The Swedish winger joined Liverpool at the age of 16 and has impressed during a recent loan spell with League One side Tranmere.

Peterson made six league appearances for the Rovers during a month-long loan deal and also featured in the second round of the FA Cup as Peterborough beat Tranmere 5-0 at London Road.

Although Peterson is yet to make his first-team debut for the Reds, he remains a central figure in the club's Under-21 campaign and is committed to securing a new contract with the club.

"I am fully focused on Liverpool," Peterson told Fotbolldirekt.se.

"There is nothing else. I have a very positive feeling right now and I feel that I deserve that.

"I have worked extremely hard recently and if I continue to work as hard as I can, I know I will get chances."

Before going on loan to Tranmere, Peterson scored once in his three Under-21 Premier League appearance and despite feeling a regular, the 18-year-old admits he would not turn down another loan move.

Technique

"I feel that I have earned my place for the reserves and when I play I will show the club what I can do," Peterson added.

"But of course, I don't close any doors and I might consider going on loan again."

Peterson acknowledged the value of his time at Prenton Park and admits the physicality of League One football has developed a new aspect to his game.

"It was a good experience," he claimed. "I need to play first-team football and it was cool to play matches that really matter, with a lot of spectators and so on.

"Everyone who watched me play knows that I am good with the ball and can play the nice game.

"But now I have also started to learn the physical part. In League One it is not the technique that matters so much, but the physical game."

e made his power play to try and get Sheikhy to raise his wages or trade him to PSG. PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
