Report: Klopp amazed by 19-year-old in training amid transfer rumours

Liverpool youngster Tyler Morton could be set for a loan move away from Anfield this summer.

The 19-year-old midfielder has impressed in pre-season and when given the opportunity last season.

With Liverpool’s midfield currently stacked with players, it’s likely his best bet is to move away and experience regular football.

However, Jurgen Klopp is a big fan of the midfielder and he could yet stay in the squad.

Latest reports suggest a loan move away

According to Goal, loan interest is growing in the talented young midfielder and Liverpool are willing to listen to offers.

He also completed back-to-back 90 minutes in the Champions League in what was his most impressive appearances yet.

Helping the Reds to beat Porto 2-0 at Anfield before earning plaudits at the San Siro in Liverpool’s 2-1 win over AC Milan.

Whilst featuring heavily for the U23s, Morton still managed to feature nine times for the first-team despite strong competition.

Jurgen Klopp is a big fan of Morton

Klopp has voiced his opinion across pre-season regarding the Liverpool academy prospect.

He claimed Morton was ‘absolutely exceptional‘ and even revealed that he had been training to play as a more advanced midfielder as an ‘8’.

The German could feasibly turn around and keep Morton as part of the squad which would see him feature in cup and fringe games as well as for the U23s.

After all, Jordan Henderson, Naby Keita, Thiago, James Milner and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain all missed games last season through injuries and Morton could deputise when it (most likely) happens again.

However, with the extensive midfield options, at best he’ll get the same amount of first-team action as last year which would be a waste.

With glowing references from Klopp and others, he would be best placed to get a full season of experience somewhere else.
