Liverpool considering bid after ex-Villarreal man stuns in pre-season camp

Liverpool are reportedly considering making a contract offer to teenage goalkeeper Javier Cendon after he stunned Anfield coaches in the club’s pre-season training camp.

The Reds are in Austria preparing for the defence of their maiden Premier League title.

As part of the pre-season camp, Klopp has had the chance to assess the younger talents in his squad. He brought 20-year-old striker Rhian Brewster along and openly spoke of his admiration for young centre-back Billy Koumetio.

According to Goal, however, another player who has made waves in Austria is former Villarreal goalkeeper Cendon.

The 19-year-old left Villarreal at the end of last season and has joined in first-team training on the trip. The source says the teenager has “impressed” members of staff.

One key coach who has taken a particular liking to Cendon, however, is goalkeeping coach John Achterberg.

As such, Goal adds Liverpool are considering offering the goalkeeper a contract. Should the Reds go through with their proposal, it is likely he will join up with the Under-23s squad.

Brewster scored the third goal in the weekend’s match, with Roberto Firmino and Naby Keita also on the scoresheet.
