Liverpool defender Adam Lewis is set to sign a contract extension, according to the print edition of The Sun on Sunday via HITC Sport.
Lewis is set to pen a new four-year deal to keep him at Anfield despite interest from Rangers and Newcastle United.
And the next step for the talented teenager will be a first-team breakthrough. Lewis cannot be far away now.
The 19-year-old operates predominantly as a left-back and has been a standout performer for Liverpool’s under-23 side this season.
Andrew Robertson is the undisputed first-choice left-back at Liverpool right now but he could do with some competition.
With Alberto Moreno’s future in doubt, Lewis will be hoping to step up as Liverpool’s second-choice in that department.
The England under-20 defender will hope to follow in the footsteps of Trent Alexander-Arnold, who has slotted seamlessly into Liverpool’s first-team.
Lewis will get opportunities next season, possibly in cup competitions and when Robertson needs to be rested.
This could be the making of his Liverpool career, proving why he can become a first-team star in the near future.
Lewis could be Liverpool’s next breakthrough starlet and this new contract is testament to his potential to become the next Alexander-Arnold for Jurgen Klopp.
