Former U.S. Under-17 national team standout Andrew Oliver looks to be the latest young American to catch the eye of English powerhouse Liverpool.

Sources have told SBI that Oliver has traveled to England to train with Liverpool with an eye toward securing a contract.

Liverpool recently completed the signing of U.S. Under-18 striker Villyan Bijev, and has been linked with U.S. Under-17 midfielder Marc Pelosi, but now comes word that the Reds will be bringing in Oliver to train.

Oliver was suspended from the U.S. Under-17 Residency Program and the national team, which caused him to miss the Under-17 World Cup after being the team's leading scorer in CONCACAF qualifying.

What do you think of this development? Like seeing Liverpool take such an interest in scouting and signing young Americans?
