Liverpool to confirm Bajcetic and Scanlon captures in teenage double swoop

Liverpool are set to completethe capture ofteenage defendersStefan Bajcetic and Calum Scanlon ahead of the January transfer window.

Both deals are expected to be confirmed in the new year.

Jurgen Klopp's side will welcome both players into their Under-18 setup on Merseyside as the Premier League champions continue to seek to nurture leading talent of the future among their ranks.

The signing ofBajcetic - thought to have cost in the region of£224,000- has not only seen Liverpool beat out Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Red Devils but also impending Brexit regulations.

Clubs in the United Kingdom will be unable to sign players under the age of 18 from European Union nations owing to freedom of movement restrictions from 2021 onwards.

Scanlon - who previously confirmed on Instagramthat he was set to make the switch to Anfield - meanwhile arrives from St Andrew's for a fee in the region of £400,000.

Bajcetic - a central defender first observed by club scouts in 2019 - has been tracked by Reds representatives in both Spain and England, withMatt Newbury and Kiko Espinar having worked closely together to sell the 16-year-old on their vision over United.

Both his signature and that of the 15-year-old Scanlon is particularly notable given Liverpool's more traditional reluctance to invest in academy-level players outside of their own club hierarchy in comparison to their rivals.

Bajcetic and Scanlon are expected to report for duty with the U18side at KirkbyunderMarc Bridge-Wilkinson, with a view to moving up towards the U23s under Barry Lewtas.

Lewtas was an integral player in helping to sway Bajceticto Liverpool. alongsideacademy director Alex Inglethorpe andassistant academy director Nick Marshall .

Liverpool's senior side, meanwhile, face a New Year's breather following Wednesday'sgoalless draw with Newcastle, returning to action on Monday against high-flying Southampton.
