English Premier League side Liverpool have pipped Bayer Leverkusen by snatching Ghana whizkid Abdul-Fatawu Issahaku from the jaws of the German side.
The 17-year-old signed a five-year contract with the Reds on Saturday night to complete the Europe move for the highly sought-after player.
The financial terms of the deal remain sketchy but insiders have told Ghanasoccernet.com that the deal is twice as much as what was agreed with Leverkusen.
Issahaku passed his medical in a German hospital on Friday night before the deal was sealed to complete a big turnaround for the player who was on the verge of signing for Leverkusen.
Liverpool snatched the player directly from Leverkusen just three days ago when the midfielder arrived in Germany with his advisors and agent to complete the deal to the Bundesliga side.
