According to a recent report by the Liverpool Echo, Liverpool are zoning in on a £200,000 move for Polish goalkeeper Jakub Ojrzynski during the summer transfer window. The same source has revealed that the 16-year-old shot-stopper will seal a move to Anfield from Legia Warsaw later this summer after the Reds successfully managed to fend off interest from Manchester United, Valencia and Juventus in pursuit of his signature.
Ojrzynski’s Career-Defining Move To Liverpool
It is expected that Ojrzynski will now join Barry Lewtas’ Under-18 team at Merseyside when the pre-season training kicks off in July. Liverpool have won the FA Youth Cup earlier this year so the Polish goalie will be making a switch to a team with a winning mentality.
He previously had a trial at Melwood when he was given a chance to showcase his talents under the watchful eyes of Jurgen Klopp. Now that Ojrzynski is on the verge of moving to England, he will try to follow on the footsteps of former Polish keeper and Liverpool legend Jerzy Dudek.
However, the two-time Polish Under-16 international is still quite a raw talent so he would need to work hard and improve his game to stand a chance of competing with Alisson Becker for a place in the Reds’ first-team in a few years’ time.
The Polish Keeper’s Background In European Football
Ojrzynski came through the youth system of Legia Warsaw before he finally managed to play for the Polish club’s second team earlier this year. He has made 11 appearances in the Central Youth League this term, conceding 18 goals while keeping three clean sheets.
The 16-year-old starlet needs to be more of a solid presence in between the sticks if he wants to prove his worth at the Kirby Academy. The fact that he is coming from a European league indicates that he might struggle to cope with the physicality and high intensity of English football.
Ojrzynski: A Prospect For The Future?
The addition of Ojrzynski will undoubtedly bolster Barry Lewtas’ goalkeeping options at the Merseyside club. As long as the Polish goalie is fully-committed to improving his game, he would have an excellent opportunity to use Liverpool’s world-class facilities to help him take the next step in his playing career. Thus, the Legia Warsaw talent will be a prospect to look out for in the future.
