Liverpool Eye Espanyol Youngster Sielva

Oscar Sielva, one the Blanquiblaus' promising prospects, could be playing at Anfield before long...

Liverpool have another Spanish youngster in their sights, with Espanyol starlet Oscar Sielva the latest player to crop up on Rafa Benitez's radar.

According to AS, the Reds have the first option to secure the services of Sielva, a deal secured while they were concluding the transfer of Albert Riera last summer.

The 17-year-old is injured at the moment, having suffered his second shoulder injury of the season, but Liverpool are understood to be tracking his progress clearly, with a view to securing his services in the near future.

Both sides are refusing to comment on the speculation for the time being; however, should the Merseysiders confirm their interest, Espanyol will be highly tempted to sell, especially given their precarious position in the top flight.
