Talented French defender Koumetio is reportedly on his way to England to sign for Premier League leaders Liverpool.
The teenage centre-back is currently at US Orleans in Ligue 2 but looks set to get his big break with the Premier League leaders, having arrived in England earlier this week to discuss a potential move to Anfield.
Koumetio is understood to have caught the eye of Liverpool’s coaches after enjoying an impressive trial with the Merseyside giants back in November and it seems that he will now be rewarded with a long-term contract.
A left-sided defender, Koumetio is likely to play for the U23 side for the near future where he will be hoping to make his name alongside the likes of Rafa Camacho, Curtis Jones and 16-year-old Ki-Jana Hoever.
All three featured in Liverpool’s recent FA Cup third round defeat at Wolverhampton Wanderers so Koumetio will know that he will be given opportunities under the former Borussia Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp, who also helped launch the careers of Mario Goetze, Robert Lewandowski and Mats Hummels.
It is not mentioned how much Liverpool will pay for the exciting centre-back.
