BRENT LATHAM – USA 10 Kit has learned that historic EPL contender Liverpool has extended an offer to U.S. U-17 midfielder Marc Pelosi.
Pelosi would join the prestigious northern England side under a deal that sources close to the player describe as “very good for him.”
The dynamic midfielder played in three of the Americans’ four games in the Under-17 World Cup in Mexico, missing out on the round of 16 clash with Germany after picking up a pair of yellow cards in the final group match.
He has also been linked to Tottenham and unidentified Bundesliga clubs, but is now likely to join the Reds in the short term.“Marc just received a very good offer from Liverpool which is great for him,” the player’s father, John, confirmed. Pelosi was yet to contract an agent so as to keep open the possibility of playing college soccer in the U.S.
That now looks unlikely for the German-American, whose dual passport status means there would be no holdups with work permits in England.
