Liverpool have plenty of talented youngsters in their ranks, but it is a battle to grab a spot in the first team.
Jurgen Klopp is more inclusive of the academy stars than perhaps other managers at rival clubs.
However, given that the Reds are fighting for the Premier League title this season, Klopp may not be too open to throwing in an inexperienced star.
In order to help the young guns progress, though, Liverpool have sent a number of them out on loan.
Ben Woodburn, Harry Wilson and Ryan Kent are among them, and the latter made headlines on Sunday.
The 21-year-old scored his third goal of the season for Rangers, who sealed the winger’s signature on a year-long loan in the summer.
Kent has been thriving under former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard at Ibrox and on Sunday the young star scored in the Gers’ 4-1 victory over Hamilton.
On Twitter, plenty of Liverpool fans posted their thoughts, with some concerned that Kent will choose to sign for Rangers permanently.
