Ghana LFC targetLIVERPOOL are close to signing winger Christian Atsu from Porto, according to The Guardian.

The Premier League side are in talks with Atsu, who has just one year left on his current contract.

Due to his contract expiring soon, Atsu could be sold for as little as £3million. The fast and skilful winger has been tipped to become a talented star in European football.

The Ghanian international only turned 21-years-old in January, and has also been linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur, where he would be reunited with manager Andre Villas-Boas, who coached Atsu during his time at Porto.

The Portuguese club will be keen to make some money on Atsu, and won’t want to risk losing the youngster for a free transfer next summer. The £3million price tag has encouraged Brendan Rodgers, who is looking to strengthen his squad this summer.

Atsu would join a list of new Liverpool players this summer, as Rodgers looks to do his transfer business as early as possible. The Northern Irishman has already signed Kolo Toure on a free transfer, whilst he closes in on bringing Iago Aspas and Henrikh Mkhitaryan to Anfield.

Atsu could rival Stewart Downing for a place in the first team next season, as Rodgers looks to push the Reds into a European place in the table.
