Liverpool teen striker target completes 'dream' City move

Published Add your comment

Liverpool have missed out on 15-year-old Norwegian forward Bersant Celina after he signed a three-year deal with Manchester City.

The teenager is set to join-up with the Citizens in 2012 after completing his schooling, and will become part of Roberto Mancini's academy ranks at the Etihad Stadium.

"This is a childhood dream coming true," he told Drammens Tidende.

"I believe it will be very good for me."

Liverpool are reported to be one of the other Barclays Premier League clubs tracking the players progress, with Kenny Dalglish thought to be keen on adding the player to the thriving youth ranks at Anfield.


Adam Morgan, Connor Coady and Raheem Sterling are all England internationals at junior level, while Spanish starlet Suso shows the continental flare on offer at the Liverpool academy in Melwood.

Celina would have also been following in the footsteps of John Arne-Riise, with the Norwegian international enjoying a fine spell at Liverpool between 2001 and 2008.

However, Manchester City have beaten Liverpool to the signature, and will hope the player can develop during his time at the club when he moves to England.
