Liverpool are ready to sign Arsenal ace Chuba Akpom with the young striker currently stalling on signing a new contract at the Emirates.
Akpom, 19, who is rated as one of Arsenal's most exciting talents, is in the final year of his deal with the Gunners - and is keeping his options open.
Arsenal have put fresh terms in front of him, but despite being promoted to the first-team and playing four games already, he could move away, with Liverpool keen.
They have joined Manchester City in the race while Borussia Dortmund and Twente have made pre-contract offers to get him in the summer.
Akpom is a prolific scorer for Arsenal's youth teams and is famed for his power and pace.
