Report: Three Liverpool teenagers primed to get chances under Klopp

Three Liverpool youngsters are at the forefront of Jurgen Klopp's plans.

Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool spell is underway and just days from the new era's first Premier League match.

The German has plenty of expensively assembled talent to work with, like big money signings Roberto Firmino and Mamadou Sakho, but as he showed at Borussia Dortmund, part of his legacy will be guiding through young players into the first team.

Klopp was spotted watching Liverpool's under-18s at Melwood on Saturday, and can benefit from plenty of quality youngsters assembled during Brendan Rodgers' spell in charge.

The Mirror report that there are three players who are at the forefront of Klopp's initial plans.

It is claimed that Jordan Rossiter, 18, Jordon Ibe, 19, and Cameron Brannagan, 19, will all get chances under the new boss, permitted to continue their upward progression.

Central midfielder Rossiter has begun to feature semi-regularly this season, handed consecutive starts in the Europa League, and has also made a substitute appearance in the Premier League.

Ibe has played in five Premier League games, carrying on his good progress in the second half of last season, and played for England's under-21s in the week.

Brannagan was an unused substitute in the League Cup game against Carlisle, showing he too is on the fringes of the first team, although remaining a step behind Rossiter.

It would be a surprise if any featured against Spurs at the weekend, Ibe is best placed but he has a knock to shake off from international duty, but with Europa League and Capital One Cup games upcoming, each player is likely to get their chance to show what they can do.
