Liverpool and Arsenal are set to battle it out for Norwegian striker Andreas Schjelderup - who has been dubbed as the next Erling Haaland.
The 18-year-old caught the attention of the Premier League giants by scoring five goals in ten games this season for Nordsjaelland.
Liverpool and Arsenal also face competition from Sevilla, Borussia Dortmund, Inter Milan and Juventus for the Norway U21 international.
According to Calciomercato, Liverpool and Arsenal are both interested in the striker - who is valued at around £17.5million by Nordsjaelland.
It is believed Nordsjaelland will hold out for their desired price tag as they have already rejected a £3.5m bid from Sevilla.
As it stands, Schjelderup’s contract is set to expire in 2024. Therefore, he could leave the club during the summer transfer window next year.
Additionally, Nordsjaelland may look to cash-in on the striker sooner rather than later to avoid losing him on a free transfer when his deal expires.
Arsenal is an appealing option for Schjelderup. Mikel Arteta is known for developing young players and a move to north London could see him linkup with fellow countrymen Martin Odegaard.
However, Liverpool will be eager to secure his services as they are eager to reinforce their squad to return to the top of the Premier League.
