The Liverpool academy is bursting with talent at the minute. The Reds have started to blood some of their brightest youngsters with Neco Williams and Curtis Jones starting to rack up Premier League appearances and Harvey Elliott featuring regularly in the cups. The standard of the youth is both a blessing and a curse with some no longer looking like making the cut, one such player is Adam Lewis. The 20-year-old left back is reportedly set for a loan move to Amiens which could earn the Reds millions in future.
No way in
It is hard to imagine Adam Lewis forcing himself into Jürgen Klopp’s first team plans any time soon given that Andy Robertson still has years left at the top and Kostas Tsimikas is there to back him up.
Furthermore we have seen Neco Williams deployed as Robbo’s backup, a sure indication of Lewis’ rank given that a player younger than him was played ahead of him and out of position.
At 20-years-old it is time for Lewis to start playing regular first team football, he’ll need to head further afield to find it.
Lewis loan to Amiens
According to James Pearce, Adam Lewis is set to join Amiens on a season long loan with a medical due to take place on Monday.
The French side were relegated from Ligue 1 last season. The club have a right to feel aggrieved by the relegation given that they were only four points from safety and had 10 games left to play.
Lewis will be looking to fire the Northern France side back into the big time following their controversial dropping into Ligue 2.
Liverpool can profit from loan
Lewis recently signed a new contract with the Reds, on the surface an odd move given that he is unlikely to have a first team future at Anfield.
However, the contract makes sense in the context of this loan move. If the Reds do want to move him on they will want to make as much money as possible from his sale.
Having years left on his contract and an impressive season of first team football under his belt will greatly increase Lewis’ value.
This loan move will be something of a shop window for the left back as Michael Edwards looks to show off the player before he goes to market.
