Liverpool linked to Adam Nagy.

Liverpool are interested in signing Hungarian international Adam Nagy, but Chelsea are also interested.

Dutch website Voetballzone report the Reds have are keen on Nagy, who is just 21-years-old.

Nagy is a defensive midfielder who plays for Ferencvaros, where he wears the number 99 shirt.

He has already won one title in his short career, and has six international caps for his country. This season he has played 29 appearances, providing two assists.

Nagy is an exciting prospect given what he has achieved so early in his career, and would be a cheaper signing than an overhyped Premier League star.

Liverpool are still searching for a long term replacement for Lucas Leiva for when the Brazilian is moved on, and one way to ensure they do a deal for Nagy is to allow him to remain on loan in Hungary for another season, as they have done regarding Serbian midfielder Marko Grujic.
