Liverpool Track Dane Sensation Jorgensen

Liverpool are about to look to Denmark again for untapped European talent, with the Merseyside club keeping tabs on Mathias Jorgensen at FC Copenhagen.

18-year-old defender Jorgensen was pointed out to Reds boss Rafa Benitez, by Jakob Friis-Hansen, who had previously advised Benitez on Daniel Agger and Nicola Savic. Friis-Hansen is set to become the Liverpool scout in the region.

“I have previously advised Liverpool over two Danes, with Daniel Agger and Nicola Savic, both of whom they purchased and are almost too happy with,” said Friis-Hansen to

“I gave them Mathias Jorgensen's name a long time ago and Liverpool are wild about him. They are keeping very good track of him.

“Liverpool see him as a very promising youngster, like I do, and clearly just like a player who will play for the Danish national team for many years to come.”

Jorgensen made his senior debut for Copenhagen in 2007 and made 16 appearances in the Danish Superliga last season.

Liverpool have also taken 14-year-old Marcus Sondergaard to train at the Anfield academy, but any move for the young Danish talent would have to wait until the player was 16.

"It is a great dream that is coming true," Sondergaard told Ekstra.
