Liverpool have made another young signing, this time a little known Spanish player called Nacho, according to Spanish newspaper La Tribuna de Albacete.

His current club, Albacete Balompie, who were relegated from the Segunda Division last year, have reportedly accepted a £150,000 offer for the young striker from the Merseysiders for the player.

The local newspaper that covers the Spanish club says that Nacho was signed after completing a trial with the Liverpool under-18 squad, but so far the club is yet to confirm the deal to the media.

The transfer, which could include up to £350,000 of financial add-ons, would be Kenny Dalglish’s fifth signing of the summer period, which has so far seen Charlie Adam, Stewart Downing, Doni and Jordan Henderson move to Liverpool.


Nacho would be given a good chance to develop behind the scenes at Anfield, with the Liverpool reserve side currently headed up by Spaniard Rodolfo Borrell, while the academy team's technical director is Jose Segura, another Spaniard.

Some of England's finest talent have developed through the ranks at Liverpool in recent years, including Steven Gerrard, Jamie Carragher and Michael Owen. Players in the current crop with a potentially big future include Adam Morgan and Raheem Sterling, while Suso is another Spaniard tipped for a big impact in later years.
