According to Avellino-based Irpinia News, Liverpool have agreed a deal with Anderlecht to sign Belgian playmaker Samuel Bastien this summer.

The Reds have already added goalkeeper Loris Karius, defender Joel Matip and midfielder Marko Grujic to their squad for next season, and manager Jurgen Klopp appears to be closing in on another signing.

With Simon Mignolet, Christian Benteke and Divock Origi already at Anfield, it seems that another Belgian talent is on his way to Liverpool this summer, with Samuel Bastien closing in on a move to Merseyside.

Avellino-based Irpinia News report that Avellino loanee Samuel Bastien, who is owned by Anderlecht, is set to sign for Liverpool this summer.

Bastien, 19, was on the books with Standard Liege before coming up through the ranks with Anderlecht, where he has earned recognition for the Belgian Under-19 and Under-21's.

A quick, skilful playmaker with great potential, Bastien has been out on loan in the Italian second division with Avellino this season, and the Avellino-based press believe that he won't be coming back, as he's signing for Liverpool imminently.

The report adds that Liverpool have agreed a fee with Anderlecht somewhere between €5m and €6m (£3.85m and £4.6m), with the youngster's agent finalising the deal whilst Bastien is on holiday.

Avellino are believed to have been seeking a permanent deal themselves, but Liverpool's financial muscle appears to have sealed the deal, though Bastien could be loaned out when he does arrive in England.
