The 2023/24 season was an unexpected youth movement at Liverpool as numerous teenagers burst onto the scene at various times, with the culmination being "Klopp's Kids" getting the job done against Chelsea at Wembley in the League Cup Final.

A majority of those players such as Jayden Danns, Conor Bradley, Bobby Clark, Jarell Quansah and Lewis Koumas all were full-time Academy players until injuries with the first team gave them fresh chances.

As we look ahead, the Liverpool Academy is still very strong even if you look beyond the above names, which is just what I'm going to do here.

I have found four youngsters in the Academy that you need to keep an eye on in the coming season as Arne Slot could very well give one or two of them a shot at some point during the season.

Keyrol Figueroa - 17 years old - F

The first player to follow is one of the biggest names at the LFC Academy as Figueroa arrived at U14 level in 2021-22.

He signed his first professional contract just last month as he solidified his commitment to the club. He's got some decent size about him and I expect him to grow even more, but for now he stands around 5'10.

Figueroa has blistering pace that allows him to run through almost any channel that he wants on the pitch which means he is a threat to break the line from almost anywhere.

He does offer some attacking versatility as he can also play on the right where his pace is accentuated and he can cut inside-out to rip through defenses. He's a proven commodity at the USA U17 level already as well so he is already shining against top sides.

He is capable of scoring some classy goals and with his father having played for Wigan Athletic, he will not be afraid of the pressure that comes with being a professional footballer.
