Liverpool have been linked with teenage striker Victor Christopher de Baunbag, who has been tipped to make a breakthrough at Real Mallorca. The 18-year-old, whose family comes from Cameroon but was himself born in Madrid, has risen through the academy ranks at the second-tier Spanish side.
Victor has spent three years in the youth ranks at Mallorca and finished as the club's top scorer every season, leading him to a promotion to the club's 'B' team.
According to Catalan newspaper Sport, he will drop into the Under-18s set-up to play the bigger fixtures, with Victor primed to face off against Barcelona this weekend. The story suggests he is expected to earn first-team minutes with Mallorca by the end of the campaign, with the six foot two forward considered an ideal fit for the Premier League.
This, seemingly, has alerted Liverpool's scouts, with Sport claiming they have been tracking his progress for a while, with the player's agency aware of interest.
Liverpool will be aware of Mallorca having sent Colombian centre-back Anderson Arroyo there on loan last season, with the player now with Belgian club Genk as he looks to earn a work permit at Anfield.
Arroyo was initially meant to spend two seasons with the Spanish outfit, but the Reds cancelled the deal in the summer after deciding his development would be best served moving elsewhere. (Liverpool Echo)
