Liverpool based portal, This Is Anfield, have broadcasted the news from the Spanish publication Diario de Mallorca regarding the agreement between Liverpool and Fortaleza C.E.I.F. for the talented right-back Anderson Arroyo.

The 18-year-old full-back has already had a trial period with the Merseyside club back in 2016, so Liverpool staff is very well aware of Arroyo’s potential.

Arroyo is an attacking right-back with tremendous potential. He can cover both wings and possesses fantastic crossing ability.

Jurgen Klopp has troubles with Alberto Moreno, who underperformed this season, but the Colombian starlet would hardly be ready to play in the first team this season.

The Merseyside club will most likely send Arroyo back to Fortaleza on loan until the end of the season to gain experience and develop his talent.

According to the latest reports, the prosperous defender will sign a contract with the Premier League heavyweights as soon as he secures a UK work permit.
