Peruvian striker Andy Polo is set to move to Germany, according to his agent, with the youngster wanting to leave South American club Universitario de Deportes to pursue a career in European football.
At just 17-years-old, Polo is the subject of a great deal of transfer talk, with the starlet seen by many as a future world football talent.
Despite only making 15 appearances for the senior side, Liverpool and Arsenal are both keen to sign the sharp shooter, but Borja Gonzalez says his client is close to a deal in Germany.
“There are two clubs in Germany who are very interested in Andy and there is a very close agreement, in the next 48 hours they have to call me and tell me they want to do the deal,” he said.
“If all goes well on Thursday or Friday we should be close. Andy Polo will play in Europe next year.’”
Liverpool and Arsenal can’t be counted out of the race just yet though, and while Arsenal may not be willing to pay a large fee for an unproven youngster at this stage, Liverpool may be more willing to compete with German clubs at the last minute, which are said to include Hamburg and Schalke.
