Liverpool set to seal move for Ajax right-back

  Liverpool set to seal move for Ajax right-back Liverpool are set to complete a deal to sign Ajax right-back Ki-Jana Hoever this week. According to The Liverpool Echo, Hoever has been training with Liverpool’s academy this summer as the club eye up a deal to sign the youngster. Hoever has been impressing for Ajax’s academy, attracting interest from Liverpool as they look to bolster their youth ranks. The 16-year-old is a regular international for Holland’s under-16 side, where he has shown his quality at right-back. He has also shown his versatility with Ajax, as he has lined up in the heart of the defence, as well as at fullback. This comes after Liverpool completed the signing of Isaac Christie-Davies from Chelsea earlier this week on a free transfer. The highly-rated youngster was snapped up by Liverpool after a trial with the club, much like Hoever is expected to.

Liverpool youngster Liam Millar is said to be closing in on a move to League One side Sunderland.

Millar, who was in fine form for the club’s Under-18 and Under-19 sides throughout the course of last season, is claimed by the Northern Echo to be on the verge of arriving at the Stadium of Light.

The Canadian international has often been tipped for big things on Merseyside but it seems in his efforts to accelerate his pursuit of first-team football, he will swap Liverpool for Sunderland.

It’s thought that Millar will initially become a member of the Black Cats’ youth setup, but there are plans in place for him to be integrated into the first-team under Jack Ross if he impresses.

The 18-year-old attacker was in fine form last term and scored a total of 19 goals in all competitions.

His impressive form at youth level with the Reds earned him a shock debut on the international stage with Canada, as he featured in his country’s clash with New Zealand earlier this year.

Bogdan set for Hibernian move .
Liverpool goalkeeper Adam Bogdan is set to sign for Scottish side Hibernian on loan. According to The Mirror, Bogdan is closing in on a switch to Scotland in a move to find regular game-time. The 30-year-old has been at Liverpool for three seasons, making two Premier League appearances in that time. This was after eight years with Bolton, where he made over 100 appearances in the Premier League and Championship. Liverpool are looking for a new goalkeeper to join the club this summer as they seek to replace number one Loris Karius after his high-profile errors in the Champions League final. Young Welsh international shot-stopper Danny Ward could step up and replace Bogdan as Jurgen Klopp’s third choice goalkeeper. Bogdan has been capped 20 times by Hungary at senior level since breaking through in 2011. He also made 17 appearances on loan to Wigan in 2016.
