According to reports from football website 90MIN, Liverpool are currently in the race to sign Mohammed Daramy from FC Copenhagen after the 17-year-old forced his way into the Danish first-team.
Daramy came on to the scene back in December 2018 after the teenager made his debut for his boyhood club. Despite his age, the young striker has already registered five goals to his professional account and has even featured twice in the Europa League.
Currently learning under the tutelage of former Wolves manager Stale Solbakken, the teenage prodigy has been attracting the scouts of some of Europe’s top clubs including Liverpool.
The Reds have failed to make any big-name signings since securing their sixth European Cup back in June. Instead, manager Jurgen Klopp had turned to youth for his summer additions to add to his current squad depth, with the likes of Harvey Elliott and Seb Van Den Berg joining the Anfield ranks.
The report states that it is in fact Liverpool who are leading the way to sign the young Dane and the centre-forward would provide further attacking ammunition in Klopp’s armoury. Following the departure of Daniel Sturridge, Liverpool have not brought in a striker to replace the former England international, instead entrusting academy graduate Rhian Brewster to step into the mix.
With a current average age of 27.3, the European champions need to focus on integrating more youth if they are planning to dominate on all fronts for the foreseeable future, and the addition of Daramy would certainly see to that.
However, Liverpool are not the only party interested in the youngster’s services. Borussia Dortmund, RB Leipzig and Celtic are also reported to be keen on landing the current FC Copenhagen forward.
