English giants Liverpool have agreed terms with Ghanaian lower-tier side Steadfast FC to sign talented youngster Abdul Fatawu Issahaku, according to widely circulated reports.
The Merseysiders have agreed to splash £1.5m for the signature of the 17-year-old who was reportedly heading to German Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen.
Issahaku has not been short of options after he was named the Player of the Tournament at the U20 Africa Cup of Nations with Ghana.
The teenager also had two goals nominated for Goal of the Tournament after stepping up from the U17 side that he captained at the Cup of Nations in January.
Issahaku has penned a five-year deal at Anfield and will become the club’s second summer signing after Ibrahima Konate.
Borussia Dortmund and Basel were also interested in signing the player.
Udinese, Nordsjaelland and Red Bull Salzburg have also been linked but their interest was not deemed as serious as the other clubs.
Issahaku was called up to the Ghana senior side for Cup of Nations qualifiers with South Africa and Sao Tome and Principe back in March.
