Mexican starlet Marco Bueno is delighted with the chance he has been given at Liverpool and is ready to impress on his trial, according to the Liverpool Echo.
The highly rated 17 year old will have a trial at the Kirkby Academy next month and if everything goes well, he will get a five year deal with the Reds. His current club Pachuca claim that a fee for the under 17 World Cup winner has been agreed.
Pachuca vice-president Andres Fassi said: ‘A pre-contract with the parents and Bueno was signed to be sent to Liverpool. So, we are accepting the 10 day trial and the conditions, if the English decide to keep him.’
Bueno has been recovering from a calf injury in recent weeks, but is preparing to be completely healthy when he travels to Merseyside in mid-August.
The 17 year old said: ‘I feel very happy and very motivated. I am wearing the shirt of Liverpool. I have my family behind me and that’s enough to face any challenge. I have to face it with great motivation and commitment to represent the country in the best way and with faith that everything is achievable’.

Jordan Henderson is confident he can handle the expectations of his big money transfer to Liverpool, The Liverpool Daily Post reports.
Henderson’s £16m transfer to Sunderland last month sparked a spending spree of midfielders from Reds boss Kenny Dalglish and the 21 year old will be looking to establish his role in the Anfield side. Henderson will appear in tonight’s friendly against Galatasaray and is prepared to grasp his opportunity.
The Wearside born midfielder said: ‘I’m looking forward to the challenge. I’ll just keep working as hard as I possibly can and hopefully, I can put some good performances in for Liverpool. Liverpool is a massive club and I’m grateful to be part of it’.
Henderson was given extended leave following his involvement with England at the UEFA European under 21 Championships last month and only began training at Melwood last week. He has already felt the effects of Kenny Dalglish’s management and believes he can improve dramatically.
Aquilani exit falls through.
Alberto Aquilani’s proposed season -ong loan move to Fiorentina from Liverpool has fallen through, Sky Sports reports.
The Reds have been locked in discussions with the Italian side over a loan move for the Italian midfielder with a view to a permanent deal. Aquilani is holding out for a permanent deal rather than another loan move, after spending last season on loan like Juventus.
Fiorentina were unwilling to match the price that the Reds had valued Aquilani and the move is understood to have collapsed. News of the failing move is a blow to Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish, as he was looking to trim his squad by selling Aquilani among other players.
Aquilani is surplus to requirements at Anfield after an injury disrupted and poor performance filled first half of the season since his signing last summer from Roma.
