Liverpool are on the verge of signing South American wonder kid
Liverpool are currently under negotiation with the agents of a 15-year-old South American wonder kid Kendry Paez over a move to the Merseyside.
According to 90min, the Merseyside giants have already ‘registered their interest’ in the Ecuadorian youth. But LFC are not the only one interested in the South American. Four other Premier League sides including Chelsea and Manchester United are also behind Paez’s signatures.
Apart from the Premier League some of the elite clubs across Europe are also keeping an eye on the teenager. He is reported to be one of the bright young prospects in the current generation.
The youngster was impressive in the ‘Next Generation Trophy’ last year. Only turning fifteen in May, Kendry has been added to the Independiente del Valle’s first team.
Why Kendry Paez?
The 15-year-old plays as the attacking midfielder for the Ecuadorian side. According to reports, his playing style and game maturity have earned him a 9M bid which was rejected by the Independiente del Valle.
Liverpool desperately needs an injection of fresh blood, especially in the middle of the park. This season the Red’s midfield is being burnt out to an extent that they are producing below-average performance.
The Merseyside giants are also a victim of multiple injuries. Curial players like Thiago Alcantara and Arthur Melo are out due to injury. Thiago is dealing with a hip issue on the other hand the Brazilian is out due to an injury he faced during a training session.
The English giants were linked with several midfielders in the whole transfer window but were unable to sign them due to a lack of financial muscle of FSG. Their prime target Enzo Fernandez is also being hijacked by the rival club Chelsea.
But no one can deny Klopp’s pull in the transfer market. Youth players want to work under Jurgen Klopp. The German has the quality to transform players into legends.
Paez will be able to travel to Europe in 2025, according to FIFA’s rule. But will he be willing to join the Reds? The question remains.
