Liverpool are reportedly in talks to sign West Ham teenager Amara Nallo, with the Reds keen to add the English defender to their academy ranks.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Liverpool are in discussions to bring the 16-year-old centre-back to Anfield, with Nallo the latest player the Merseyside giants are looking to add to their youth system.

Described as a ‘Rolls Royce’ of a player by West Ham coach and former Premier League striker Carlton Cole, Nallo is the latest exciting prospect to emerge from the Irons prosperous academy.

Only making his U-18 Premier League debut last season, Nallo is regarded as a player with incredible potential and a prospect who could one day make it at the senior level with the right training and development.

And this is could potentially be why Liverpool are now in talks to sign Nallo, with the Reds one of the best clubs in England for an exciting British prospect to learn the ropes and to get the best footballing education in the country.

Indeed, Nallo has all the qualities needed to become a superstar centre-back for Liverpool, and the training the defender will receive at the club will help the youngster take that next step in his already promising career.
