Abubakar hopeful of Reds move

ESPN staff

Ghana Under-20 midfielder Mumuni Abubakar is hopeful of securing a move to Liverpool, following a recent trial at Anfield.

Reds boss Kenny Dalglish invited Abubakar to Merseyside for a trial after being tipped off by his scouting network.

The 18-year-old, who plays for New Edubiase United, spent a fortnight working with Liverpool and feels he made a positive impression on the coaching staff.

"They were impressed by my performances during training and the match that I played," Abubakar told Joy Sports. "The technical team like my style of play, so hopefully they will sign me.

"When you go to trials, they talk to your agent and not you the player. Liverpool is talking with my agent (Oliver Arthur) now. They're impressed with my performances so we should get a favourable response."
