Liverpool will have three exciting young goalscorers to pick from very soon. The Reds are blessed when it comes to academy prospects.
Layton Stewart scored his tenth goal of the season already on Saturday in a 2-1 defeat against Wolves. The Under 18 prospect is continuing his excellent form from last season when he scored 11 in 12 games.
The 18-year-old is a very, very bright prospect and one Liverpool will certainly have high hopes for. But he’s far from the only one.
Paul Glatzel got his first goal this week after missing a year through injury. He’s essentially the previous Stewart – he bagged 21 goals at U18 level before knee surgery in 2019.
The two Scousers are only a year apart in age and have huge futures if everything goes their way over the next few years. But once again, there’s someone else in play.

Rhian Brewster is another young player who potentially has a future with Liverpool. The Reds sold him to Sheffield United, of course, but reportedly have a buy-back clause in the deal.
Liverpool clearly still think he could make it at the club, then. But again, Brewster is a similar age to the other two – he’s still just 20.
Close to a guarantee
This is nothing but fantastic news. Liverpool have three young, talented goalscorers, all within the same age bracket, and all developed under their system.
The time will eventually come that Liverpool need a new generation of goalscorers. With these three, they come as close to a guarantee that someone will develop enough to play a key role in the first-team one day.
Liverpool’s recent record with academy graduates is excellent, after all. Trent Alexander-Arnold is a sensation, Curtis Jones looks like a fantastic talent, Neco Williams is kicking on wonderfully, and Rhys Williams is playing first-team football.
With this track record and three excellent talents, Liverpool will soon have a choice of three to find their next great goalscorer.
