Germany Under-16 international Melkamu Frauendorf is seemingly on his way to Liverpool and could join the Premier League champions in the coming days.
The Hoffenheim player had been linked with the Reds as far back as June, with reports suggesting that he wanted to leave the club amidst mounting interest from the Merseysider outfit and now it appears that he is closer to his dream move, with an Instagram change to his bio describing him as a ‘Liverpool player’ all but confirming the move.
Jurgen Klopp’s side ended their three-decade-long wait for Premier League glory when they were crowned English champions last month in emphatic style but despite their dominance, Liverpool are not resting on their oars and have already started making gains in the transfer market.
Last week, they completed the signing of Greek international Kostas Tsimikas from Olympiakos for £11.75m and the 24-year-old made his debut in the 3-0 friendly win over Eintracht Frankfurt and subsequently stated his eagerness to provide competition for Andrew Robertson at left-back and make a mark on the Premier League.
Melkamu Frauendorf would represent the second arrival of the summer for Liverpool and he plays primarily as an attacking midfielder, although he can also be deployed in other positions and his creativity and vision earmarks him as a player to watch for the future.
The 16-year-old was born in Ethiopia but represents Germany at the international level and has won six caps for the Europeans at Under-15 and Under-16 levels, while he made 39 appearances for the Hoffenheim youth side in the Under-17 Bundesliga Sudwest, scoring seven goals and registering five assists.
Liverpool kick off the new campaign when they trade tackles with Arsenal in the Community Shield on August 29 before starting the defense of their Premier League crown with the visit of Leeds United on September 12.
