Liverpool have given Molde defender Vegard Forren a trial at the club ahead of a proposed transfer to the Premier League side.
Forren has a lot of admirers in England, with most notably David Moyes, who has been courting the player for months. Interest has reportedly cooled in the central defender over recent weeks, and Everton look to have missed an opportunity with arch rivals Liverpool set to seal his signature.
The Norwegian International is highly rated in his home country and arrived in England today, ahead of starting a trial at Melwood Training Ground this week.
Reports of a medical being arranged are wide of the mark at this time, although if his trial is successful, he will move to Anfield, potentially before their forthcoming Premier League fixture versus Norwich City on Saturday.
The arrival of Forren could allow Uruguayan International defender Sebastien Coates to go out on loan to gain first team football, and will be Brendan Rodgers second signing of the January Transfer Window after Daniel Sturridge.
