Liverpool have reportedly missed out on Nigerian youngster Rabiu Ibrahim.

The Sporting Lisbon starlet rejected the offer of a professional contract with the Portuguese side, raising the hopes of Liverpool that they would be able to land the African ace.

However, reports in the Daily Star claim the player has rejected a potential Anfield move, selecting a switch to PSV Eindhoven over Liverpool.

It's claimed that the Merseysiders have been tracking the former Real Massamá loanee for several years now, with the Reds first taking notice of the player at the 2007 Under 17 World Cup.


Liverpool director of football strategy, Damien Comolli, has been receiving positive reports on the player's progress since arriving at Anfield, but the lure of first team opportunities appear to have drawn the player to Holland.

The move is another sign of the efforts being made by Liverpool to bring young, attacking talent to the club this summer.

Kenny Dalglish has been linked with a string of players in a similar mould, and the Liverpool boss will have to go back to his wish list after missing out on the 20-year-old.
