Our Liverpool fans here in the Transfer Tavern are very excited about the latest crop of youngsters coming through the ranks and are hoping to see them for many years to come gracing the Anfield turf.
Liverpool at the moment seems to have a decent pool of young British talent to coming through, who’ll be all looking to emulate the likes of Steven Gerrard and Michael Owen. Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp looks as if he will give youth a chance in his team, which can only benefit everybody involved.
However, if the Reds are to step up in levels to bridge the gap to Champions Man City, then Klopp could be looking to invest big in the summer months, something that FSG may not fully be behind.
Indeed, there are a couple in particular that are really making the regulars excited at the thought of them breaking into this current Liverpool team, one that surely any youngster would be eager to get involved in.
In order for these two players to grow, a time gaining much needed first team minutes and experience is vital at this stage of their careers and under the expert eye of Klopp, they will benefit hugely, which has got to be FSG’s selling point.
With that in mind, our landlord takes a look at TWO of Anfield’s youngsters that will be exciting the Kopites already…
OUR VERDICT – Rhian Brewster & Conor Masterson
The England striker won the U17 World Cup last year and was the competition’s leading scorer, seriously exciting our resident Reds. With that in mind, many have tipped Brewster to go on to big things and a few first team starts could be just the thing he needs to keep his early career momentum going.
With a keen eye for goal, Brewster will certainly give Klopp a different problem to consider, although for him to move above any of Klopp’s current first team strikers, he has to take his chance when given it.
Following a move from Lucan City, Masterson has played 17 times so far in the u23’s this season. With the capture of Virgil Van Dijk, Klopp may look to fuse together a new partnership at the back going forward. Alongside the Dutchman, a new partnership may emerge for those at Anfield at long last.
A mix of experience and youth may be the way forward for Klopp as he aims to eradicate last seasons’ early defensive problems and work on building a proper foundation.
