Liverpool are bringing in countless youth players this summer from oversees, probably because of our domestic Academy transfer ban, with Finnish starlet Patrik Raitanen the latest.
The youngster uploaded this snap of himself signing a contract alongside Steven Gerrard, to prove as much, on Twitter.

Raitanen is a towering centre-back who’s just 15-years-old and played for the brilliantly named FC Jazz in his homeland.
We couldn’t help but notice how much he looks like Lucas Leiva when the Brazilian moved from Gremio, all those years ago!
He follows Norwegian wonderkid Edvard Vagseth and Bosnian midfielder Dan Varesanovic to the Academy since the end of the season.
All three will work under Gerrard’s guidance this coming campaign.
