Liverpool trial for Abubakar


Ghana youth midfielder Mumuni Abubakar is set for a two-week trial with Liverpool according to

The 18-year-old was recently voted the Sport Writers Association's Ghana Premier League Player of the Year for 2011, and is tipped for a bright future in the game.

Abubakar caught the eye of Liverpool scouts playing for Ghana's U20 side in Italy back in November, and Reds boss Kenny Dalglish is keen to take a closer look at the African ace, inviting him to spend some time at Anfield.

Despite his tender age, Abubakar already captains his current side New Edubiase United, and will be looking to earn himself a move to the Barclays Premier League before the close of the transfer window.

"Liverpool will assess him for ten days and then take a decision but I'm confident he's not coming back to Ghana," confirmed Fifa agent Oliver Arthur.

"I understand he had a good game yesterday [Saturday] against Medema in the Ghana Premier League and so his fitness level cannot be questioned.

"He is a promising player and I wish him all the best."
