Valencia duo Jesús Vázquez and Cristhian Mosquera ‘caught the eye’ of a Liverpool scout in Spain U19s recent clash with Austria.

That’s according to Super Deporte, who say the Reds joined ‘half of Europe’ in sending scouts to watch over the game.

They explain that Spain’s youngsters are in a battle to qualify for the next European Championship, with the latest clash seeing them draw 2-2 with Austria.

Both Vázquez and Mosquera started the game and, according to the outlet, put in ‘outstanding’ performances.

That’s good news for them as ‘top technical secretariats’ from up to 18 clubs in Europe, including Liverpool, were in the stands, and the duo ‘caught the eye’.

The Valencia pair are considered as ‘natural leaders’ in the national team and have taken their club form, where they are regulars under José Bordalás, onto the international stage.

Indeed, both nearly topped off their superb performances with chances at the end of the game that would have sealed all three points.

Despite that not happening, their ‘physical and technical conditions’ did not go unnoticed by the scouts in attendance.

Fortunately for Valencia, they are both protected by the fact both players are tied to contracts until 2025, and in the case of Mosquera, it includes a €25m release clause.

Both players have also made it clear they would like to stay and be successful at the Mestalla.

Liverpool, then, would have to pay a big sum to get at least one player, and likely Vázquez too, should the interest from their scouts ever turn into transfer efforts.
