Contact Made: After LFC meeting, Agent confirms 'new Iniesta' is 'going to Liverpool'

Liverpool have emerged as favourites to seal a deal to coveted Nigerian attacker Chidera Ejike, who is nicknamed the 'new Iniesta'.

According to the Daily Express this week:

"Ejike [18] is set to join Liverpool and will undergo a trial next month. Talks with Man City have broken down and [he] will instead be heading to Anfield".

Ejike’s agent Babawo Mohammed confirmed the trial on Wednesday, when he told allnigersoccer.com:

“We waited for Manchester City and they did not get back to us. So I went to Liverpool and introduced Ejike to them and they gave us an invitation for two weeks trials. He is going to Liverpool next month for trials".

Mohammed also confirmed that midfielder Jacob Njoku will undergo a trial alongside Ejike:

"Njoku will travel to the United Kingdom next month along with Chidera Ejike for trials with Liverpool".

Njoku [18] is a former Porto trainee who currently plays for Al Oruba in the United Arab Emirates.

And that's all the info I've been able to find on these two, but here's a goal from Njoku, who looks like he has decent pace:
