Liverpool have agreed terms with both Fortaleza and Anderson Arroyo regarding a transfer to Anfield.
However, work permit stipulations mean the Colombian will first head to Spanish side Mallorca until he’s eligible to work in the UK.
Like virtually every other Red, we hadn’t seen much of the 18-year-old before this news broke, but have tracked down some footage of the marauding left-back in a fixture for Colombia U20s against Chile.
In the individual highlights package embedded into the tweet below, you’ll see our new signing’s strength, speed and aggression.

He reminds us a little bit of Mamadou Sakho in that he looks like he’s uncomfortable on the ball, but actually has it under perfect control!
He’s obviously a much better dribbler than the Frenchman, too.
Obviously a short highlights clip isn’t indicative of his chances of succeeding at Anfield, but he undeniably has ability.
Hopefully he can hone it under Jurgen Klopp.
