The 6 Liverpool youngsters next in line to break through to the first team

ThisIsAnfield.com - 4 hours 12 min ago

Liverpool saw three youngsters make their breakthrough into the first team last season, with another likely to follow. But who are the six next in line beyond those?

The Reds’ champions campaign was a long and at times strange one, with the increased demands on a side that won the Champions League last time around seeing the academy benefit.

Runs in the FA Cup and League Cup saw a number of youngsters given first-team action, albeit under the management of under-23s coach Neil Critchley—but more importantly, Jurgen Klopp also called upon his youth ranks too.

Curtis Jones and Neco Williams both finished the season with Premier League winner’s medals, while Harvey Elliott was also given one despite not qualifying based on appearances.

They are widely regarded as first-team options now, and while the player himself insists he is still in the dark over plans, Rhian Brewster could soon follow them.

But with Klopp expressing the need to “create our transfers internally” and name-checking a number of players in particular, the focus is set to remain on promotion from within.

There are six other youngsters now regularly training with the senior squad at Melwood, so who are they and what are their long-term hopes?

Position: Goalkeeper
Age: 19

Jaros has missed almost a full year of football, having suffered an elbow injury during pre-season training with the first team last summer, with it eventually requiring surgery in November.

Despite this, on his return the Czech stopper was named on the substitutes’ bench for the FA Cup fourth round replay against Shrewsbury and regularly joined Alisson, Adrian and Co. at Melwood.

With Andy Lonergan now leaving and Caoimhin Kelleher expected to go out on loan, Jaros could make up for lost time with the learning experience of travelling with the senior squad as third-choice goalkeeper.

He would merit his inclusion, too, having developed significantly since his £300,000 move from Slavia Prague in 2017, namely with his command over the penalty area.

Working with Alisson and under the tutelage of John Achterberg and Jack Robinson could boost his progress next season.

Ki-Jana Hoever

Position: Centre-back, right-back
Age: 18

Hoever has already played four times for the first team, including becoming one of the club’s youngest-ever players when he came off the bench in the FA Cup defeat to Wolves in 2018/19, but he has now fallen behind Williams.

This came with the teenager joining the Netherlands national team at the Under-17 World Cup midway through last season.

His tournament ended in the semi-finals, and on his return to Merseyside he had shuffled down the pecking order, watching Williams go on to qualify for a Premier League winner’s medal.

But Hoever’s long-term role is seen at centre-back, and despite Liverpool targeting a replacement for Dejan Lovren in the transfer market, he could make inroads in his natural position next season.

He remains a regular presence at Melwood, and having grown in stature over the past two years since his arrival from Ajax, he looks better suited to a future at the heart of the Reds’ defence.

Sepp van den Berg

Position: Centre-back
Age: 18

Van den Berg and Hoever are often lumped together when discussing the Reds’ youth prospects, for three main reasons: they’re both Dutch, they’re both defenders and they are clearly close behind the scenes at Melwood.

It could be argued that both are vying for one spot as part of the centre-back corps led by their countryman, Virgil van Dijk, but that is not necessarily the case.

Though it was a tough first season for Van den Berg at Liverpool, in which he made 23 appearances for the academy and four for the first team but at times struggled with the physicality, it will be seen as a crucial experience.

Stepping into defence for the champions of England and being expected to fill the job description is a lot different to making a breakthrough for a side in the bottom half of the Eredivisie, as he did with PEC Zwolle.

Instead, a slower adaptation period is likely, and a new signing will hopefully be brought in not to block the pathway of Van den Berg and Hoever—who should still get chances in 2020/21—but to allow them further time to grow.

Leighton Clarkson

Position: Central midfielder
Age: 18

Clarkson seems to be the youngster those within Klopp’s staff are most excited about from this next group to step up, with Pepijn Lijnders describing him as “the type of No. 6 we really like” and the manager explaining that is the position “where he is calm.”

To pigeonhole the Clitheroe native as a No. 6 at this stage in his development would be wrong, however, as there are many different roles he could fill in the first-team squad.

“I’d say I can play a variety of the midfield positions,” Clarkson told LiverpoolFC.com in May. “I can play as a No. 6, a No. 8 or as a No. 10.”

The teenager summarised his approach succinctly by adding “I’m a passer really,” and this is reinforced by a squad-high 13 assists for the academy in 2019/20.

