Liverpool are set to sign Chelsea midfielder Isaac Christie-Davies on a free transfer, according to a report from ESPN.

The 20-year-old was not offered a new contract by Chelsea and Liverpool swooped in earlier this year to offer him a trial ahead of other interested clubs.

It seems like he impressed the academy staff at Liverpool whilst on trial as they look set to offer him a contract.

Christie-Davies will become the second young player, after Dominic Solanke, to join the Reds from Chelsea in just two years.

However, whereas Solanke went into the Reds first-team, Christie-Davies looks like he’ll join up with the academy squad.

Also, Liverpool were required to pay a fee for Solanke as he was offered a deal at Chelsea, but they’ll get Christie-Davies for free as he was not offered a contract with the London club.

The midfielder, who won two FA Youth Cups and the UEFA Youth League at Chelsea, should be announced as a Liverpool player in the coming days.
