Liverpool have officially announced the signing of Colombian Youngster Anderson Arroyo. The Reds completed the move for the defender in the winter but they didn’t make it official as there was a missing paperwork which will officially recognize him as a Liverpool player.
Having completed all paperwork, the Merseyside club via their official website announced that Arroyo is the latest defender to join Jurgen Klopp’s side from Colombian League outfit Fortaleza.
After signing a contract deal with the Reds, Arroyo was immediately loaned out to Real Mallorca in Spain’s second division so as to get a work permit before he could start playing for Jurgen Klopp’s side.
Arroyo was a trialist with Real Mallorca last year December where his impressive display convinced coach Jose Galvez Estevez that the defender could be the solution to his defensive problems but Liverpool were smart in their bid for his signature during the January winter window.
The U-20 Colombian will hope to consolidate on his playing style which have seen him rated as one of the best youngsters in the world.
Arroyo 18, can comfortably play as a wing-back, defensive midfielder and center-back. He will surely turn into a world-class defender if he remains focus on his development.
He has featured for the Colombian national U-17 side before he was promoted to the U-20 in 2017.
