Dutch news outlet Voetbal International report that Liverpool are among the clubs interested in MVV Maastricht's defender Xavier Mbuyamba.
The player is claimed to be 'the next Virgil van Dijk'. He attracted not only Liverpool's attention. Bayern Munich, Porto and Celtic are reportedly also interested in the young talent.
In his own country, two Eredivisie sides, Heracles and Groningen, are also looking to bring the defender in.
Mbuyamba is 17 years old and hasn't signed a professional contract with his current club yet. The player is on trial at Chelsea right now, but as the Blues are banned from having any transfer activity for at least a year. So Xavier's future is not decided yet.
Xavier Mbuyamba made his debut for the first team when he was just 16, and by now he already has 11 appearances all in all.
Would you sign him?
