Liverpool lay out first-team plan for Conor Bradley after 'superb' season

Liverpool reportedly have plans to promote Conor Bradley to the first-team this summer, with the teenager thriving out on loan this season with Bolton Wanderers.

According to the Athletic, the Reds plan to integrate the 19-year-old into Jurgen Klopp’s squad in pre-season this summer, with Bradley already being viewed as a potential backup for Trent Alexander-Arnold.

The 24-year-old England international has been largely untested for the right-back position since breaking into the Liverpool first-team, yet Bradley joining the fold this summer could offer some much-needed competition for Alexander-Arnold.

Labelled as ‘superb’ by Leicester City defender Jonny Evans, Bradley has been one of Liverpool’s best youngsters out on loan this season, with the Northern Ireland international playing a key role for Bolton in their push for a League One play-off spot.

Having already win the EFL Trophy, Bradley will be looking to end the season with a flourish with the League One side, and a late surge for promotion could do the defender a world of good in securing a first-team spot with Liverpool next season.

Indeed, the Reds are fully aware that they need a quality backup for Alexander-Arnold this summer, and Bradley could prove to be that option if the teenager impress Klopp this summer upon his return from Bolton.

Bradley has been nothing short of excellent for Bolton this season, with the defender pushing the former Premier League side to Championship promotion and cementing himself as a regular in the Northern Ireland national team, and taking the next step with Liverpool feels like a possibility.

The Reds are desperate for a right-back to compete with Alexander-Arnold, and the teenager has all the tools needed to just that for Liverpool in pre-season, where he will be hopeful of impressing Klopp over the summer.
