Liverpool sign £250,000 teenage wonder-goalie

Liverpool have been very busy in the first full week of the January transfer window, adding Ruch Chorzow goalkeeper Kamil Grabara to their ranks as a member of the Under-18 squad.

According to the Metro, the deal is worth £250,000 to bring Grabara in from Poland. Manchester United and Manchester City were both reportedly interested in a move for the highly-touted goalkeeping prospect.

The Metro previously noted that Grabara has even earned the moniker the “new Jerzy Dudek” – an homage to the famous Polish stopper who played a large portion of his career with Liverpool and won five trophies with the club.

The 16-year-old Grabara turns 17 on Friday and has already been capped seven times for the Poland Under-17 team.

Liverpool’s goalkeeping struggles have been well-documented, but manager Jurgen Klopp expressed his faith in Simon Mignolet after reports surfaced that the club were pursuing a deal for Barcelona stopper Marc-Andre ter Stegen.
