ESPN report that Liverpool are looking to bring Mexican starlet Marco Bueno to Anfield.
The Reds are reportedly in talks already with Bueno’s club Pachuca over bringing the 17-year-old to England.
Pachuca vice-president Andres Fassi was quoted as saying: “We are conducting negotiations with Liverpool and possibly, on August 1, Marco Bueno will pay a visit to Liverpool. We have already practically closed negotiations with them. They want to buy 100% of the rights”.
Bueno has been linked with a move from Pachuca following his impressive displays for Mexico during the Under-17 World Cup. The move could prove to be a master stroke by Kenny Dalglish if Bueno has a similar impact on the Premier League as compatriot Javier Hernandez who scored 20 goals from 45 appearances in his debut season for Manchester United.

Sales before more signings.
Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has today confirmed that the club’s summer spending spree is on hold until he can offload some players from his squad, according to the Daily Post.
New owners Fenway Sports Group have bankrolled King Kenny’s major recruitment drive since he took over from Roy Hodgson, and have splashed out nearly £50m already in the current transfer window.
Speaking at a fans forum Dalglish has this to say: “We’re delighted with the work we’ve done. Whether there’s more remains to be seen and depends on players going out.”
The only player to leave the Anfield club so far is Paul Konchesky to Leicester City for around £1.5m. The reds would also be willing to listen to offers for the likes of Philipp Degen, Habil El Zar, Emiliano Insua, Brad Jones and Milan Jovanovic, who are all surplus to requirements.
Fiorentina plan Aquilani move.
The Liverpool Echo reports that Fiorentina are hoping to tie up a deal with Liverpool to take Italian midfielder Alberto Aquilani back to Italy.
The Serie A side are expected to make an approach for the midfield playmaker in the next few days.
The 27-year-old Italian international impressed during the reds pre-season tour of the Far East, but with manager Kenny Dalglish needing to offload some fringe players, Aquiliani’s time at Anfield looks to be at an end.
Aquilani was bought in 2009 by then manager Rafa Benitez for £17.6m, but has failed to shine in his time in England mainly due to injury and lack of playing time in his first season. He was then loaned out to Juventus for the whole of the 2010/2011 campaign.
