BBC Journalist Claims Liverpool Are “Close To Agreeing A Deal” For West Ham Star

Liverpool are “close to agreeing a deal” for former West Ham defender Grace Fisk, according to BBC Sport journalist Emma Sanders.

The 25-year-old left the Hammers at the end of last month, and she is currently available on a free transfer.

Fisk started her career with Millwall Lionesses, playing in the WSL 2 for three seasons before she headed to the United States to take part in college football. Whilst across the pond, she still played for England at youth level, helping the U20s reach the semi-finals of the World Cup in 2018.

West Ham snapped her up on her return to the UK at the end of 2019. Within a couple of months, she had been called up by England’s senior side for the SheBelieves Cup but she never made it on the pitch during the tournament.

Fisk has been a regular starter for the Irons over the last three and a half years but she is now looking for a new club, with the Reds favourites to secure her signature.

Liverpool are making big moves in the transfer market

Matt Beard’s side have already signed Natasha Flint from Leicester City, with the club having confirmed the news on Wednesday afternoon.

As we have mentioned, a move for Fisk is in the works, but the Merseyside club are also reportedly keen on signing three other players this summer.

Goalkeeper Teagan Micah is said to be another target for the Reds, with the Australian international having finished her two-year stint at Swedish side Rosengard. Whether an agreement can be reached before the World Cup starts later this month, we shall have to wait and see.

Glasgow City and Scottish international defender Jenna Clark could join in the next few weeks, while a deal for Sheffield United youngster Mia Enderby is being explored as well.
