The 18-year-olds, who are regarded as two of the most promising Nigerian talents, jetted into England over the weekend and have already begun training at the English club.

Mohammed, who represents both players, says his clients are looking to earn permanent deals.

“Njoku and Ejike are in Liverpool already,” he told website AllNigeriaSoccer. “We arrived in England around 2pm on Saturday, they are starting training Sunday.”

Njoku already has some experience of playing for a top-level outfit, having been at Porto before joining Al Oruba, while attacking midfielder Ejike is a product of the Gee-Lec Football Academy, and the Reds would be his first club.

The pair would go straight into the youth ranks if they are signed, with manager Jurgen Klopp looking to improve the set-up away from the senior squad.
