Liverpool are weighing up a summer swoop for £5m-rated Emirates winger Omar Abdulrahman.

The 22-year-old plays for Al-Ain and the UAE national team and was rated the No.1 Asian player in 2012.Arsenal invited the player commonly known as Amoory for a trial last summer, but he turned it down as he wants to land a permanent move to the Premier League.

A year later, after starring at the London Olympics, Abdulraham had a trial at Manchester City.

But a deal broke down due to work permit issues.

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers still needs a wide player having missed out on Mohamed Salah and Ukrainian Yevhen Konoplyanka during the January transfer window.

Egyptian star Salah joined Chelsea instead while Dnipro failed to conclude a £12m deal for Konoplyanka on deadline day.

Rodgers could yet go back in for Konoplyanka at the end of the season.

But Abdulrahman has now emerged as an alternative, with Liverpool chief scout Barry Hunter keeping a close eye on him.
