It is said that Reds boss Brendan Rodgers sent chief scout Dave Fallows to watch the England Under-21 international, who is seen as a potential long-term replacement for Steven Gerrard.

The 18 year old limped out of Tuesday night’s Championship draw at Bolton with a hip injury, but had already shown his class with an assist for a goal.

According to the Mirror, Hughes was also checked out by a two-man delegation from Everton, but Liverpool are favourites to land him – possibly in the January window.
