Liverpool have shown their youth policy once again by scouting a 15 year old from Swiss side FC Basel, according to the Daily Mail.

Nicholas Hunziker is being watched by chief Reds scout Frank McParland as the Reds are keen on bringing him to Anfield. The 15 year old made his debut for the Swiss national youth team and scored a hat-trick, which has alerted the interest of a host of top European sides. Liverpool believe they have seen enough talent before that game and are eyeing up a bid to submit to the Swiss side.

Basel are open to selling their player, but could be inclined to demand that the youngster spends the rest of the season back on loan at the club before making the switch to Merseyside. Hunziker will be available for a nominal fee and becomes one of many youth players that Liverpool are attracting under the stewardship of Reds manager Kenny Dalglish and Reds director of football Damien Comolli.

My son has aspirations of rising up to academy level once again.He is fourteen at the moment.One thing that dismays me about this, is the fact that Hunziker will have all his expenses paid, his accommodation also.My son who is very talented was let go by Liverpool, all because of us not being able to get to the academy on certain days. We as a family are very unfortunate to be poor, no job, no car.The car would be needed to travel to and from Kirkby academy,which makes us outcasts,for the future.. no club would take him i think (because of our situation) if this is way they behave as normal, then i am truly shocked. With the money that LFC has, i am sure that such a talent should not be wasted. But it seems neither they care or give a damn for localised talent from within the liverpooL area. You can contact me any time.
