Liverpool have been acquiring some of the game’s brightest young talents in recent seasons. Sepp van den Berg and Harvey Elliott arrived last summer, Melkamu Frauendorf and Marcelo Pitaluga arrived this summer. According to The Athletic, Liverpool are also monitoring Louis Boyd and Ben Grist.
Liverpool teenage army
Signing wonderkids on the cheap certainly beats splashing out tens of millions on players further down the line.
The Reds have been doing just this recently, snapping up prodigies from across the globe in an effort to save money in years to come.
Billy Koumetio could well be a future first team centre back, Harvey Elliott could be successor to Mo Salah.
Marcelo Pitaluga was recently recruited as heir to Alisson Becker. The approach is ambitious but when it pays off it pays off in abundance.

Liverpool monitoring Boyd and Grist
According to The Athletic, Liverpool are monitoring Louis Boyd and Ben Grist from Grimsby Town.
The pair made their first team debuts at 15-years-old this season. Boyd made history as the club’s youngest scorer when he netted against Harrogate Town in the EFL Trophy.
Chelsea are also said to be interested in the pair of teenage starlets.
Given that Grimsby Town are facing a loss of £700k this year the club may be forced to do a bargain deal for their wonderkid duo.
What RTK has to say
This would certainly be an exciting move if Liverpool were to sign Louis Boyd and Ben Grist.
To make your first team debut at 15-years-old is incredibly impressive, they must have something about them.
Whether or not the Reds’ interest will be made concrete remains to be seen but this planning years in advance with purchases bodes well for the club.
