Liverpool are set to sign goalkeeper Kevin Ray Mendoza Hansen for around £1 million providing he passes a 2-week trial at Anfield.

18 year old Hansen plays for Viborg in Denmark and is currently one of the best young goalkeeping talents around. The highly rated player will have his chance to impress during a two week trial and set to pick up a healthy signing on fee should he sign for the Merseyside club.

Liverpool have a £1m compensation package drawn up in the event he succeeds at his two week trial according to The Metro

Hansen was just one of a few young talents recommended to boss Brendan Rodgers by Liverpool’s head of scouting Dave Fallows. Rodgers is keen to bring in some younger players to the Liverpool team and after Fallows recommendation he invited Hansen for a trial.

Hansen is pleased to be offered the opportunity of a trial at Liverpool and will relish in the chance to gain experience from the team.

‘I look forward to trying to impress,’ he told Viborg’s official website.

‘It will be a great experience.’

Arsenal and Manchester United have also had their scouting teams watch Hansen in the past. Will they regret letting Liverpool get there first?
