It seems like Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp is on to something big. The German had his impact in the Premier League soon after his arrival, and his effect was clearly seen as the same players, who failed under Brendan Rodgers gave some breathtaking performances.
Coming towards the end of the previous campaign, the Merseyside club became the most dominating side in the Europa league as they defeated their arch rivals Manchester United with a complete humiliation, then an astonishing performance against Borussia Dortmund stunned every spectator.
Well, it was sad to see the side losing in the final game of the tournament, but during the journey, the side made it very clear that they will be coming stronger than ever in the next campaign. Liverpool failed to qualify for the Champions League or the Europa League and that could be a blessing in disguise for the side, as their manager can concentrate on the league as well as on the fitness of the players (for assessment of course).
Now, with the transfer window approaching, the German gaffer will have to look for the players, who could join the side accepting the fact that there will be no European nights at Anfield. Liverpool have identified many targets for the summer, but we cannot overlook the fact that the Merseyside club possess a lot of midfielders and most of them are still youngsters.
So, here we give you three names, who Liverpool could send on loan for further improvement:
In the beginning of the 2015-16 season, the English U-19 international was sent on loan to Wolverhampton, but in January 2016, he was recalled by the newly appointed manager Jurgen Klopp. Soon after his arrival, his debut came for the side as a substitute in the FA Cup third round match against Exeter City and the 19-year-old scored in the replay of the same round a month later.
Ojo made 8 appearances for the side in the Premier League last season, and was always used as a second option behind Coutinho and Lallana. Ojo has his talent there is no doubt about it, but a loan spell with a different club, where he could get more game time would surely help the 19-year-old in the future.
The Manchester born central midfielder joined Liverpool at the age of five and became a regular starter for the team’s U-21 side. The 20-year-old made his senior debut for the side in 2015 on their opening UEFA Europa League group stage fixture against Bordeaux as he came on as a substitute. Jürgen Klopp described Brannagan as a real talent who has “everything you need” from a midfield player.
Brannagan made just 9 appearances for the Merseyside club last season, and with the rumours suggesting the arrival of some top quality midfielders, it is understood that Brannagan’s playing time will be stalled. There is no doubt that he will get his chances, but those will be very limited. And that’s why we think, it would be a better option to send him on loan to a side, where he could get a regular game time.
The 20-year-old English defender joined Liverpool at the age of six. The strong and versatile defender captained Liverpool’s U18 side and became a regular member of the U21s since 2013. He spent a short loan stilt with the League wwo side Shrewsbury Town as he signed a one-month loan deal. Back in October 2015, Randall made his senior debut for the side and two months later, he helped his side to thrash Southampton by 6 goals to 1 at St. Mary’s.
It is understood that the 20-year-old’s playing time will be cut short due to the amazing performance of Clyne and besides that, Flanagan will also be looking to fight for the same position as Randall’s. The Englishman is surely a good defender, but his progress might stall if he stays at the club. A loan deal to another club would be a perfect choice for the player as well as the club.
