South American wonderkid arrives for Liverpool trial


Liverpool have handed a 15-day trial to Penarol's prolific 17-year-old striker Agustin Davila.

The young Uruguayan is flying to England on Saturday to begin his stint at Liverpool’s Melwood training ground, where he will train with the Reds’ academy players.

Davila is thought to be the best player of his age in Uruguay, having represented his country at Under-15 and Under-17 level.

He has scored over 100 goals at youth level in the Uruguayan Under-14, Under-15 and Under-17 leagues.

The Reds took two schoolboy forwards on trial from Uruguay last season – Juanma Sanabria and Agustin Pereira – both from Luis Suarez’s old club Nacional.
