Liverpool are reportedly on the verge of making Chelsea youngster Isaac Christie-Davies their first signing of the summer on a free transfer.
The 20-year-old was not offered a new deal by Chelsea, and Liverpool swooped earlier in the year to get him in on trial, ahead of other interested suitors.
It appears likely he impressed the academy staff at Liverpool during that trial, and they are now set to offer him a contract, according to an ESPN report.
Christie-Davies will join Dominic Solanke as the second Chelsea youngster to make the switch to Anfield in just two years – as Liverpool look to win the Premier League next season (bonuskode).
However, whereas Solanke went straight into the Reds first-team, Christie-Davies looks likely to join up with the academy squad.
Liverpool were required to pay a fee for Solanke, as he was offered a deal at Chelsea, but that won’t be the case with Christie-Davies, much to the Reds pleasure.
The midfielder, who won two FA Youth Cups and the UEFA Youth League at Chelsea, should be announced as a Liverpool player in the coming days.
