Most of the fans just love a homegrown lad as he truly embodies the soul and spirit of any club. He is the symbol that anyone can make it through the ranks despite all the obstacles put in their path. Curtis Jones and Trent Alexander Arnold have gone on to make their name as they came up through the ranks to become heroes in the local vicinity and even gone on to win major trophies along with the players that they idolised at a younger age.

Let’s see some of the other Liverpool upcoming prospects:

Mateusz Musialowski is an extremely talented teenager who has 6 goals and 2 assists to his name in 17 matches for the U-18 team. He is an excellent dribbler of the ball and can go past players with a certain ease. He even caught the eye of the media for some of his exceptional goals. Playing from the left-wing, he has a tendency to cut inside and set up a pass or a shot on his stronger right foot, and that makes him a perfect addition to the current Liverpool system.
