Gordon has been heavily involved in Liverpool’s pre-season by Jurgen Klopp and has looked impressive.

With Harvey Elliott also in the ranks, the Reds have a good couple of youth options waiting in the wings.

Speaking to The Athletic, Trent said that Gordon has “frightening” potential…

Kaide has so much potential; it’s frightening, really,” the Liverpool man said.

Kaide will be looking up to Mo [Salah] and trying to pick bits from him because, on and off the pitch, Mo is an outstanding athlete and an outstanding person.”