It is likely that due to his diminutive stature, robustness and technical quality, Clarkson will settle into a role similar to Naby Keita or Gini Wijnaldum.

And while the competition is strong, a new long-term contract at the end of the season is an indication of the club’s belief in him, and after training at Melwood for much of last season, Clarkson could step up further in 2020/21.

Jake Cain

Position: Central midfielder
Age: 18

Like Hoever and Van den Berg, Clarkson and Cain go hand-in-hand when considering Liverpool’s next generation, having developed a strong bond over their almost 10-year partnership in the academy midfield.

While Clarkson has grown into the creator, however, Cain is finding his niche as an all-rounder; if his close friend ends up as a No. 6, the Wigan-born teenager will most likely settle as a No. 8.

No player made more appearances than Cain across Liverpool’s under-23s, under-19s and under-18s last season, and only two—Jones (27) and Layton Stewart (23)—contributed more goals and assists combined for the youth ranks.

Along with his eight goals and 11 assists, Cain also played the full 90 minutes on his senior debut against Shrewsbury in February, and after a strong display at Anfield he has now established himself as a staple at Melwood.

His trademark is becoming a whipped finish as the ball sweeps across him, but more likely to catch Klopp’s eye is his ability to press and harry in the final third.

Paul Glatzel

Position: Striker
Age: 19

Glatzel finds himself in a very similar position to Jaros in terms of catching up, having also suffered a season-spoiling injury while on first-team duty last pre-season.

But having recovered from his ACL blow, the striker is back with the senior squad and could battle to be an option alongside the likes of Elliott and Brewster.

A natural finisher, Glatzel stands out from many of his academy counterparts in that he is equally adept at creating, and his selflessness extends to a high-intensity pressing approach in attack.

Given his age, it is unlikely Glatzel has lost any pace due to his injury, but as his strength is largely in his intelligence, that should not be a major issue regardless.

Klopp has taken a liking to the young Scouser, and the club showed their faith in him with a new long-term contract in September—now he can look to make up for lost time at Melwood.

Reported LFC target Thiago puts in impressive showing, “this man is brilliant”

ThisIsAnfield.com - 4 hours 57 min ago

Thiago has been an ever-present name throughout the transfer window for Liverpool thus far, and his most recent performance continued to set tongues wagging as Bayern dismantled Chelsea.

The Reds’ links with the central midfielder have seen various claims emerge as to the state of play, but no concrete confirmation of the club’s interest has been made public.

But Bayern are now said to be resigned to losing the Spaniard and it is claimed that they have dropped their asking price to £27.2 million.

While left-back Kostas Tsimikas is expected to arrive imminently, a quiet summer is expected once more, with outgoings likely needed to fund such a move for the Bayern man.

But the thought of adding Thiago to Liverpool’s ranks is one which continues to excite, especially after his display against Chelsea in the second leg of their Champions League last 16 tie.

Thiago was the dominant force in Bayern’s lineup as they swept Frank Lampard’s side aside by a score of 4-1 on Saturday evening and with an aggregate of 7-1, showing off an all-round game which would be an ideal fit for Liverpool’s midfield:

[embedded content]

A man to set the tempo, protect the back-line, link up with the attack and press, a silky operator who can use both feet – for lack of a better word, technically gifted.

He played 71 minutes against Chelsea, withdrawn with the scoreboard reading 2-1, where a matchup against Barcelona now awaits on Friday.

And after watching on as Thiago worked his magic and pulled the strings, there was obvious reasons to be excited about his potential at Anfield:

Unlikely Thiago signs but I’ve seen reds say Naby & Thiago can start same time due to our FB. Thiago is deep playmaker & Naby very creative. Our play would go through midfield not FBs so we wouldn’t push FBs as high we only did to provide creativity after Cou left. & Fekir fail.

— Homes (@LFC_Wahome) August 9, 2020

The amount of times Thiago has broken up Chelsea's play in 20 minutes. The sauce is real ??

— Ajish (@AjishPillai) August 8, 2020

This is the type of pass in the build-up to the first goal that makes Thiago a world class player, but doesn't show up on the assist numbers- perfectly weighted pass that penetrates two Chelsea defensive lines to find Muller in between the lines

Phenomenal playmaking from deep? pic.twitter.com/bhPGv8UTGu

Premier League Panel (@PremLeaguePanel) August 9, 2020

Thiago took out 5 chelsea players out with one pass.. This man is brilliant.

