Liverpool might just have found themselves a replacement for Luis Suarez.
They've handed a trial to 15-year-old attacker Juan Manuel Sanabria who plays for Nacional in his homeland Uruguay – the same team Suarez started his illustrious career with.
There’s not much information out there about Sanabria, other than earlier this week at Melwood for a two-week trial with the club’s academy team alongside fellow Nacional team-mate Augustin Pereira, as revealed by Di Marzio’s Joseph Musker...

What we do know is Sanabria is an attacking midfielder who turns 16 next March, but looks like a seriously impressive talent already if this footage is anything to go by.
In the seven-minute video, Sanabria single-handedly rips apart opposition in a similar style to Suarez, scoring goals with his left, right and with his head as well as laying on countless goals for his team-mates...
If Liverpool fans were still looking for the heir to King Luis’ throne, then they may have just found it with Sanabria.
Fans will now wait patiently to see if he can impress sufficiently during his trial period and sign a deal with the club.
