Liverpool have been given the opportunity to sign Ajax youngster Viktor Fischer, reports the Metro.
The 19-year-old forward initially broke into De Amsterdammers team towards the end of last season with several impressive performances but has failed to carry his rich vein of form into the current campaign, but still managed to start 13 Eredivisie games.
Reports in Holland suggest that the youngster has fallen out with key members of Ajax’s coaching staff and will be allowed to leave the club when the transfer window re-opens in the summer.
Kop boss Brendan Rodgers was one of several managers that were interested in the Dane when he first burst onto the scene a year ago and could now secure his signature for £15 million, with the deal offered to the Northern Irishman by a third party agent.
Fischer, who has a handful of caps for Denmark’s senior side is believe to be keen on a move to Anfield as they look increasingly likely to qualify for the Champions League this season and currently occupy second place in the Premier League, six points ahead of fifth placed Tottenham Hotspur.
His close friendship with countryman and Liverpool defender Daniel Agger could have a bearing on the deal too, but Rodgers, who has highlighted a winger as a transfer priority, will have the final say on whether the Merseysiders pursue a deal for Fischer’s services.Published 11 Mar 2014, 05:00 IST
