Liverpool are on their way of lifting the Premier League trophy after a 30-year wait. Yet, they will be looking to sparkle again and defend the crown next season.
The league 2019/20 winners have been linked with a number of stars, including Kalidou Koulibaly, Thiago Alcantara, Jadon Sancho and Kylian Mbappe. However, the club boss Jurgen Klopp has already confirmed that none of them will join the Reds. It is mainly connected with the club’s financial conditions due to the coronavirus outbreak. Instead, they will focus on young talents.
Klopp has already shared his thoughts on the club teenagers and their role in Liverpool development, saying: “We cannot spend millions and millions and millions because we want to or we think it is nice to do. We never wanted that. We want to strengthen this squad and this squad is strong. The problem with a strong squad is how do you improve a strong squad in the transfer market? It works with money, obviously, that is possible. But it never works only with money. You have to be creative and we try to be creative. We try to find solutions internally and there is still a lot to come: we have three or four players who can make big steps.”
Klopp’s coaching policy will have a huge impact on both the team and the youngsters personally as they will be given a chance to push themselves to the first-team squad.
Here are 5 Liverpool teenagers that could follow Trent Alexander-Arnold and sparkle at Anfield next season.
The 20-year-old is currently playing on loan for Swansea in the Championship. He has scored 6 goals in 13 league appearances for his side.
After a progressive loan spell, he would return to Anfield with more experience and will have all chances to become one of Liverpool’s key players.
The Reds will have high hopes on the English professional, with Klopp, as well as his former U-18s coach, Steven Gerrard, heaping praise on him.
