Liverpool agree deal for talented youngster likened to club favourite (not Grujic)

Liverpool have agreed a deal with Ruch Chorzow for the transfer of talented young goalie Kamil Grabara, according to reports from Slask Sport.

The 17-year-old stopper – who has been capped at U-17 international level – is considered to be one of Polish football’s top emerging talents and has already been dubbed the ‘new Jerzy Dudek’.

Liverpool are understood to have been monitoring his progress of late and now reports claim that they’ve moved to agree a deal with his club.

It’s understood that the transfer could be made official by the end of the week, which would follow the imminent announcement of Marko Grujic – who has been likened to Steven Gerrard – moving to the club from Red Star Belgrade.

Liverpool have snapped up a number of talented young players from both England and further afield in recent years, including Raheem Sterling and Jordon Ibe, as well as the departed Suso.

Dudek was in goal for Liverpool as they won the Champions League in 2005 and is considered to be a fans’ favourite for his performance in the penalty shoot-out against AC Milan in Istanbul.
