EFL outfit ‘looking at’ loan move for Liverpool gem Klopp dubbed a ‘real talent’ – journalist

Posted by

Liverpool youngster Harvey Blair is reportedly wanted on loan by Reading for the 2023/24 season.

Former Berkshire Live journalist Jonathan Low tweeted that the Royals ‘are looking at’ a potential temporary swoop for the winger, with the League One side also interested in Abu Kamara of Norwich.

The Reds prodigy had also been linked with Aberdeen and Portsmouth in recent weeks (Football Insider), although nothing has come of either of those.

Blair netted five goals in 18 appearances for Liverpool’s under-21s last season, his first campaign at that level, and also featured once for the first team in a Carabao Cup win over Preston en route to eventual glory at Wembley in 2021/22 (Transfermarkt).

He earned the praise of Jurgen Klopp after that victory at Deepdale, with the manager dubbing the teenager ‘a real talent‘ after giving him a senior bow on the night.

The 19-year-old mainly plays out wide but is capable of lining up anywhere across the forward line, and having only had one solitary appearance at first-team level (Transfermarkt), a loan switch to the Football League would appear to be the next natural step in his development.

Having endured financial difficulties in recent times (BBC) and been relegated from the Championship last term, Reading currently have the smallest squad in League One, boasting just 14 senior players (Transfermarkt).

It mightn’t seem the most serene situation for Blair to be trying to cut his teeth at senior level, although he may also look at the sparsity of competition as a chance to enjoy regular game-time at the Select Car Leasing Stadium.

Whether or not he ends up with the Royals, hopefully the Liverpool youngster will get a loan move which sees him prosper from plenty of first-team exposure.

  1. I think Henderson doesn’t deserve to be a LFC player. His performances have detoriated to say the least. Fabinho ‘s standard has dwindled too. His pace is that of a snail and his kicking of opponents will cost the club points.It is therefore imperative for him to be sold the sooner the better. He is like Casameiro in Man.U in terms of poor tackling though I enjoy that of their former.
