Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp knows he will have to make some significant changes to his squad to avoid the disasters of last season.

However, rather than throwing money at the problem in the summer transfer window, the German manager is likely to turn to Liverpool’s famed academy for solutions to his problems.

According to the Athletic, the Anfield boss has included a huge swath of youth players in his pre-season training camp to see whether any of them can fill in the holes in his first team.

And one player in particular, a young winger by the name of Mateusz Musialowski, may be the most impressive of them all.

What position does Mateusz Musialowski play?

After coming through in the youth teams at SMS Lodz, Musialowski was spotted by Liverpool’s scouts and signed in August of last year for his talents on the wing.

Although the young Polish talent can play as a no.10 or in the middle of the pitch, his abilities are better suited to running at defenders with space to exploit in behind. In a sense, he’s a very traditional winger.

How old is Mateusz Musialowski?

Mateusz Musialowski was born on October 16, 2003 which makes him 17 years old.

How good is Mateusz Musialowski?

Like all players that are scouted and then signed by Liverpool, Musialowski has bags of talent and even more promise of what could come.

Since making the move to England, the 17-year-old winger has wasted no time at all showing just how good he can be by scoring 12 goals and bagging a further three assists in 25 games across all competitions.

Musialowski was integral to Liverpool’s side reaching the FA Youth Cup final, when he scored against Arsenal in the quarter-final and then again in the semi-final against Ipswich Town.

He also won last season’s U18 Premier League goal of the season award, after a remarkable run and smart finish against Newcastle United. Indeed, Musialowski’s ability to accelerate and dance through constant streams of players has actually earned him the nickname of “The Polish Messi” which undoubtedly suggests that Liverpool’s playing and coaching staff have very high hopes indeed for him.
