Liverpool looked to have snapped by American Macro Pelosi after the teen rejected a move to Barcelona.
The 17-year-old is rated as the best high-school footballers in the United States and is set to join the affluent youth setup at Anfield.
And Pelosi says he can't think of a better place to apply his trade than at Liverpool.
'If you don't go to Barcelona, the second-best place to develop is at Liverpool.' It's a great, top notch organisation," he said last month.
"Right now, I want to make sure that wherever I go I am in the right place where there is a balance between training and playing high-level matches. And I want to ensure I can continue my education."
Liverpool's academy director Frank McParland said: "We're determined to identify the best possible talent globally and I'm delighted we've been able to bring Marc in to the club."
