Reds sign Leverkusen striker
The highly-rated youngster, who had previously been linked with
Arsenal, boasts an impressive strike rate having scored 22 goals in
26 appearances for his country at under-16, under-17 and under-18
Yesil took advice from former Liverpool captain Sami Hyypia, now
the Leverkusen manager, before making the switch.
The club say the 18-year-old has been signed initially to
bolster their youth ranks.
Yesil told the club’s website: “I am really happy about this, it
is my dream to play for Liverpool and I will give my all.
“I spoke with Sami Hyypia, he helped me. He told me very
important things about Liverpool, the quality of Liverpool and the
quality of life here, and how famous the club is.”
