Bayern Munich have had the highly rated 15 year old midfield star Martin Odegaard involved in a session at the club’s training ground in recent days.
This will come as a blow to Liverpool, who have been consistently rated with a move for Odegaard.
Odegaard is one of the more highly rated young stars plying his trade in Europe today.
Despite the relative size of his current club, Stromsgodset, his inherent talent has attracted suitors from throughout Europe and in the Premier League.
The likes of Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United have all been credited with an interest in signing him.
Real Madrid and Barcelona are also thought to have been chasing his signature.
However, Liverpool seemed to be closest to signing him.
Odegaard is known to be a fan of the Anfield club, with both himself and his father having followed them since a young age.
Bayern’s interest will almost certainly come as a blow to Liverpool, however, with the German side being one of the most successful in the world in recent years.
It could, however, just be another stop on his recent tour of the continent’s leading clubs, which has also included Liverpool, as reported by the Daily Star.
