Liverpool are off to the USA next week for their pre-season tour of the States and there are three players that you need to keep an eye on.
This summer has already seen fans thrilled as nine goals have been scored in two games against domestic outfits Tranmere Rovers and Bradford City but there are still several games in just a few weeks before the start of the pre-season.
Across the next three and a half weeks there are three players that you need to keep an eye on as they look to prove to Jurgen Klopp that they deserve a spot in his squad for the 2019/20 season.
The 19-year-old has already scored three goals this summer and will look to use the likes of Napoli to prove that he’s not just scoring for fun because of the level of opponent he’s currently coming up against.
The highly-rated Academy product has demonstrated his poaching instinct in the box twice already over the last two weeks which means that Liverpool have an internal replacement for Daniel Sturridge on hand already.
He’s set to be a part of the first team setup this season and now needs to prove that he is a better option off the bench late on in games than the likes of Xherdan Shaqiri and Divock Origi.
A player that has already done his reputation wonders is Larouci and he very nearly scored a looping effort from around 3o yards against Bradford City following a driving midfield run but was denied by a stunning save.
The left-back has done more so far this summer to make a case that he is the right fit for Klopp’s side when compared to Adam Lewis, who gave away a penalty against Bradford on Sunday.
Of course, two 45-minute cameos don’t tell the full story and the Algeria born fullback will no doubt be one to keep an eye on over the coming weeks.
The final player in this list is a more familiar name and one that has been linked with a return to Rangers, with Steven Gerrard keen on taking the winger back to Ibrox.
Blessed with the ability to impact the game with both feet, insane pace and a silky dribbling style, the 22-year-old is running out of time to prove that he is worthy of a place at Anfield.
He will no doubt be desperate to prove to Klopp that he should be kept on beyond this summer.
