Liverpool Reach Agreement To Sign Attacking Midfielder

Despite reports saying otherwise, the Reds have reached an agreement and have signed Fatawu Issahaku from Steadfast FC.

Liverpool brass are currently working hard on transfer negotiations.

Unfortunately for supporters and players alike, it seems that Liverpool's Premier League rivals are also hard at work in negotiations.

Chelsea, Manchester United, Manchester City and even Leicester City are making moves in the transfer market.

Chelsea have been heavily linked with moves for Achraf Hakimi and Erling Haaland, Manchester United are close to signing Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane and Leicester City are closing in on Liverpool target and RB Salzburg striker Patson Daka.

Manchester City, on the other hand, look set to blow financial fair play out of the water with multiple £100 million bids for the English duo of Harry Kane and Jack Grealish. 

While Liverpool have been linked with many players so far in the beginning stages of the summer transfer window, it seems that Jurgen Klopp's side will not be breaking the bank like their top four rivals.

However, reports have come out that Liverpool have reached an agreement and have signed an attacking midfielder.

Sources close Fatawu Issahaku have spoken to Anfield Central and have said that Liverpool signed the 17 year-old wonderkid.

The Steadfast FC attacking midfielder won the Player of the Tournement at the 2021 U20 AFCON tournament.

It seems that the fee to join Liverpool will be just north of €1 million.

The report goes on to say that Issahaku will join Sporting Lisbon on loan for the entirety of next season as he focuses on becoming eligible for a UK work permit.

Once he turns 18, Issahaku will be eligible to join Liverpool.

While many will want the Reds to focus on big name signings, one Ghanaian football expert's praise may help supporters get behind this move.

“Ghana has great football talents and has had a good number of them. The greatest of them all is Abedi Pele. It is interesting to note that, Fatawu Issahaku, at his age, is being likened to the legend Abedi Pele."

Comparisons to the Ghana footballing legend are very high praise for someone at the young age of 17.

Will he live up to the hype?
