Liverpool forward signs new contract after AC Milan breakthrough
Max Woltman has been rewarded for a breakthrough campaign at Liverpool by signing a new contract.
The 19-year-old forward made the step up to the under-23s having been a regular for the U18s last season and featuring in their FA Youth Cup final defeat at Aston Villa.
Woltman was handed a senior Liverpool debut for the closing moments of the Champions League group stage win at AC Milan in December and was then on the bench for the Carabao Cup quarter-final triumph over Leicester City at Anfield.
And the young striker was handed a first start for Jurgen Klopp's side when he led the line in the FA Cup third round win over Shrewsbury Town in January.
Woltman was a regular in the U19 side that reached the UEFA Youth League quarter-finals this season where they were beaten by Juventus, and ended the campaign with nine goals in all competitions.
The teenager, who was born in Wirral, has been at the club's academy since the age of seven and signed his first professional contract at Liverpool in January 2021.
