Liverpool snap up French teenager

Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez
Benitez is still chasing Aston Villa midfielder Gareth Barry

Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez has completed the signing of French striker David Ngog from Paris St Germain.

The highly-rated 19-year-old has penned a four-year contract at Anfield for an undisclosed fee and he is Liverpool's fourth signing of the summer.

Ngog, the cousin of former Newcastle defender Jean-Alain Boumsong, scored once in 18 games for PSG last season.

Liverpool add Ngog to their previous major summer signings Andrea Dossena, Diego Cavalieri and Philipp Degen.

Benitez is still thought to be chasing Aston Villa captain Gareth Barry and Tottenham striker Robbie Keane.

Ngog has scored goals at every youth level for France and he struck twice against England Under-19s last season.
