussa Dembele.

Rodgers sent a three-man team to watch the 17-year-old score twice for the Londoners’ Under-21 side last week.

Dembele - snapped up from Paris Saint-Germain in the summer - has been in sensational form for Fulham’s youth and reserve sides, and that has alerted top clubs such as Manchester United.
