Premier League giants Liverpool have clinched the signing of highly-regarded talent
Abdul Fatawu Issahaku, according to reports in his home country of Ghana.
The reds are believed to have paid £1.5million for the Ghanaian wonderkid.
Steadfast FC’s chairman Haruna Iddrisu claims Liverpool have signed Issahaku on
a five-year deal and loaned him to Portuguese champions Sporting Lisbon.
Iddrisu told Football Ghana: “When I started negotiation for Abdul Issahaku Fatawu’s
move to abroad, it started from more than €1m and this means if we get corporate
sponsorships, we can do better.
“We need to do more to make our football attractive and by doing that we get more
hands-on board to sponsor our football because on weekends, football is the business
everywhere so I am pleading to the corporate world.
“I am doing Steadfast for the love of football and for the people of my hometown.”
The 17-year-old has enjoyed a remarkable rise in Ghana, earning his first call-up to the
senior squad in March 2021.
Issahaku was included in his country’s squad for this year’s U20 AFCON tournament.
And it was there that it quickly became evident just what a prodigious talent Ghana truly
has on its hands. The Steadfast man quickly went on to establish himself as his
nation’s star performer, notching two goals and an assist, en route to eventual AFCON
glory. Issahaku was even honored with the award for player of the tournament.
