The Premier League and UCL giants Liverpool have reportedly finalised the signing of promising young Dutch centre-back Ki-Jana Hoever.
This Is Anfield’s assistant editor Jack Lusby reports that the highly-rated central defender is an all-around Dutch youth international, who is able to play across the backline.
Hoever will join up with Liverpool’s U18s side this campaign in a bid to make an impact with the Anfield club.
A host of Premier League sides including Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United were all said to be interested in the exciting defender, but the Reds have won the hunt to his services.
The 16-year-old ace’s arrivals follow reports that the Liverpool have completed the landing of Conference Premier (the fifth tier of English football) side Barnet goalkeeper Kai McKenzie-Lyle.
The latest recruitment drive from the Reds shows that the club are constantly on the observation post for the best young players from all over the continent.
Ki-Jana played for Ajax at youth level but the Dutch giants are facing an increasing challenge to keep hold of their prized assets with the Premier League teams watching carefully.
