Amara Nallo is making serious waves at Liverpool after he moved to Anfield from West Ham in the summer.
The 16-year-old joined Liverpool in the summer, just months after agreeing a scholarship deal with West Ham.
West Ham have lost some truly top young talents over the past year or so, including the likes of Jamal Baptiste, Sonny Perkins and Aji Alese.
Nallo is another one who slipped through our fingers and it seems as though he has already made a big impression on Merseyside…
Teenager Amara Nallo is making serious waves with Liverpool
The 16-year-old has been promoted to the under-21s and featured for them against Monaco in the Premier League International Cup yesterday (liverpoolfc.com).
The young centre-back clearly has everything needed to go on and become an elite player in the Premier League.
Carlton Cole once described him as a Rolls Royce of a defender (Metro).
He was actually set to be handed a professional contract by West Ham in November, when he is set to turn 17.
However, he will now sign a five-year contract with the Reds when that time comes, according to Liverpool site DaveOckop.
Amara Nallo is obviously making serious waves at Liverpool. It’s just such a shame that we were unable to keep him in East London.
In fairness to West Ham, we were powerless to stop him from joining the Reds in the end.
The Hammers will be due to receive compensation from Liverpool through a tribunal. At least that will soften the blow of losing such a top talent.
