Liverpool set to sign young duo

Liverpool look set to add to their youth ranks, trialling Mexican under-17 striker Marco Bueno next month according to The Guardian.

The player, his current club Pachuca, and his parents all agreed arrangements which will see the youngster arrive on Merseyside around the 10th August to begin training with the Red’s reserves, in view of signing a possible 5-year deal. Speaking to El Universal about the proposed move, Pachuca’s vice-president stated: ‘A pre-contract with the parents and Bueno was signed to be sent to Liverpool so we are accepting the 10-day trial and the conditions, if the English decide to keep him.’

Bueno himself added: ‘I have to face it with great motivation and commitment to represent the country in the best way, and with faith that everything is achievable. It’s a life experience that I will never forget, I’m very excited about that and will give my best. Where the opportunity arises I will make the most.’

The Reds have reportedly also struck a deal for Spanish under-18 youngster Nacho, according to the media in Spain. Nacho, who interested Villarreal, Atlético Madrid, Real Madrid and Málaga, will sign from Albacete in a deal worth up to £500,000.
