Liverpool transfer news
The 17-year-old has also impressed for Nigeria’s youth teams, and has been tipped to make a loan move from Anfield as soon as he joins, most likely to Belgium or Holland.
This would be a similar move to Liverpool’s move for Belgian starlet Divock Origi while he was still at Lille, which saw him immediately loaned back to the French side.
