Liverpool have finally completed the signing of Mateusz Musialowski.

The 16-year-old posted snaps while wearing the famous Red colours almost a year ago but it seems as though the final details have only just been sorted with his former club SMS Lodz.

The Polish youngster has agreed scholarship terms with the Under-18 side, and will not be able to sign on professional terms until his 17th birthday.

Musialowski is said to have cost a six-figure fee, and joins his countryman Fabian Mrozek who joined the academy set-up as recently as last month.

Liverpool Echo have reported the news that a deal was sorted some months back and the switch has now been completed.

A change on his social media suggests it was very recent that he officially joined the Premier League champions.

Although Jurgen Klopp has been coy over potential first-team additions this summer, he is keen to see the academy progress further after their recent success.

He said: “I am very confident that we can keep the team together but all the rest of the planning is ongoing without knowing.

“Three months ago nobody knew anything about how it would be and now we act a little bit like everything will be fine again. It is a little bit early to guess that.

“And in football now we get confronted with how much do you want to spend? How much can you spend if you don’t know how much you can have? That is exactly the situation.

“It is about how influential the coronavirus crisis will be on all financial parts of life.

“It’s not only football. We all will pay a bill in the end.

“Hopefully it is over soon but nobody knows exactly how big the bill will be. I think it’s completely normal in this moment that we wait a little bit longer with some decisions or just say: ‘We pause and try it again with this [squad].’ We should not start taking for granted it all will be fine.”
