Liverpool have accepted a ‘seven-figure’ bid for Canadian left-wing Liam Millar as the 21-year-old gets set to join Switzerland outfit, Basel.
According to the Liverpool Echo, Millar is ‘expected’ to join the Swiss outfit after the club accepted a bid from Basel and after spending five years with the Merseyside outfit, his stay will soon come to an end.
Sam Carroll, the author of the report, claims that he is close to agreeing personal terms and Liverpool “are close to confirming a deal.”
Millar’s imminent exit comes shortly after Anfield Central was given confirmation that Fatawu Issahakue has joined the club despite suggestions otherwise.
It was denied by domestic sources earlier this week but a senior source from Ghana told us that the deal is complete and that he will spend the 2021/22 season on loan in Portugal.
He will move to Sporting Lisbon on loan 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.’
Elsewhere, Liverpool are planning talks to sign Donyell Malen but with Mino Raiola in charge of his affairs and with his attendance at the EUROs, it’s not a straightforward deal.
There is also yet to be any movement on the midfield front as Liverpool stall on making their move to see what opportunities present themselves this summer.
Once the EUROs end, there is likely to be a lot more action on the transfer front as clubs wait to see what happens with players that are currently involved.
