4) Jerome Sinclair
Jerome Sinclair might not have matched Ojo’s success during his loan spell at Wigan – making just the one appearance – but he’s clearly benefited from the experience, having returned to find a place in the first-team waiting for him. The 18-year-old is clearly making a name for himself, and thus chances will hopefully continue to come his way.
Apart from a goalkeeper, he plays in arguably the toughest position on the pitch, as there is one very important statistic that could decide his future. By playing up front, he will need to be a talisman for the side whatever his age. If he can fulfil his potential, then he could be a special talent. He’s notched plenty for the academy side but can he transfer those skills to the big stage?
3) Andre Wisdom
Playing right-back may not be as glamorous as playing as a striker, but it is still a position where we need to add some depth for next season. Glen Johnson may not be a Liverpool player for much longer (via ESPN), and Jon Flanagan looks set to miss much of the campaign through injury (via The Independent). That could allow for Andre Wisdom to get a good run in the side, which would allow him to stake a claim for a longer-term role.
The 22-year-old has played a handful of games for us in the past, but has used his loan spells to progress his game. Last season he was in the Championship with Derby, and he stepped up to the Premier League this year with West Brom. At both clubs he has looked impressive and confident. If Brendan Rodgers shows faith in him by selecting him as our first choice right-back, then we may see the best of Wisdom.
