Video: Liverpool sign Bobby Adekanye from Barcelona

Liverpool have signed talented Dutch teenager Bobby Adekanye from Barcelona.

The 16-year-old’s signature presents quite a coup for Liverpool, taking advantage of Barcelona’s transfer ban and signing the pacey winger ahead of interest from Ajax.

Adekanye has been likened to Arjen Robben in the Netherlands, where he moved from Nigeria aged four. He signed for Barcelona aged 12 and the Catalan giants were desperate to keep him at La Masia.

Hopefully Adekanye can turn out for Liverpool like Cesc Fabregas did for Arsenal when he moved to London at a similar age.

Adekanye joins fellow Barcelona youngster Sergi Canos at the Liverpool Academy, and has signed a three-year deal at the club.

I am very happy to sign for Liverpool ????
