Liverpool announce player sale, they've reportedly been paid 12 times what they spent on him

Liverpool have announced the sale of goalkeeper Kamil Grabara to FC Copenhagen.

The 22-year-old goalkeeper, who spent five years on the Reds‘ books, leaves for £3million, according to the Liverpool Echo.

The deal reportedly includes a 20 percent sell-on clause.

Grabara, a Poland Under-21 international, joined Liverpool from Ruch Chorzow in 2016 for a reported £250,000 (The Guardian).

Linking up with the Reds academy, he represented the Under-18s, Under-19s and Under-23s sides during his first two seasons on Merseyside.

Grabara also trained regularly with Jürgen Klopp’s first team and featured during their pre-season programme ahead of 2018-19.

He had three loan stints while on Liverpool’s books – two at Denmark’s AGF Aarhus and one with Huddersfield.

However, with Caoimhin Kelleher and Adrian both signing new contracts at Anfield, Grabara would’ve remained low in the pecking order.

The Liverpool Echo, citing club insiders, claims Grabara had wished to leave the club in search of first team football.

His desire is reportedly to fight for a place in the senior Poland national team alongside Wojciech Szczesny and Lukasz Fabianski.

“Everybody at Liverpool FC wishes Kamil all the best for the future,” the club said in a statement.

Grabara’s £3m sale means the Reds have reportedly earned 12 times what they initially paid for him.
