Liverpool have received a lot of credit in recent weeks for their academy due to the fact that Conor Bradley and Bobby Clark came on against Arsenal in the FA Cup third round when it was level.

The pair of youngsters impressed as Liverpool went on to win the game with two late goals and Bradley in particular received praise for his defending against Gabriel Martinelli.

Bradley then got a start against Fulham in the first leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final and his performance earned him a Man of the Match performance as he filled in for the injured Trent Alexander-Arnold.

The former Bolton Wanderers loanee proceeded to start his first Premier League game against Bournemouth and he got an assist for Diogo Jota.

As well as him several other young players were brought on by Jurgen Klopp as Clark, Kaide G0rdon and Owen Beck as The Reds extended their lead at the top of the Premier League.

The senior side got the job in style whilst the Under 18’s Liverpool side thrashed rivals Arsenal 7-1 with several more young players impressing.

Tent Kone-Doherty, Jayden Danns and Lewis Koumas all got on the scoresheet which has given some sides in the second tier a reason to be interested in them.

Championship sides are looking at Lewis Koumas

According to a recent report several teams in the second tier of English football are looking at taking a risk and signing Lewis Koumas on loan for his first move away from Liverpool.

However he is expected to stay throughout this transfer window and continue his development at the academy with a loan deal possibly being on the cards at the start of next season.

Liverpool view him as a future star at the club as it is expected that he will be signing a new contract for many years in the near future just like James McConnell did recently.

Koumas might even be looking at Liverpool’s FA Cup fourth round game against Norwich City as a chance to get his first senior minutes for the club after he appeared in the senior squad for the first time in December when Liverpool played their last Europa League group stage game against Union Saint-Gilloise.

He made his unofficial debut back last summer when he featured for the first-team in a friendly against German side Karlsuher SC as he gained some important experience being around the leaders of the club.
