Reds sign Varesanovic and Solanke

Liverpool have completed a deal to sign FK Sarajevo youngster Dal Varesanovic.

The teenager was photographed alongside club legend Steven Gerrard after putting pen to paper on a deal to make the switch to Anfield.

Spanish giants Barcelona and Croatian big boys Dinamo Zagreb were both linked with offers for the sixteen year old, but he has decided to make the move to Merseyside instead.

The ban on the club bringing in academy players does not prevent youngsters being signed from European clubs and so this move was able to go ahead unhindered.

Varesanovic has represented Bosnia and Herzegovina at under-17 seventeen level already and is said to be a promising young player who will be developed through the youth setup at the club.

Also Liverpool have confirmed that Chelsea striker will move to Anfield this Summer.

“Liverpool FC have agreed personal terms with Dominic Solanke to sign the England youth international this summer.

“The 19-year-old striker will complete the transfer to the Reds on July 1, 2017, upon the expiry of his contract with his current club, Chelsea.

“Solanke made his senior debut for the London side as a substitute in a Champions League tie in October 2014, and scored seven goals in 25 Eredivisie appearances during a productive loan spell with Dutch outfit Vitesse Arnhem in 2015-16.

“He has represented his country at every age level from U16 to U21 and is currently in South Korea for the FIFA U20 World Cup, where the forward has so far featured in all three games and scored once to help England into the knockout stages.

“Solanke, twice an FA Youth Cup champion and winner of the UEFA Youth League and U17 European Championship, will officially join Jürgen Klopp’s squad on July 1.‎”

The young Englishman is the first signing made by the club this Summer, with many expected to follow ahead of the 2017/18 season.
