The Mirror have reported that Liverpool have approached an U20?s capped Ghanaian by the name of Daniel Amartey for a transfer this January.

A relative unknown, Amartey caught the eye with this rather remarkable piece of football. A bid rumoured to be in the region of £1.5m, has apparently been launched by Liverpool to add further talent to their U21 squad.

The 18 year old defensive midfielder is being reported to have said Liverpool have made a bid for him withhis agent not commenting. The 18 year old would subsequently been loaned back to Djurgårdens IF, the top division Swedish team of which he plies his trade with, due to his age and lack of EU citizenship making getting a valid working visa for the UK difficult.

Brendan Rodgers has since stated that the focus for the January transfer window would be to bring in players that can, “come straight in and improve the team” – a category which Daniel Amartey does not fall into.

Regardless however, the £1.5m outlay reportedly required would not dent Liverpool’s January transfer fundstoo much but his capture will not be high on the Red’s boss’ priority list.

How did he get to where he was?

Currently not much is known about Daniel’s time in Ghana but former Djurgårdens IF boss Magnus Pehrsson had spotted the youngster whilst on a scouting trip through Africa prior to his takeover as Manager. Pehrsson really liked what he saw of the then 16 year old, securing the future transfer rights of the player.

Following two brief spells with the u21 Djurgårdens team Daniel signed on full time with the club following his 18 birthday. He has since made 23 league appearances, credited with one assist, and 2 caps at U20 international level with a rumoured first team call up on its way

The 5 foot 11 defensive midfielder has pace, poise and strength and with Liverpool interested; his reputation and career could well be on the rise.
