11-year old Zak Gilsenan already has a long list of clubs who have been chasing his signature, but it seems that the Irish starlet is headed to Liverpool from Barcelona. 

Dublin-born Gilsenan was brought to Barcelona from Australia (where his family was living at the time) a few years ago for a trial game and bagged seven goals, earning the nickname the Irish Messi and impressing pretty much everyone with his talent. 

However, after two years at La Masia's formative academy, his family have taken the decision to leave Catalonia and head to England, where a whole host of clubs were looking to sign the young man, including Chelsea, Tottenham, Arsenal, Man United and Manchester City, but they have reportedly taken the decision to move to Liverpool. 

They are another club that prides itself on its academy and Gilsenan will be hoping that his future lies at the Anfield club, so keep an eye out for him making his debut in the coming years. 

Gilsenan played with the Barcelona youth team since he signed for them two years ago, and has even captained them on occasion, as well as playing in a number of different positions including on the wing and up front.
