Liverpool star: 'Spectacular' German striker can be Anfield hit

Teenage Liverpool striker Samed Yesil continues to impress in the youth ranks for both club and country and, according to Nuri Sahin, the German will be a success at Anfield.

The 18-year-old scored twice against the Republic of Ireland earlier this week to register his 31st and 32nd goals in youth football for Germany, and is surely edging closer to a Liverpool debut in the Premier League.

Yesil made his first-team bow in September as Liverpool posted an impressive win away to West Brom in the Capital One Cup, with Sahin scoring both goals for the Reds in a 2-1 triumph.

Sahin liked what he saw from Yesil during the encounter at the Hawthorns and has been keeping a close eye on the progression of the teenager during his time with Liverpool.

And, says Sahin, Yesil has all the attributes to be a success for Liverpool.

“Samed knows where the goal is,” Sahin said, as reported by the Liverpool Echo.

“He can smell the goal and that is a quality you cannot teach.

“His record is spectacular and if he continues to listen he'll be a good player for Liverpool.”

Should he continue his fine form in front of goal, Yesil is likely to feature more prominently for the Liverpool first-team this season given how short the Reds are in the forward department.

The summer departures of Dirk Kuyt and Andy Carroll, along with the long-term injury to Fabio Borini, means Luis Suarez is the only senior striker available to Brendan Rodgers at present.
