Liverpool defender Owen Beck could head out on loan ahead of the new season with a host of clubs having enquired about the services of the left-back.
The ECHO understands interest in the 19-year-old, who made his first-team breakthrough in the 2021/22 campaign, has already been shown from clubs in the Premier League, Championship and Europe.
Beck, an impressive performer for Barry Lewtas' under-23s side and who signed a long-term deal with Liverpool last summer, is the great-nephew of former Kop sensation Ian Rush.
The teenager was one of a handful of youngsters included in first-team manager Jurgen Klopp's 34-man squad for the Reds' pre-season training camp in Austria.
And Beck, who started six games in the UEFA Youth League as Liverpool reached the quarter-finals this season, was then handed his first-team debut at Preston North End in the League Cup in October with Klopp subsequently describing the new boy as a "real prospect".
Beck then made an impressive late cameo in the following round at home to Leicester City as the Reds won through on penalties to reach the semi-finals. He was also on the bench three times in the Premier League and once in the FA Cup.
Klopp is well-stacked when it comes to left-back options with Andy Robertson challenged by Kostas Tsimikas for a regular role. And in a bid to aid Beck's development over the short term, he could be one of a number of Academy hopefuls allowed out on loan next term, although Liverpool are likely to wait until after pre-season has started before deciding which players could depart temporarily.
Beck, who is currently with Wales U21s and started their 1-0 home defeat to Holland on Saturday, could potentially be included in the Reds' pre-season squad to Asia next month for a friendlies against Manchester United and Crystal Palace.
