Ivorian superkid's Mersey move adressed
Latest news update:
The president of Stade d'Abidjan has confirmed that Liverpool have contacted his club about striker Angban Bekanty Victorien.
The striker made his mark in the Under-17 World Cup this year, while playing for the Ivory Coast, alongside Couilbaly Souleymane and Diarrassouba Drissa, who is allegedly set for a trial with Stoke City.
And numerous reports around the Ivory Coast suggest that the Merseyside giants have already agreed a fee for the 16-year-old.
The club's president, however, has refuted these claims, but has confirmed that the Reds have expressed an interest, along with a number of other unnamed clubs.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Abi Koffi Richmond revealed: "Liverpool has not agreed anything with me yet, I have nothing written.
"They are a great club and respected club, I do not need to tell them how to do their work.
"I have contact from them through some agents but they are not the only club interested in the boy."
Meanwhile, Liverpool new-boys Jordan Henderson, Stewart Downing and Alexander Doni are set to make their debuts against Hull City on Saturday night.
The latter pair did not sign in time to make the Far East tour and Henderson was rested due to his international commitments in the Under-21 European Championships.
