Liverpool set to sign Koumetio, fans react

Loads of Liverpool fans have been running the rule over the latest transfer news, amid claims the Reds are set to sign 16 year-old Lyon academy product Billy Koumetio.

According to RMC reporter Mohamed Bouhafsi, Liverpool will sign Koumetio this month.

The report claims the teenage centre back arrived in England this week, as Jurgen Klopp and sporting director Michael Edwards continue to build Liverpool’s future.

Koumetio was extremely highly rated at Lyon’s academy, an academy famed for producing talents like Alexandre Lacazette, Samuel Umtiti and Karim Benzema. He has since been plying his trade for Ligue 2 side US Orleans.

The youngster is left-footed, and much like the Reds’ latest debutant Ki-Jana Hoever he has the athleticism, technique and composure to play multiple positions in the back four.

The Reds have shown an impressive eye for talent in the transfer market since Edwards teamed up with Klopp, securing bargain deals for the likes of Andy Robertson and Mohamed Salah, both of whom are now worth far more than what the Anfield club paid for them.

Kouemtio looks to be the latest addition to a Liverpool academy that is brimming with talent, and plenty of fans have been giving their verdict on the news.
