Introducing: Adam Lewis as Alberto Moreno’s replacement

Introducing: Adam Lewis as Alberto Moreno’s replacement

Trent Alexander-Arnold’s rise from promising youth player to established first-team member has been rapid but thoroughly deserved, and a recent report has suggested that a similar story could be set to unfold in the coming years. 

Andrew Robertson’s immaculate form at left-back since stepping into Jurgen Klopp’s starting eleven has made him into something of an immovable force.

The Scotland international’s rise to prominence has seen him take the captain’s armband at international level following his fine form for Liverpool.

A key consequence of his progress has been Moreno’s fall into insignificance as he now finds himself surplus to requirements at Anfield.

Indeed, a recent report from Goal claims that Moreno is set to leave on a free transfer when his contract expires in 2019, paving the way for Adam Lewis to benefit from the Spaniard’s departure.

The 18-year-old left-back is a product of Liverpool’s academy who is hoping to make the grade at senior level after impressing for the U18’s.

Lewis’ marauding performances for the U18’s last season enabled him to showcase his ability at both ends of the field, with a record of 3 goals and 9 assists from just 15 appearances illuminating his quality in the final-third.

He earned a promotion to the reserve squad as a consequence and he has maintained his place this season as the first-choice left-back.

Although he is yet to break into the senior squad, Lewis would be wise to take inspiration from Alexander-Arnold’s development in the past twelve months and consult his teammate for advice on how to make the transition into the senior squad.

Nathaniel Clyne’s absence through injury opened up the door for Alexander-Arnold last season, and Moreno’s departure could well represent the opening Lewis needs to showcase his talent at the highest level.
