Liverpool agreed a £1.3 million with FC Basel in July to part ways with 22-year-old Liam Millar after five years but they will be keeping a close eye on him.
One Basel alumni is currently tearing things up in red and his name is Mohamed Salah.
Of course, Millar has a long, long way to go before he can begin to dream of reaching the same heights as the Egyptian. But football is a rewarding sport and, if Mo can go from Basel to Liverpool (with a few clubs in between), why can’t Millar take a slightly different path to the top?
Liverpool sold him in the summer and agreed a 20% sell-on clause but, after the goal he scored on Wednesday evening, they might be wishing it was a buyback clause.
He picked the ball up well inside his own half before darting past a would-be tackler and speeding down the left flank, and it was immediately clear he was never going to be caught.
What shocked the crowd was the exceptional finish he produced from a rather tight angle to equalise with Young Boys.
It was his second goal in two games after he scored another equaliser in the 84th minute against Servette in what is becoming a handy habit of popping up with vital strikes.
If he can make a habit of scoring important goals of this kind of quality, it might not be long until he is faced with the opportunity to move to a bigger league and, potentially, one day Liverpool might be interested in him again.