— Tutankhamun (@rileyarnie) August 8, 2020

Decided to watch Bayern 2nd half. And immediately Thiago flies into a challenge, wins the ball and Bayern have a chance that leads to a corner.

— Red (@TaintlessRed) August 8, 2020

Gini Thiago and Naby midfield 3 is illegal

— Aarøn (@AJXR45) August 8, 2020

How any Liverpool can watch Thiago here and not be gagging to sign him is beyond me, watching him here £27 million is an absolute bargain for him

— John O Sullivan (@Corballyred) August 8, 2020

He would be an ideal addition to Liverpool’s midfield, but should Liverpool’s interest be real any move for a deal would be unlikely to take place until after Bayern Munich’s Champions League campaign, with the final taking place on August 23.

Liverpool close to signing left-back Konstantinos Tsimikas

LiverpoolFC.TV - 6 hours 54 sec ago

Liverpool and Norwich have failed to reach an agreement for Jamal Lewis, with the Premier League champions close to signing Konstantinos Tsimikas as cover at left-back.

The Greek international can be secured for €13 million (£11.75) from Olympiacos, which represents better value as an option to deputise for Andy Robertson.

Norwich rebuffed Liverpool’s opening offer of £10m for Lewis, demanding at least double that fee to part with a player that won’t be short of options in the window.

Liverpool finalising £11.75m signing of left-back Kostas Tsimikas

ThisIsAnfield.com - 6 hours 42 min ago

Liverpool are in advanced talks for Olympiakos left-back Kostas Tsimikas for a fee of £11.75 million, with a medical expected early next week.

The Reds are looking to snap up a left-back at the earliest stage having identified the position as an area to bolster with Andy Robertson the only senior left-sided specialist.

And both Tsimikas and Norwich City’s Jamal Lewis had emerged as the top targets, with members of the Merseyside press name-checking the duo in the last few weeks.

The latter, however, has appeared the front runner as the Reds tabled a £10 million offer which was quickly rejected by the, now, Championship outfit last week, with Lewis eager to make the switch to Anfield.

But after Liverpool and Norwich failed to reach an agreement for the 22-year-old, the Reds shifted their focus to landing Tsimikas.

Greek outlet Sportime initially claimed Liverpool had already submitted a second and improved bid for the 24-year-old, with an offer in the region of £14.45m.

They suggested a deal is only a “matter of hours” away with the club and player having already agreed to personal terms, and now the Merseyside press has confirmed the news with the likes of Paul Joyce, James Pearce and Melissa Reddy all confirming a deal for around €13 million (£11.75m) is “close.”

Leicester had also said to be an interested party for Tsimikas with Ben Chilwell’s future up in the air, but the Reds have now jumped on a deal for the Greek international following Olympiakos’ elimination from the Europa League at the hands of Wolves.

Kop 10: Best Anfield moments of 2019-20

LiverpoolFC.TV - 8 hours 12 min ago

With the 2019-20 Premier League season now complete, here is a look back at 10 of the best moments at Anfield this term.

Jürgen Klopp’s side completed a third successive league campaign without tasting defeat on home soil, stretching the club’s unbeaten run to 59 matches.

The Reds were victorious in all but one of their Premier League contests at Anfield, a 1-1 draw with Burnley preventing the champions from boasting a 100 per cent winning record.

Here is a reminder of the drama, elation and history that took place in L4...

Milner’s ice-cool spot-kick – October 5, 2019

With time running out in a crucial match against Leicester City, up stepped James Milner.

Sadio Mane’s 50th Premier League goal for the club had fired the hosts ahead, but Liverpool were pegged back when James Maddison levelled 10 minutes from time.

Having already been on the scoresheet, Mane won a penalty in stoppage time to provide late hope.

Milner made no mistake from 12 yards out as the Reds made it eight wins out of eight.

“It was a super game. We upped the tempo. The football we played was so important,” reflected the Liverpool boss.

Reds edge 10-goal thriller – October 30, 2019

[embedded content]

Liverpool and Arsenal played out a quite remarkable Carabao Cup encounter, resulting in 10 goals scored and penalty shootout success for the home side.

