There are several best academy talents that have been called up by the manager of Liverpool Jurgen Klopp at Melwood for preseason training.
The first team of Klopp has been left them at the beginning of the procession. Emre Can, Danny Ward and Joe Allen are on duty currently at the Euro 2016. The German football manager welcomed the remaining members of his squad on 2nd of July as the training started in Melwood. Klopp has decided to make some changes due the Reds first clash with Tranmere Rovers approaching on Friday.
There are some young talents like Ben Woodburn, Ovie Ejaria and Trent Alexander Arnold, who would be moving up from the Kirkby academy of the club. Well, this is yet not fully confirmed if they would be seen playing against Tranmere. Some of the other familiar names like Cameron Brannagan, Pedro Chirivella, Brad Smith and Kevin Stewart are also a part of the Klopp’s squad. The Brazilian midfielder known as Allan Rodrigues is said to be returning soon after he gets his work permit. Once he gets work permit, he would be free to participate in the friendlies. He is ready to leave the club for another deal in the next few weeks.
The inclusion of Alexander Arnold will make the Under 18’s captain shifted to cover in midfield or at right back and Ejaria will be operating in the latter role. Also, Woodburn would be the backup for Mario Balotelli and Danny Ings upfront with Christian Benteke and Daniel Sturridge having not yet gone back to Merseyside. Well, Liverpool is all set to kick off their run of 9 warm-up friendlies on 8th of July at Prenton Park. There will be domestic clashes seen with Wigan Athletic, Fleetwood Town and Huddersfield Town to reach before the tour of the Reds of the US.
