Europa League champions Villarreal as well as Portuguese giants Sporting Lisbon are on the heels of Ghanaian teenager Abdul Fatawu Issahaku.
The 17-year-old midfielder is currently the hottest prospect on the African continent and has been linked with several across Europe in the impending transfer window.
Some news outlets in Ghana came out that Liverpool had swooped in to take the player from Ghanaian club Steadfast FC after a move to Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen failed due to a supposed greedy agent.
Credible reports from Merseyside on Monday evening indicated that Liverpool have not showed interest in the player and there has even been no contact.
Sportsworldghana.com can confirm that the player will be heading to either Spain or Portugal with Villarreal or Sporting Lisbon being the club he will sign for as they are in negotiations with his representatives.
