Deal complete: Liverpool sign winger with ‘ferocious talent’ after agreement reached

Another source from Ghana has confirmed that Liverpool have signed Fatawu Issahaku from Steadfast FC for over €1million despite suggestions to the contrary.

It was recently denied by domestic reporters that Liverpool are in agreement to sign Issahaku or that there is a commitment to do so when he turns 18.

However, a senior source has told Anfield Central that there is an arrangement in place to sign the 2021 U20 AFCON Player of the Tournament.

The 17-year-old’s move to Liverpool has earned Steadfast FC a fee worth over €1million which is incredible given the player’s age.

Liverpool have reached an agreement with Steadfast FC worth over €1million, beating the like of Manchester United to his signature.

He will move to Sporting Lisbon on loan for the 2021/22 season or for as long as it takes for him to become eligible for a UK work permit.

New immigration laws in line with Brexit policies determine that players under the age of 18 are unable to join English clubs and will need to play at least one full season in a major European league to qualify for a visa.

A source with knowledge on Ghanain football and Issahaku, in particular, told us about his ‘ferocious talent.’

He said: “Ghana has great football talents and has had a good number of them. The greatest of them all is Abedi Pele. It is interesting to note that, Fatawu Issahaku, at his age, is being likened to the legend Abedi Pele.

Anfield Central source: Fatawu Issahaku is a ‘ferocious talent’ and has been compared to the great Abedi Pele.

“The two have some shared routes. Burst into the limelight at an early age. Both have a wicked left foot and have incredible dribbling abilities.

“Fatawu Issahaku is a winger who likes to dribble. He has the ability to shoot from any angle whenever he has the opportunity and has an immense acceleration capacity.

“Can easily play anywhere in midfield and highly effective on the wings and likes to cut inside. 

“His talent is ferocious. For his age and playing in Ghana’s lower tier, it is because of his notorious potential that’s already made him a star.”
