In 2019-20, meanwhile, Cain made his Reds debut, in the FA Cup fourth round replay win over Shrewsbury.
According to the Liverpool Echo, regular observers say his running power and is something to behold.
Indeed, there have even been early comparisons to Jordan Henderson, added the outlet.
At Under-23 level, Cain scored six goals and claimed five assists from 17 Premier League 2 appearances last term.
He also scored in one of his three EFL Trophy appearances in 2020-21.
