Ben Woodburn caught the eye less than two years ago when he became Liverpool’s youngest ever scorer after netting against Leeds United in a League Cup clash that ended 2-0 to the Reds.
The attacking player, who can play on either wing or as a number 10, was 17 years and 45 days old when he opened his scoring account on November 29, 2016.

Since then, the Wales international has struggled to hold down a regular spot in Jurgen Klopp’s team.
With pre-season underway, the 18-year-old will hope to impress the manager and possibly gain some minutes in the first team.

However, the teenager is expected to be low down in the pecking order, which leads to questions regarding a possible loan switch.
A recent report from Goal claimed that Norwich City and Sheffield United are keen on signing the youngster on loan.
On Twitter, Liverpool fans debated whether it is best for Woodburn to gain experience elsewhere, or try to fight for a place in Klopp’s team.

Loan him – but with guarantee for playing time

I was surprised when he didn’t get any minutes other than a few against Brighton towards the end of last season. So much potential but needs more chances in the first team #LFC
