Liverpool have completed a deal for highly-rated Polish goalkeeper Kamil Grabara, 16, from Ruch Chorzow.

This is according to multiple sources, including both the Guardian and the Mirror, who understand the teenager was at Melwood on Wednesday to finalise personal terms and undergo a medical.

Grabara, who has cost Liverpool £250,000, becomes Jurgen Klopp’s second signing of the January transfer window following the arrival of Marko Grujic from Red Star Belgrade.

However, while Grujic has been loaned back to his former employers until the end of the 2015-16 campaign, Grabara is expected to go straight into the academy system at Anfield.

Ruch Chorzow club president Dariusz Smagorowicz recently confirmed Liverpool’s interest in the talented ‘keeper, telling reporters: “Grabara has been with us for 12 years. A few months ago we signed a contract with him to keep him until 2018, and now Liverpool want to have him.”

New Jerzy Dudek?

Liverpool will be hoping Grabara goes on to enjoy the same level of success as Jerzy Dudek, the Polish goalkeeper who memorably helped the Reds win their fifth European Cup against AC Milan in Istanbul back in 2005.

Pressure on Simon Mignolet

The youngster’s arrival will also put pressure on Liverpool’s first-choice goalkeeper Simon Mignolet, whose position at Anfield could be under threat following a series of unconvincing displays this season.

Klopp, however, reiterated earlier this week that he has the utmost faith in the Belgium international, describing him as a “really, really, really good keeper."

That Liverpool have beaten both Manchester United and City to Grabara’s signature suggests it won’t be too long before he’s competing for Mignolet’s place at Anfield.
