According to The Liverpool Echo, Liverpool Academy director Alex Inglethorpe has said that 22-year-old Ryan Kent is worthy of a call-up to the first team.
Kent is currently on loan with Steven Gerrard’s Rangers in the Scottish Premiership, where he is turning a lot of heads at Ibrox. The winger has bagged four goals and two assists in 14 appearances this season, and is proving to be one of The Gers’ most dangerous players down the flank.
He has certainly been impressive this season, and there is no doubt that he will get his chance with Liverpool at some point, but he may need to wait a while.
In all honesty, neither Jürgen Klopp or the Liverpool fans would want to start tinkering with their squad and trying out new players at this stage of the season. Sadio Mané seems to have his place secure on the left flank at Anfield, and Xherdan Shaqiri is an able replacement should anything happen to the Senegalese forward.
With Liverpool in their best position to win their first ever Premier League title, it would be nothing short of madness to start throwing new players into the mix, particularly as they are out of the FA Cup and League Cup. This would also entail recalling the player from his loan in Scotland, which creates further complications.
However, next season may offer Kent the chance to feature for The Reds, however, it is still unclear whether he would be able to make the sizeable step up. Unfortunately for him, he has a very tough task of trying to break into this Liverpool team.
