Liverpool football club have some of the best young players in the game right now. Some have made their way into the first team, while others are still on the fringe or awaiting their chances.
One of the biggest improvements made to the club during the time of Rafael Benitez was the development of the Reds' academy system, and the club are beginning to feel some of that influence in their first team.
Over the next few seasons, the players listed as follows—that you all should have heard of as budding stars in the Liverpool youth ranks—are likely to make a major impact.
Adam Morgan looks as though he can grow into a managerial and crowd favorite. The youngster scored during the Reds' opening friendly this summer against FC Toronto and has made his way to the outskirts of the first team.
Morgan could be the future answer to the Reds' striking issues, but he is yet to be a solid first team selection and still spends the majority of his time in the reserves and U21s.
Andre Wisdom has stormed to the spotlight his season. He already has 10 first-team appearances and has been a major hit with the fans having also already notched his first goal for the club.
With the injury to Martin Kelly still seeing the senior player out, Wisdom still has much opportunity to make a push for more first-team action.
Conor Coady is a highly praised young midfielder and defender. With the ability to operate as either a holding man in front of the back line or as a center-back himself, he could be a very versatile player for Brendan Rodgers in the future.
Coady also has seemed a well-rated young talent by previous managers Rafael Benitez, Roy Hodgson and Kenny Dalglish, and he is expected to do great things at the club.
A recent summer addition to the club, young German striker Samed Yesil is one of his nation's most decorated and highly praised young attackers.
Liverpool are in need of strong future line-leading candidates, and the young former Bayer Leverkusen player was originally handed his debut in Germany by former Liverpool great Sami Hyypia.
Yesil has made two appearances for the Liverpool first team this season but is yet to score his first goal for the club.
MIchael Ngoo looks a great future star for the Reds. He moved to the club in 2009 from Southend United and has never looked back, becoming one of the main goalscorers for the U18s and now U21s and reserves.
Braga-born Portuguese youngster Joao Carlos Teixeira joined the Liverpool Academy this early spring from Sporting Lisbon.
He has been one of the brightest players to come out of the NextGen series that has seen the young squads of major clubs from around Europe competing in recent seasons to ensure their youth players have the opportunity to grow against top quality opposition.
Although both Raheem Sterling and Suso have become near regulars in the first team, both are still considered youth players because of their age.
However, they are by far the two most promising at the moment, aside from older Jonjo Shelvey who also is a massive future talent for the Reds.
