Liverpool scout: These three youngsters will be in the first-team soon

David Vizcaino, a Spanish scout for the Reds, has talked up the merits of Sergi Canos, Pedro Chirivella and Madger Gomes.

Liverpool have invested heavily in Spanish players over the last decade, with some of the biggest stars that the Reds have had coming from the Iberian nation.

Alongside the presence of the likes of Alberto Moreno and Jose Enrique in the senior Reds squad, Brendan Rodgers’ men have invested in young Spanish players that are currently caught up in the Anfield club’s youth ranks.

David Vizcaino is a Spanish scout that has been crucial in bringing young players from the European nation to Merseyside.

The football talent watcher has stated that three Spanish members of the youth ranks, Sergi Canos, Pedro Chirivella and Madger Gomes, will be vying for a place in the first team in the near future.

“We are making a strong commitment in young players,” Vizcaino told Marca.

“An example of this is Raheem Sterling or Jordon Ibe.

“Since I joined as a scout the club have invested in Spanish youth. Very soon we will see Pedro Chirivella, Sergi Canos or Madger Gomes the first team - and some of them playing regularly.”

Canos arrived at the Anfield club from Barcelona in 2013 after being part of the fabled La Masia youth academy and is a talented midfielder.

Chirivella is a central midfielder that signed from Valencia in 2013 and has been likened to former Reds hero Xabi Alonso for his range of passing.

Gomes was signed from Villarreal and the playmaker is a Spain under-18 international.

The Reds are widely expected to shake up their squad this summer, with the potential for a number of youth-team players to get a chance in the senior ranks.
