Yesterday, Liverpool confirmed the signing of Bosnian sensation Dal Varesanovic and today, we’ve showed off fellow 16-year-old midfielder Edvard Tagseth.
The Norwegian has had a pre-contract agreement with the club since 2015 and now he’s turned 16, he’ll join up fully with Steven Gerrard’s youth side from this summer onwards.
We beat Manchester United to his signature and coaching staff at the club consider Tagseth to be an outrageous talent. Obviously, we’ve had plenty of these on the books over the past few years and very few make it to the top, but Jurgen Klopp has already showed youngsters there’s a clear path to the first-team for the best.
Liverpool are currently banned from signing domestic Academy players, but Varesanovic and Tagseth have arrived from the continent. It will be difficult for them to adapt to a new country, but can now learn their trade from Gerrard – one of the best midfielders of his generation.
For now, we just hope they settle in well and enjoy both their football and their development.
