Agudelo: Liverpool it is for me


New York Red Bulls striker Juan Agudelo is the latest MLS player heading to England during the league's winter break, after announcing on Twitter that he will spend time training with Liverpool.

According to, the 19-year-old will spend two weeks on Merseyside after receiving a call during a stint in Germany with VfB Stuttgart.

"Flight to England tomorrow," he posted on the social networking site. "I'll keep my followers and fans on a suspenseful cliff hanger, without naming the team I will be training with yet."

However, moments later, he tweeted: "Ok... I guess a lot of people knew already. #LFC it is."

Agudelo's agent Ron Waxman denied reports that his client is undergoing a trial at Anfield, confirming via email that the young forward is 'just training' with Kenny Dalglish's Reds side.

Liverpool already have two Americans on their books, in the form of striker Villyan Bijev – currently on loan at Fortuna Dusseldorf – and midfielder Marc Pelosi, who is also on a two-week training stint at Melwood.

Having already shown potential with the USA national team, Agudelo will want to impress Liverpool, and prove he has the ability to succeed in the Barclays Premoer League, despite being left out of Jurgen Klinsmann's squad for last month's friendlies against France and Slovenia.
