Angban Bekanty Victorien Attracts Attention From Liverpool Boss Kenny Dalglish

In an effort to build top talent for the future, Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has explored the possibility of adding Angban Bekanty Victorien in a transfer deal with Stade d'Abidjan, a club in the Ivory Coast, according to liverpoolfc.tv.

The 16-year-old starred for the Ivory Coast in the Under-17 World Cup along with fellow phenoms Coulibaly Souleymane and Diarrassouba Drissa. Adding Victorien to Liverpool would bode well for the future of the club.

While there had been reports that a deal had already been struck, Stade d’Abidjan boss Abi Koffi said nothing has been agreed on yet.

"Liverpool has not agreed anything with me yet; I have nothing written," he said. "I have contact from them through some agents but they are not the only club interested in the boy."
