Liverpool have confirmed that England attacking midfielder, James Balagizi, has signed his first professional with the club.


Liverpool stated this in a statement via the club’s official website ahead of their Premier League clash with Arsenal on Monday night at Anfield.

“The 17-year-old joined the Reds at U11 level from Manchester City.


“Balagizi, who is normally deployed as an attacking midfielder but can also play further forward, made his U18s debut as a 15-year-old last season and made an instant impact, scoring twice against Blackburn Rovers.”


Balagizi made his first U21s appearance for Liverpool when he came off the bench in the EFL Trophy earlier this week against Wigan Athletic.
