Liverpool 'complete £1.5m transfer of Ghana wonderkid Abdul Fatawu Issahaku' as club confirm sale

LIVERPOOL have completed the signing of midfielder Abdul Fatawu Issahaku, according to the selling club's chairman.

The Premier League giants are believed to have paid £1.5million for the Ghanaian wonderkid.

Steadfast FC's chairman Haruna Iddrisu claims Liverpool have signed Issahaku on a five-year deal and loaned him to Portuguese champions Sporting Lisbon.

It is believed Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen pulled out of a deal to sign the player and the sale has made the club more than €1m.

Iddrisu told Football Ghana: "When I started negotiation for Abdul Issahaku Fatawu’s move to abroad, it started from more than €1m and this means if we get corporate sponsorships, we can do better.

"We need to do more to make our football attractive and by doing that we get more hands-on board to sponsor our football because on weekends, football is the business everywhere so I am pleading to the corporate world.

"I am doing Steadfast for the love of football and for the people of my home town."

The 17-year-old has enjoyed a remarkable rise in Ghana, earning his first call-up to the senior squad in March 2021.
