Liverpool have a wealth of talent at Anfield and even more currently playing their football away from the club.
Whether or not any of those currently on loan deals elsewhere breakthrough in the future remains to be seen.
If Jurgen Klopp is looking to bulk out his squad or save a penny or two over the summer, there are some players he could look to call upon next season.
Here are some Liverpool loanees who could prove to be useful squad members ahead of the new campaign.
Marko Grujic is developing nicely in the Bundesliga this season and that surely will not be going unnoticed at Anfield.
Midfield is an area that Jurgen Klopp has rotated heavily this season and added numbers could be useful. Grujic is said to be attracting interest in Spain so Liverpool could be forced to make a decision on whether or not to cash in.
Harry Wilson is a player that a lot of Liverpool fans will want to see breakthrough. He’s excelled in the Championship with Derby this season, but question marks remain over whether or not he’ll be able to step up in the Premier League.
You also have to ask where exactly he fits in. Because of how reliant Liverpool are on their front free, minutes aren’t going to be coming on a regular basis. Despite that, he could be a very useful squad player to have around, if Liverpool are prepared to show him a route to the first team.
It looks like Liverpool have a real prospect in the form of Taiwo Awoniyi, but the lack of or inability to secure a work permit could halt his Anfield career before it has really started.
Awoniyi has been impressing on loan in Belgium and is certainly a name for fans to keep an eye on. Next season may be too early for him, with his future out of Liverpool’s hands to some extent.
Don’t laugh, stay with me.
It’s not inconceivable to think that Simon Mignolet leaves Anfield this summer, meaning that the Reds will need a new senior number two.
Karius’ time in Turkey has hardly gone to plan and he would need to prove his worth to Jurgen Klopp in pre-season to stand any chance of a Liverpool return, but it could be a wise move to bring him back into the fold.
His confidence was shattered at the end of last season and his time away on loan hasn’t really helped matters. Klopp isn’t one to rotate in Europe, so his game time would come largely in the domestic cup competitions.
You never know.
