Liverpool have completed their ninth signing of the summer by snaring highly-rated teenager Elijah Dixon-Bonner from Arsenal.
The 15-year-old, who has represented England at youth level, confirmed the switch between two of the Premier League’s elite on Instagram.
He said: “I am very happy to announce my signing with Liverpool FC on a long-term deal. I am proud to be joining such a great club and look forward to starting my new journey”
A member of the Arsenal squad which competed in the Marveld U15 Tournament in the Netherlands in May, Dixon-Bonner is the youngest of Liverpool’s nine summer arrivals and follows fellow prospects Bobby Adekanye, Brooks Lennon and Joe Gomez in moving to Anfield.
That is after more familiar faces such as James Milner, Danny Ings, Adam Bogdan, Roberto Firmino and Nathaniel Clyne joined the Brendan Rodgers revolution.
Liverpool have a history of poaching young talent from the capital. Raheem Sterling joined from Queens Park Rangers in 2010, and is now expected to make a £50m transfer to Manchester City.
