Liverpool have completed the signing of young prospect Conor Bradley to the club’s academy. Bradley is believed to have signed a scholarship contract which runs for two years after which the club could offer him a full professional contract.
Bradley moves from Northern Ireland club Dungannon United youth setup and has already undergone trial at the Liverpool.
It is understood that Liverpool coaches were impressed with his ability and this led to the club handing the youngster the scholarship contract.
The talented teenage prodigy would be hoping to play regularly for the u18 side which won the FA Youth Cup last season.
Jurgen Klopp has proven that he is not shy of handing youth products a chance in the first team. Trent Alexander-Arnold is a good example of a player that progressed through the youth grade and has become a mainstay in the first team.
Bradley would be looking to follow the same part and it remains to be seen how he would fare at the club.
Meanwhile, the Reds are thought to be closing in on a deal for Lille ace Nicolas Pepe. The 23-year-old is currently with Ivory Coast in the AFCON 2019 tournament.
However, his representatives have begun talks with Liverpool over a possible transfer. Lille have put an asking price of £70 million for the forward but Liverpool wants to negotiate for a lower fee.
