Liverpool Sign Impressive French Starlet

Rafa Benitez brings in more talent for the future

The Rumour

Liverpool are reported to have agreed a deal for highly-rated French youngster Chris Mavinga.

Reports in France suggest Liverpool have agreed a three-year deal for the Paris St Germain defender.

Mavinga, who has yet to make a first-team appearance for PSG, is regarded as one of the best young prospects in France having played for the French Under 18 side.

Arsenal have been credited with an interest in Mavinga in the past, but it appears Liverpool have beaten their Premier League rivals to the 18-year-old’s signature.

The Analysis

Rafa continues to collect good young talent before it blossoms in much the same way as Arsene Wenger has been doing for years, such is the current financial climate that it appears this is the wisest course of action.

As for the player himself, hard to really say much as he hasn’t made a first team appearance but clearly the scouting system knows what it’s doing and the club could well have themselves a solid centre back for the future.

The Likelihood

Mavinga to Liverpool: Done and dusted
