English Premier League giants, Liverpool have reportedly secured the signing of Ghana wonderkid Abdul Fatawu Issahaku from Steadfast FC for a fee of £1.5m, according to journalist Saddick Adams.

The Reds had been previously linked with the forward who was thought to be close to a switch to the Bundesliga with Bayer Leverkusen.

The 17-year-old, who has apparently signed on a five-year contract, won’t be able to join up with Jurgen Klopp’s men for the next campaign due to work permit concerns and as such is expected to be loaned out in the meantime.

The former Steadfast FC star has enjoyed an incredible year, having played an instrumental role in Ghana’s U-20 Africa Cup of Nations triumph in Mauritania.

He earned his first call-up for the Africa Cup of Nations qualifying matches against South Africa and Sao Tome and Principe in March.

The highly-rated teen has also been named in a 30-man squad for Ghana’s upcoming friendly fixtures against Morocco and Cote d’Ivoire next month.

Black Stars coach CK Akonnor is expected to hand the youngster his debut as he prepares his team for the World Cup qualifiers in September.
