According to Daily Express, Roma have also joined the race to sign Norwegian starlet and Manchester United target Martin Odegaard.

Manchester United are believed to be leading the race for the youngster's signature but will face significant competition from the Italian club as well as the likes of Ajax, Liverpool and Real Madrid.

The 15-year-old plays his club football for the Tippeligaen side Stromsgodset made his first-team appearance earlier this year. He has developed a very good reputation for himself over recent months and is being tracked by several big European clubs. He has already scored 3 goals in 18 appearances fto put the club within two-points of a European qualifying position.

Odegaard made history in August when he made his senior debut during a friendly game for Norway against United Arab Emirates. He is now the youngest player ever to represent Norway at international level.

The Norwegian is also called 'the next Messi' by various media.

Odegaard is a Liverpool supporter and Brendan Rodgers would surely be delighted to hear that. This could make the player opt to make the switch to Anfield, if offered.
