Liverpool in talks for young Hammer

Fabrizio Romano says he Understands that Liverpool are in talks to sign 16 year -old young centre back Amara Nallo from West Ham.

The English defender joined the West Ham academy as a part of a full-time scholarship contract alongside 11 other young talents.

Former West Ham striker and current U-16 coach of the Hammers, Carlton Cole praised Amara by saying,

“I would describe Amara as a Rolls Royce of a centre-back. He has a great left foot and is elegant when he moves with the ball. He can play the ball with both feet and has been working on his heading as well. He’s a player who has a high ceiling.”

He has already played two games for West Ham U-18 team in the U-18 PL. The Hammers are known for producing promising talented players and the 2006-born defender is definitely one of them.
Under  the Premier League’s Rules and Regulations, a club signing a player under the age of 24 is (subject to the former’s club’s compliance with certain requirements) obliged to pay compensation to the former club for its training and development of the player.

It’s important to stress at the outset that compensation is not due in lieu of the transfer fee that would be payable if the player were under contract. The compensation is of an entirely different nature and the player’s perceived ‘market value’ and transfer fee comparables are irrelevant. Instead, the compensation is payable solely to compensate the former club for its training and development of the player, the rationale being that clubs should be rewarded for bringing through talent and incentivised to continue doing so.

The compensation fee payable by the new club is such sum as is agreed between the two clubs or, in default of agreement, “such sum as the Professional Football Compensation Committee on the application of either Club shall determine.” The PFCC considers nine factors – eight under Regulation 3 of the PFCC’s Regulations plus, under Regulation 4, the costs incurred by both clubs in the training and development of players. It is important that a club makes detailed submissions to the PFCC regarding each of those factors.
