Liverpool ready to plot official bid to sign Lyon midfielder

Liverpool are reportedly considering making a bid for Lyon youngster Mohamed Bahlouli.

The 18-year-old, who is part of his team’s Under-19s setup, is being tipped for a first-team breakthrough in the near future.

According to France Football, Liverpool scouts are keeping a close eye on Bahlouli ahead of a potential swoop at the end of the season.

Premier League duo Anthony Martial and Alexandre Lacazette, as well as Hatem Ben Arfa and Karim Benzema, began their careers with the Ligue 1 side.

The Reds, currently third in the Premier League table, are next in action against West Ham United this weekend.
