Done Deal: Liverpool complete signing of 16-year-old shot-stopper

Fabian Mrozek has signed for Reds. Liverpool have agreed on a contract to sign the Polish shot-stopper and Schlage said he will train with the first-team shot-stoppers at Anfield in the near future. The FC Wroclaw shot-stopper had a trial with Reds back in September and he impressed the staff at the club’s academy.

Liverpool’s staff apparently decided then that they’d like to sign the youngster but had to wait until he turned 16-years-old to complete a deal. Now that he has turned Fabian is allowed to make the move to the new PL champions.

Fabian will become the third Polish shot-stopper on Liverpool’s books, following in the footsteps of Kamil Grabara and Jakub Ojrzynski, so Liverpool clearly have a thing for ‘keepers from Poland.

At the age of 16, it’s pretty much impossible to expect anything from Fabian in the short term, but fans of the club’s academy teams will be keen to see the youngster in action when academy level football resumes in the Autumn.

Reds will be looking for reinforcement in the summer despite winning the PL in dominant fashion with 23 points adrift from second-placed Man City. Liverpool signed Takumi Minamino from RB Salzburg during the winter transfer window.

Liverpool manager appears keen on boosting his midfield as the club has been linked with Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago Alcantara and Bayer Leverkusen star Kai Havertz. The PL champions appear to be leading the race for Spain international, who is expected to make a decision about his future as his contract runs out next year.
