Transfer Story – Versatile £40million player desires to agree Liverpool move
The Reds splashed the cash to sign Alisson from Roma in the summer transfer window last year and the Brazilian goalie has been sensational in his first season at Anfield.
Simon Mignolet is currently the second choice shot stopper at the club. The Belgian has mostly warmed the bench since the arrival of Alisson and if he opts to leave this summer then Klopp must sign an adequate replacement.
Ojrzynski would obviously not compete for a place in the first team but he can push to earn a place in the club’s youth teams.
In the last campaign, he made 11 appearances for Legia Warsaw’s youth team. conceded 18 goals and kept only 3 clean sheets. As far as his international career is concerned, so far, the teenager has made two appearances for the U-16 Polish team.
It will be interesting to see how well Ojrzynski does at Liverpool but the fact that top European teams were interested in him clearly indicates that the boy has got serious talent. For the future, we can only hope for the best.
