Poll: Which Liverpool loanee has best chance of success upon return to Anfield?

Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp

Liverpool have 14 players currently out on loan, but which has the best chance of success upon their return to Anfield?

With Liverpool's current form leaving some concerned about the depth within their squad, fans would be forgiven for looking at the 14 players currently away from Anfield on loan and wondering if any of them could have made an impact for Jurgen Klopp's men this season. 

Poll: The worst refereeing decision of the weekend

But which player has the best chance of long-term success with the Reds? Before you get the chance to vote, here is a look at the contenders...


The 19-year-old Brazilian has made little impact during his time in the Bundesliga with Hertha Berlin, but has plenty of time to develop and put pressure on the current central midfielders.

Taiwo Awoniyi

Another teenager playing in a top division in Europe is Taiwo Awoniyi. Like Allan, he has struggled, but his time with NEC should stand him in good stead given he's enjoyed plenty of first-team football.

Adam Bogdan

Liverpool's Adam BogdanAdam Bogdan

Adam Bogdan's time with the Reds has not exactly gone to plan but he has played regularly for Wigan. A path back to the first-team would arguably be more down to the struggles of Liverpool's current stoppers rather than his own form.

Cameron Brannagan

The 20-year-old is perhaps running out of time to make an impact in the Reds' first-team, so a loan at Fleetwood may be an ideal way to show what he can do. 

Pedro Chirivella

Chirivella only joined Go Ahead Eagles in January, but has already made an impression. His first four Eredivisie appearances have seen him score one and contribute an assist. 

Jack Dunn

At 22, Jack Dunn's time with Liverpool may be running out as he recently moved to National League side Tranmere Rovers. It would surely take a special spell at Prenton Park to even put him on the periphery of Klopp's radar.

Jon Flanagan

Jon Flanagan appeared to be destined to become a stalwart of the Liverpool defence for years to come but injuries have cruelly scuppered his development. He's made a handful of appearances in the Premier League with Burnley, so perhaps he could still be an answer to the Reds' problems at full-back.

Ryan Fulton

Ryan Fulton has enjoyed plenty of first-team football between the sticks at Chesterfield, but their struggles in League One have probably prevented him making that great an impact. 

Lloyd Jones

Another player currently on loan with a team languishing in League One is Lloyd Jones. The Swindon man has enjoyed a decent spell, making 22 league appearances, scoring twice.

Ryan Kent

Ryan Kent offered plenty of excitement in the youth teams before he got the chance to head out on loan. Now at Barnsley, the winger has been lively and helped the Tykes move into play-off contention in the Championship. A brilliant goal in the recent win over Leeds would have surely not gone unnoticed at his parent club.

Lazar Markovic

It is still difficult to know whether Lazar Markovic is still in the long-term plans at Anfield. The fact that the hierarchy have not sold him permanently certainly suggests that he could have a future with the Reds. Helping Hull stay up would surely boost his chances of proving himself at Liverpool enormously. 

Mamadou Sakho

Mamadou Sakho was once seemingly on his way to cult-hero status at Anfield, but he seems to have ruined any chance of being thought of in that way. Klopp clearly does not want to use him, and it would not be a surprise if the loan move to Crystal Palace only came about because there were no suitable permanent offers on the table.

Danny Ward

The Huddersfield stopper has been excellent for the majority of the season, so it would perhaps not be that great a surprise if Klopp was considering whether Ward could be a genuine rival for Loris Karius and Simon Mignolet if they do not sign another keeper this summer.

Harry Redknapp and Paul Ince predict who'll finish higher: Everton or Liverpool

Andre Wisdom

Andre Wisdom was arguably another player who seemed destined to feature regularly in the Liverpool team for years to come, but he is yet to realise his potential. A disappointing loan spell at Red Bull Salzburg has probably done little to boost the 23-year-old's hopes of adding to his 22 appearances for the Reds.

So there are the contenders, but who do you think has the best chance of being a success at Liverpool?
