Jurgen Klopp will reportedly assess Luke Chambers before deciding on whether or not to loan out the Liverpool teenager, with Bayer Leverkusen interested.
According to Kicker, the German manager has made the interesting decision to keep tabs on Chambers for the remainder of pre-season before coming to a conclusion on whether or not the fullback should leave on loan.
As per the report, Xabi Alonso’s Leverkusen are keeping tabs on the 19-year-old youngster, who is yet to even make his professional debut for Liverpool having come through the club’s academy ranks.
The defender is yet to feature for Klopp this summer, which could hint that Chambers will most likely leave Liverpool this window for Leverkusen, a move that could be extremely beneficial for the teenager.
The Bundesliga is regarded as arguably the best top-flight division in Europe for young players to gain experience and to develop their craft, and Chambers could be a good fit at Leverkusen under Alonso.

Indeed, the fullback might not be a regular for the former Liverpool maestro, but learning Alonso’s style of play and training with a top club like Leverkusen will go a long way in aiding Chambers’ development.
Klopp should greenlight Chambers’ loan departure from Liverpool
Labelled by Kilmarnock manager Derek McInnes as an ‘outstanding’ prospect, Chambers is clearly a player who is highly-rated by the right people, and a loan move from Liverpool to Germany could be ideal for the teenager.
With the defender unlikely to break into Klopp’s first-team plans next season, spending a year in the Bundesliga and trying to play as much senior football as possible with Leverkusen could work wonders for Chambers.
The fullback is clearly a talented player, and with Klopp now assessing the youngster, it might not be long before the Liverpool boss realises that Chambers would be better off heading out on loan for the season.
