Deal Close: Chelsea midfielder on the verge of joining Liverpool

Isaac Christie-Davies is reportedly on the verge of joining Liverpool after being released by Chelsea.

The youngster completed a trial at Anfield in March and will now be offered a permanent contract, according to ESPN.

Several clubs are said to have monitored the 20-year-old midfielder since Chelsea confirmed that they would not be renewing his contract.

Christie-Davies, who joined Chelsea’s academy from Brighton, is expected to play with Liverpool Under-23s next season.

During his time in Chelsea’s youth setup, the midfielder won the FA Youth Cup in 2015 and 2016, as well as the UEFA Youth League in 2016.
