Give it three years and this Liverpool XI could be making an impact.

Liverpool have conquered Europe once again and while their transfer activity has been quiet so far, the Reds are clearly busy plotting for the future.

The club have signed 17-year-old Sepp van den Berg from PEC Zwolle, and he is being followed by 16-year-old Harvey White from Fulham, report BBC Sport.

They are not the only exciting Liverpool talents, with the Reds winning the 2019 FA Youth Cup.


So we have had a go at projecting a possible Liverpool side for three years time based on the Reds' current exciting options.

You might need to suspend belief a little. It isn't likely the Reds would purge their current XI, with only Trent Alexander-Arnold remaining.

And not all of these Liverpool youngsters will make it.

But it shows the dramatic strength in depth the Reds have.

Kamil Grabara is an outstanding prospect in goal, but realistically, he needs a miracle to displace Alisson.

Central defence is Liverpool's strength, and while Joe Gomez will probably figure, for the purpose of this exercise we have included Ki-Jana Hoever alongside FA Youth Cup winner Rhys Williams and Sepp van den Berg.

New signing Harvey Elliott could pull the strings in midfield, with Harry Wilson and Curtis Jones cutting in from the wing.

Liverpool aren't short on strikers either, with Rhian Brewster primed to break through. Bobby Duncan hopes to follow him, although there's a case to include Paul Glatzel too.
