Reds set to sign Spanish youngster

Liverpool are on the verge of completing a deal to sign highly rated 16-year-old Spanish midfielder Jesus Fernandez Saez, according to the Spanish press.

Saez, nicknamed Suso, has been touted by La Liga giants Real Madrid and Barcelona also, but it is believed he has been temped by a move to join fellow countryman Rafa Benitez at Anfield.

He will reportedly sign a five year deal with the Reds, with his present club Cadiz receiving a compensation package.
