Update on Liverpool loaned stars plus their current transfer plans


Host of Liverpool stars are spending time out on loan this season

  • Harry Wilson at Bournemouth

Wilson admits he will make a decision on his Liverpool future this summer.

The 22-year-old has scored seven Premier League goals in 23 appearances on-loan at Bournemouth this season and his parent club are likely to demand in excess of £20m to secure his services permanently.

With several stars ahead in the pecking order and Euro 2020 on the horizon with Wales, Wilson could well choose to move on in search of regular first-team playing opportunities.

  • Loris Karius at Besiktas
Karius has appeared in all but one of Besiktas' league matches this term after missing the opening day of the season with a thigh strain.

He also featured in five of their six Europa League outings - conceding 10 goals in the process - but it appears the Turkish outfit will not seek to make the loan move permanent this summer.

"Karius will not be with us next season, his buy clause is expensive and there are a few issues I do not know the exact details," Besiktas manager Sergen Yalcin is reported to have said last month.

It is believed the Turkish club face challenging financial conditions and will have to act prudently this summer in order to comply with Financial Fair Play.

  • Marko Grujic at Hertha Berlin
Grujic was coy when asked about his Liverpool future in January but has made no secret of his happiness at Hertha Berlin and has previously hinted he could return to the club next season.

The Serbian midfielder, contracted until 2023, has made 20 Bundesliga appearances this term.

Grujic told the Liverpool  Echo in October that he wants to return in the summer to make a first-team impact at Anfield and is likely to have a clearer idea of where he stands when he returns in the summer.
  • Rhian Brewster at Swansea City
Brewster has made a positive impression at Swansea and scored four goals in 11 appearances since joining the Championship outfit on loan in January.

It seems almost certain he will return to Liverpool in the summer to fight for a first-team place under Klopp but any summer transfer business - RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner has been heavily linked - could change his situation.

Klopp, however, is a keen admirer of the teenager and he looks set to have a long-term future at Anfield.

  • Sheyi Ojo at Rangers
Ojo penned a long-term contract at Liverpool before heading to spend the campaign with Steven Gerrard at Rangers.

His opportunities have dwindled at Ibrox, however, and he has not been included in five of the last six SPL matchday squads, starting one in 18.

He seems set to return to Liverpool in the summer leaving a decision on his future.

  • Ben Woodburn at Oxford United
Woodburn is scheduled to return to Oxford this week after completing rehabilitation on a cruel double-injury setback at Liverpool.

The 20-year-old has two years remaining on his Anfield contract and is keen to fight for a future under Jurgen Klopp.

With a plethora of options available to the German, however, Woodburn is likely to look for another loan move next season in an attempt to catch the eye.

Oxford are third in League One and the Welshman is hoping to secure a spot in Ryan Giggs' Euro 2020 squad with a strong end to the campaign at the Kassam Stadium.

  • Nat Phillips at Stuttgart
Phillips made his Liverpool debut during the FA Cup third round victory over Everton in January before heading back to Germany to resume his loan spell with Stuttgart.

With his contract expiring in 2021, Liverpool will be left with a summer decision to extend his deal and allow him another temporary switch or to cash-in.

  • Herbie Kane at Hull City
Kane joined Hull in January and made six appearances before picking up an ankle ligament injury which could rule him out for the remainder of the season.

The midfielder penned fresh terms with Liverpool in December 2018 but after loan spells with Doncaster Rovers and the Tigers could look to make a permanent exit in the summer.

  • Anderson Arroyo at Mlada Boleslav
Arroyo is yet to make an appearance for Czech outfit Mlada Boleslav after joining in September.

He also failed to play for Gent after striking a deal to spend the 2018/19 season in Belgium.

Like Awoniyi, Arroyo is yet to obtain a British work-permit, leaving Liverpool with a decision to make on his future when he returns this summer.

  • Ovie Ejaria at Reading
Ejaria joined Reading on loan with an agreement for the move to become permanent at the end of the campaign.

He has made 35 appearances in all competitions for the Royals this season.

  • Kamil Grabara at Huddersfield Town
21-year-old goalkeeper Grabara suffered a serious head injury in the win over Hull City in January and has not featured for Huddersfield Town since.

Grabara remains contracted to Liverpool until 2022 but with Alisson undisputed number one and Adrian deputising, the Pole is likely to eye another season gaining first-team experience next term.

  • Taiwo Awoniyi at Mainz 05
Awoniyi has not featured for Mainz since December after falling down the pecking order and there was talk that Liverpool could cut-short his loan .

After spells with FSV Frankfurt, NEC, Royal Excel Mouscron and Gent, he is another who Liverpool are likely to make a decision on this summer as he continues to wait for a British work-permit. He is contracted until 2023.

  • Daniel Atherton at Marine
The goalkeeper - who made his Liverpool debut in a pre-season friendly as a striker - joined BetVictor North West Division outfit Marine on loan in January.

With more options ahead of him in the pecking order he could seek a permanent exit during the summer.

  • Rhys Williams at Kidderminster Harriers
Williams, 19, is spending the rest of the season at Kidderminster Harriers in the National League North.

He could eye another loan move at a higher standard next term after making 28 appearances for Kidderminster so far.

  • Isaac Christie-Davies at Cercle Brugge
Christie-Davies joined Cercle Brugge on loan in January but is yet to make an appearance after undergoing surgery. He is currently back at Liverpool undergoing rehabilitation.

The 22-year-old, who joined from Chelsea in 2018, could be allowed to leave in the summer with plenty of attacking options ahead of him in the pecking order.