Young shot-stopper Caoimhin Kelleher saved Dani Ceballos’ spot-kick, helping the Reds on their way to a 5-4 win on penalties. 

Summarising a crazy night at Anfield, Klopp said, “I can’t remember the last time I had so much fun in a football game!”

Fabinho’s thunderbolt – November 10, 2019

Liverpool moved eight points clear at the top of the table, with a Fabinho piledriver setting the tone for a pulsating afternoon of football on Merseyside.

Mohamed Salah and Mane were also on target as the Reds ran out 3-1 winners against Manchester City.

“What a game,” Klopp declared. “If you want to win against City you have to do something special and we had to be intense.”

One hundred up – December 4, 2019

Klopp celebrated a 100th Premier League triumph thanks to a convincing 5-2 scoreline in the Merseyside derby.

A Divock Origi brace and strikes from Xherdan Shaqiri, Mane and Georginio Wijnaldum made it a night to remember for the Reds, who stood firm at the top of the table.

Expressing his derby-day delight, Klopp said: “All the goals were incredible, outstanding. Wonderful goals, sensational passes, super pieces of football. I loved it a lot!”

Jones’ derby joy – January 5, 2020

In only his second start for the first team, Curtis Jones lit up Liverpool’s FA Cup tie with Everton courtesy of a special strike.

The 19-year-old’s dipping effort found the top-right corner, booking the Reds’ place in the fourth round.

“I can’t really [describe it], no. It’s massive,” Jones reacted. “I saw the ball come and I just tried to hit it. Not for one minute did I think it would go in the way it did.”

Salah slots to sink United – January 19, 2020

Watch: The best view of Alisson's Man Utd assist for Salah

A finish of the highest order that sent Anfield into raptures.

Salah sealed a 2-0 victory over Manchester United having carried the ball forward from midfield and executed his one-on-one chance in front of the Kop.

Alisson Becker’s long kick forward found the Egyptian, who held off Daniel James before firing past David de Gea.

“It’s a big relief, I was really happy with 85 to 90 per cent of the game, we were brilliant,” said Klopp. “We dominated the game, especially in the first half. The energy they put on the pitch was incredible.”

Shrewsbury success – February 4, 2020

At an average age of 19 years and 102 days, Liverpool’s youngest-ever line-up secured FA Cup progression by overcoming a resilient Shrewsbury Town side.

Ro-Shaun Williams’ own goal was the difference in front of a sold-out Anfield.

Liverpool find a way, again – February 24, 2020

A common theme of the 2019-20 season was the champions continuing to find a way to win – no matter the circumstances.

This was clear to see once more as the Reds battled back from being 2-1 down to claim all three points versus West Ham United.

It was a night that also saw Manchester City’s top-flight record of 18 successive victories equalled.

“I never thought it would be broken or equalled,” stated Klopp on his side’s winning run. “We did it and I cannot believe it happened, to be honest. I like a lot tonight that everything positive helps.”

Reds return to Anfield in style – June 24, 2020

Having been held by Everton in Liverpool’s first game after the season restart, the Reds put in a show-stopping display to edge closer to a first league title in 30 years.

Enjoying 74 per cent possession in the match, the hosts defeated Crystal Palace 4-0 to move within two points of being crowned champions.

“Imagine how this stadium would have been full today and all the people could have experienced it live,” said Klopp.

“I don’t think the game could have been better because my boys played like everybody was in the stadium. The atmosphere on the pitch was incredible. That was the best counter-pressing game I have ever seen.”

A 30-year wait comes to an end – July 22, 2020

A special night for Liverpool Football Club.

The Reds’ 30-year wait to become champions of England for a 19th time was over, with Jordan Henderson the man to take charge of the title celebrations after a 5-3 win over Chelsea at Anfield.

Sir Kenny Dalglish, who made Henderson his first signing in his second spell as Liverpool manager, embraced the club captain on his way to raising the Premier League trophy aloft.

A season filled with quality, determination and character-defining moments had led the runaway leaders to this point.

“These boys are so special,” the boss said. “I couldn’t be more proud of them throwing in a performance like this tonight on the pitch in an open game, obviously, but nice, nice goals. Incredible goals, super football in moments and I loved the game so we could enjoy so far and will enjoy the rest of the night.”
