Following the news that emerged from Spanish football website ‘Neuvo Football’ that Liverpool were on the verge of signing two wonderkids from Malaga, Scott Taylor (@ScottTaylorUK) looks at the dynamic duo in further detail and as always gives his own opinion on the matter.
The first is a 15 year old forward called Kuki Salazar and yes, he is the son of Jose Salazar, who graced Albacete with his unstoppable free-kicks. Kuki is one of the highest regarded youngsters from Malaga’s Youth Honour Division and Brendan Rodgers’ side may latch onto him soon, when he becomes 16. Like we saw with summer signings Pedro Chirivella and Sergi Canos, 16 is an age when it is usual for the player to move but after all it is up to his family to decide whether a move is possible, but with the major Spanish speaking influence in Merseyside, settling in shouldn’t be a problem for Salazar. His predominant position is a forward, and has many developed attributes. For Example, he is an intelligent forward, like many Spanish forwards and he has the ability to make runs, and get in behind the opponents defensive line. More importantly however, he knows where the back of the net is, like his fellow Uruguayan Luis Suarez. The only other potential barrier stopping the move apart from the relocation is that he knows he has to wait until he is 20 or older to have a real chance of shining with the first team in the Premier League, something that may tempt top him to stay and develop at Malaga until he is the right age to move on.
The second ‘wonderkid’ to be linked with a move to Liverpool is 14 year old Alfredo Manuel De Sousa Silva. The Portuguese man also plays for La Liga side Malaga and his preferred position is a forward whether it will be on the right or on the left hand side, but due to him being so young, it is hard to find much more information on the starlet but the future certainly looks bright for these Malaga starlets.
