Liverpool-linked teenager Fatawu Issahaku appeared to confirm his reported switch to Anfield on social media, as reported by Anfield Central.

Having caught attention at the U20s AFCON, it had been claimed that a £1.5m deal would take the young forward to Merseyside from Steadfast FC – a claim refuted by The Athletic journalist James Pearce.
Jurgen Klopp is certainly known for having a preference for developing promising young talent rather than acquiring a finished product.
Of course, Issahaku doesn’t quite fit within the reportedly ideal 20-24 age grouping that the recruitment is said to have in mind when considering potential signings for the first-team.
Given how the likes of Kaide Gordon and Harvey Elliott have impressed in pre-season, however, with the latter earning a place in Klopp’s first-team squad, there’s nothing to say that the young Ghanian wouldn’t be handed chances to impress, potentially in cup competitions.
