Player profile

Ejaria is a product of Arsenal's youth system where he failed to make the grade but the Reds were more than happy to snap him up, away from the clutches of Manchester United who were also interested in the youngster. The left-footed central midfielder went on trial at Liverpool as part of their Under-17 side that reached the final of the 2014 Aegon Futures Cup in the Netherlands. He clearly impressed and has continued to do so and was part Liverpool's 2016/17 pre-season tour in the States and on the bench at Stamford Bridge in a 2-1 win over Chelsea in the Premier League on 16 September 2016. His first competitive appearance was against Derby in in a League Cup tie on 20th September 2016, when he came on as a substitute with ten minutes remaining. Ejaria is born in London but has pledged his international future to the birth country of his parents, Nigeria.
