Liverpool and Manchester City face competition from Dutch giants Ajax to land wonderkid Richairo Zivkovic.

The teenage winger is one of the hottest young prospects in Europe and currently plies his trade for Groningen, the same side that brought Luiz Suarez to Europe in 2006.

While he has been compared to Arjen Robben, Zivkovic, 17, can play anywhere across the front three and sees himself as a centre-forward.

The Reds were alerted to his talent 18 months ago, and have been impressed by the young forward while while monitoring the progress of Kristian Adorjan's loan at Euroborg. And despite being broken into the team in a substitute role, Zivkovic has five goals in five Eredivisie starts.
