They managed to impress the management so much that Jurgen Klopp blocked any potential loan moves for them.
JURGEN KLOPP NEEDS NEW SIGNINGS IN THE JANUARY TRANSFER WINDOW
Despite the youngsters impressing, Jurgen Klopp needs to sign new players in the January transfer window. The Reds are currently in an injury crisis. Only Darwin Nunez has managed to be back from suspension. Other players will need a few weeks to recover. This player will then travel to Qatar for the World Cup. Hence, many players are going to be nursing minor knocks or major injuries.
