UK paper The Daily Mirror has confirmed that Polish goalkeeper Kamil Grabara has joined Liverpool.
According to the daily, Grabara’s club, Ruch Chorzów, have received a £250,000 fee for the Pole.
In mid-December, Liverpool representatives were in Poland to talk to Grabara, his parents and Ruch Chorzów officials, and this week Grabara was in Liverpool to finalise the details and undergo medical tests. The Reds reportedly beat Manchester City and Manchester United to secure a contract with Grabara.
Grabara, who has his 17th birthday tomorrow, is regarded as one of the greatest talents among the young generation of Polish goalkeepers.
Born in Ruda Śląska, he joined Ruch Chorzów, which have fourteen national championship titles to their credit, in 2011, but hasn’t so far played for the club’s first division eleven.
Grabara will be the second Polish goalkeeper to play for Liverpool after Jerzy Dudek, who, as The Daily Mirror writes, “became a Kop hero following his heroics in the 2005 Champions League final in Istanbul”. (mk/nh)
