A former Liverpool academy graduate is reportedly set to return to English football.
Kristoffer Peterson, who joined the Reds’ youth set-up back in 2011, will discuss terms with Swansea City after a fee of up to £1million was agreed with Dutch side Heracles, according to BBC Sport.
He seemed set for big things at Anfield after starring for the club’s U18s between 2011 and 2013 and making a swift step-up to the U21s.
Following a short loan spell at Tranmere, Peterson earned a place in the senior set-up during the preparations for the 2014/15 campaign. He scored in friendlies against Brondby and Preston, but didn’t quite do enough to convince Brendan Rodgers he merited a place in the first-team squad and was sold to Utrecht in 2014.
A further three years down the line he moved to Heracles, where his impressive form – 12 goals and six assist last season – caught the eye of the Swans.
He will once again work with Steve Cooper, the coach who oversaw his progress in our academy.
Swansea finished 10th in the Championship last season and will be hopeful that Peterson can play a key role in a playoff push.
Interestingly, he’ll replace Manchester United signing Daniel James, who played on Swansea’s wing last term.
