Celtic trialist Kristoffer Ajer admits footballing dream is to play at Anfield

Celtic trialist Ajer wants to play for Liverpool at Anfield.

Speaking to the Daily Record, Norwegian talent Kristoffer Ajer has admitted that his dream in football is to play at Anfield, home of Premier League side Liverpool.

When asked to reveal his biggest football dream, Ajer said: “It is to walk out on Liverpool’s home ground, Anfield, and hear the supporters singing You’ll Never Walk Alone.”

Whilst that is a dream that will have to wait, Ajer could be walking out to ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ before too long, with Celtic hoping to sign him this month.

The Bhoys, who adopted the song in the same way as Liverpool did, have taken Ajer on a trial period, with a view to signing the 17-year-old midfielder ahead of some of Europe’s biggest clubs.

The youngster currently players for IK Start in his homeland, and is highly rated for his talents. Whilst not regarded as highly as kinsman Martin Odegaard, many believe Ajer will be a long-term fixture in the Norway set-up for the next 15 years or so, and Ronny Deila wants to bring the youngster to Parkhead.

The report claims that he has already trained with Barcelona and Roma, but Deila personally convinced Ajer to travel to Scotland this week for a week-long assessment at the Lennoxtown training complex.

An immediate transfer is not said to be in the works, but Ajer is sure to be the centre of a bidding war before too long considering his talents and rapidly growing reputation.

If Celtic can get in ahead of all other rivals and secure his services on a permanent basis, Ajer will be walking out to ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ before too long - just at the wrong stadium to fulfil his dream.
