Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp and defender Trent Alexander-Arnold have both given exciting verdicts of new Bolton Wanderers signing Owen Beck.
The 20-year-old became Bolton's fifth acquisition of the transfer window yesterday as he joined from the Premier League side on loan for the campaign. He had been on loan at Portuguese side Famalicao, but that was cut short so he could join Bolton.
He follows Eoin Toal and Jack Iredale joining on permanent deals from Derry City and Cambridge United this summer. Defender and Beck's team-mate Conor Bradley has joined from Liverpool, while goalkeeper James Trafford has been signed up again from Manchester City.
The left-back has played twice for Premier League side Liverpool's first team, both of which came last season. He will now spend the campaign at Wanderers and seek to pick up more experience of men's football.
Kop boss Klopp has given an exciting verdict of the defender and someone he is excited about seeing in action. He has described Beck as a 'super talent'.
Speaking last summer to LFCTV, Klopp said: "Owen is a super talent, I'm really excited about him."
His comments were backed up by defender Alexander-Arnold, who gave a dressing room verdict of what the Liverpool squad make of the youngster. He believes Beck has a bright future and can learn from the likes of Andy Robertson and Kostas Tsimikas.
He said: “He’s impressed a lot of us with the way he is. He’s still growing, he’s still maturing as a lad, he’s got a lot to learn but the signs are there that he’s going to be a top player.
“He’s obviously got Robbo and Kostas ahead of him - hopefully being in and around them he’ll be able to pick up things and learn from them. He got the opportunity and took it.”
