There are at least seven youngsters who could leave Liverpool on loan this summer, according to reports. The Reds aren’t through for 2022.
This comes from Goal. They claim that there are six youngsters at Liverpool who could leave on loan before the transfer window closes.
Rhys Williams, Sepp van den Berg, Leighton Clarkson, Jake Cain and Paul Glatzel all spent at least a portion of last season out on loan and likely will again next season. Owen Beck is near a deal with Famalicao, too.
Then there’s Tyler Morton, who enjoyed a first-team breakthrough last term. He featured in every competition for Liverpool, including a Champions League start. The Reds will now hope to find him regular senior football for 2022/23.
Liverpool youngsters to leave on loan
Several youngsters are already out at other clubs, of course. Marcelo Pitaliga is at Macclesfield Town, Billy Koumetio is at Austria Wien, Adam Lewis joined Newport County, James Balagizi is with Crawley Town, and Conor Bradley joined Bolton Wanderers.
Pitaluga aside, all have played at least one first-team game for Liverpool.
The Reds have enjoyed some success with these loans in recent years. Van den Berg is actually a fine example of someone who did very well with a temporary spell, having spent 18 months with Preston North End.
But Harvey Elliott is perhaps the finest. His time with Blackburn Rovers was a springboard into the Liverpool first-team squad and there are very high hopes for him.
Neco Williams is another you can point to as a success story. He just won the Championship with Fulham and saw his value skyrocket. Now Nottingham Forest could sign him for £17m in a massive win for the academy.
And so this next batch of youngsters could follow down a similar path. Even if it’s not a future with Liverpool that follows, they get opportunities to seriously improve their standing in the game.
