Several younger players might be kicking their heels with fewer games for the Reds this season.
Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp
Jurgen Klopp seems determined to find the right loan moves for his younger players. So far Danny Ward has been sent on loan to Huddersfield Town to work under Klopp's friend David Wagner, while Jon Flanagan is considering a loan move to Burnley, according to the Liverpool Echo.
Adam Bogdan's days at the club look numbered as he was sent on loan to Wigan Athletic, but there are still a number of younger players that were either called back from their loan spell last season, or were given opportunities last term that may not get the same chances this season because of the Reds lack of European football.
So who could benefit from regular football away from Liverpool?
Here are three players who might:
Liverpool's Cameron Brannagan in action with Bournemouth's Matt Ritchie
He was given opportunities in cup competitions and when Klopp decided to rotate the side towards the back end of the season as the Reds embarked on their run to the Europa League final. There is a lot of competition for places in the Reds midfield with Emre Can, Jordan Henderson, Lucas Leiva and James Milner all capable of playing in the middle - and Georginio Wijnaldum is expected to complete his move from Newcastle in the near future and compete for a place in the side. The Reds are pretty well stocked in that area even if they do sell Joe Allen.
Brannagan has attracted the attentions of Wigan Athletic in the Championship, but the Liverpool Echo have reported that is on the brink of collapse as they won't meet a 'playing clause' for the midfielder. But at the age of 20, he does need games for his development. There are too many players ahead of him in the pecking order right now for him to stick around at Anfield and for it to be beneficial to him.
Ryan Kent scores the second goal for Liverpool
Kent was recalled from a loan spell with Coventry City last season and likes to play in a wide role, and he seems to have linked up well with fellow youngster Ben Woodburn during pre-season. The duo seem to have a good relationship on the field. But Kent only played the one first team game following his return to Anfield and given that a lot of Liverpool's wider roles seem to filled ahead of the new season, it may be good for Kent to get some more game time elsewhere before returning next term.
Liverpool's Pedro Chirivella in action with Swansea's Jack Cork
Chirivella is in the same boat as Brannagan to an extent, but what was striking about his latest first team appearance - he played the first half of the 3-1 defeat to Swansea City at the end of last season - was how he needs to get used to the first team environment. He had a couple of outings for the first team outing prior to that but it was noticeable how he struggled with the intensity that day in pretty tricky conditions. The 19-year-old has time on his side to address that and such a move this term could aid him in that particular part of his game.
