​Liverpool have completed their second signing of the January transfer window, acquiring 17-year-old goalkeeper Kamil Grabara from Ruch Chorzow, ​the Guardian report.

Grabara, who it is claimed will go straight into the Reds' Under-18s' squad, follows £5.1m capture Marko Grujic to Anfield, although the Serbian midfielder will return to Red Star Belgrade on loan until the summer.

Liverpool have reportedly paid £250,000 for Grabara, a Poland Under-17 international who had trails at both Manchester United and Manchester City.

Grabara is understood to have been at the Reds' Melwood training complex on Thursday to undergo a medical and finalise terms.

Liverpool have repeatedly been linked with a new goalkeeper in January, following a string of shaky performances from first choice shot-stopper Simon Mignolet.

Barcelona's German custodian Marc-Andre ter Stegen is the latest to be linked with a move to Merseyside, although manager Jurgen Klopp insisted on Tuesday he has no plans to add to his senior goalkeeping ranks.

"Our goalkeeping situation is absolutely okay. Simon Mignolet is a really, really good keeper," he told reporters after the Capital One Cup semi-final first leg victory against Stoke.

And when pressed about a move for Ter Stegen, Klopp replied: "No. [He is a] good goalkeeper, but no."


However, Liverpool's defensive crisis means that Klopp is likely to re-enter the transfer market before next month's deadline.

The Reds added Dejan Lovren and Kolo Toure to their list of absent centre-backs at the Britannia, prompting the 48-year-old to reveal: “In this moment with no centre-back fit, I would say it is a situation where we have to think about going into the transfer market, eh?

“Two weeks ago we had three centre backs, that’s a good situation, at the start of the season we had five, now we have none.”
