Liverpool are reportedly interest in signing Blackburn Rovers’ 17-year-old forward Vilius Piliukaitis.
Rovers snapped Piliukaitis up in the summer from the Lithuanian National Football Academy on an initial loan with a view to make the deal permanent and he’s been quite a revelation .
The Reds were linked with him prior to him making the switch to Rovers and following his successful start to his career with them, a host of Premier League clubs have now started tracking him. Arsenal, Chelsea, Tottenham and both Manchester clubs are amongst the named clubs that are said to have an interest.
A source at Rovers is quoted as saying: “Vilius has emerged as one of the best young players we have seen in years, they knew he was talented before he arrived but he is surpassed expectations massively and now it is little surprise that the interest is so high.”
