Liverpool Eye Cut-Price Move for Rising Fulham Starlet Cody Drameh

​Liverpool are ready to launch a summer bid for Fulham wonderkid Cody Drameh, after being impressed with multiple scout reports on the 17-year-old defender.

Drameh is yet to make an appearance for Fulham's senior side, but has been an impressive part of their Under-23s, attracting interest from teams across Europe.

​Liverpool scouts have been following Drameh's emergence and, according to the ​Daily Mail, they are ready to make a move for the right back this summer.

He has just one year remaining on his scholarship deal at Craven Cottage, and Liverpool hope that they may be able to secure a cut-price move for the youngster, who could walk away for free at the end of next season.

However, they face competition from Eintracht Frankfurt, with the ​Bundesliga also said to have taken notice of Drameh's impressive showings as of late.

Trent Alexander-Arnold

The youngster has been compared to current Liverpool star ​Trent Alexander-Arnold, thanks to his pace and desire to burst forward.

It is thought that, should Drameh join the club, he would initially spend time with the Under-23 setup, where he could form an impressive partnership with Ki-Jana Hoever. The Dutchman has been Liverpool Under-23's right-back this season, but the club see his long-term future as a centre back, which would leave a space open for Drameh.

Jurgen Klopp has proven to be willing to field young players, with Hoever already making his debut for the first team in a FA Cup tie with ​Wolverhampton Wanderers in January. The German also gave Alexander-Arnold his shot in the first team, and the 20-year-old has gone on to establish himself as one of the world's finest full-backs.

This pathway to the first team could be appealing for Drameh, who will soon have to make a serious decision over where to continue his development.

However, ​Fulham are also not afraid to play their youngsters. Ryan Sessegnon blossomed into one of the finest prospects in world football last season, whilst Harvey Elliott became the ​youngest player in ​Premier League history when he entered Saturday's meeting with Wolverhampton Wanderers just weeks after his 16th birthday.
