Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp with Sheyi Ojo
Burnley are preparing for life back in the Premier League, and slowly but surely are adding quality to their squad in the hope of avoiding relegation this season. The club, however, does need to bring in some more players before the end of the transfer window, and could look to 19 year old Liverpool midfielder Sheyi Ojo to add to their attacking options out wide.
In a recent Sky Sports interview, Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp admitted that he is weighing up whether or not to loan out Ojo, saying that "we will have to see." Klopp added: "Sheyi is a wonderful player that's for sure, and his future is 100 per cent at Liverpool." But, for the coming season, Klopp might look to offload the player to another club to continue Ojo's development - especially given Liverpool's other wealth of attacking talent.

Ojo has already spent some successful periods away from Anfield, previously impressing on loan deals at Wigan and Wolves. Burnley do have quality in the wide positions, with right winger Johan Berg Gudmondsen arriving this summer from Charlton, but Ojo's game seems to offer something slightly different for Burnley, as Ojo has more strength and power than players like George Boyd or Michael Kightly that usually occupy the Burnley left winger spot. Ojo is skilful with the ball at his feet, and can create plenty of chances.
Burnley have already undertaken a deal with Liverpool for one of their young loan stars this summer, taking full back Jon Flanagan for the year. Might they return for Sheyi Ojo, a player that seems to have something special about him a such a young age ? Ojo needs game time, and Klopp would surely want to help the player develop as quickly as possible. It's going to be a tough test for Burnley to avoid the drop again this season, but signing a loan deal for Ojo will doubtless help their cause.
