Liverpool are currently banned from signing academy players from any club in England, but are allowed to snap up youngsters from teams around the rest of the world.
Varesanovic is the son of Mirza Varesanovic, who played for the Bosnian national side and also enjoyed spells at Bordeaux and Olympiakos during his playing days.
The new Liverpool youngster was born in 2001 in Vienna while his father was playing with Austria Vienna.
Football Insider Verdict
For such a young player it’s hard to see how Liverpool can go wrong with this deal. Varesanovic is widely an unknown quantity but looks as though he has great ball control skills and could become a star at Anfield in a few years. Liverpool have been forced to spread their net in the search for the best young talent, but they’re perhaps lucky that their ban only stretches as far as England.
