Report: Liverpool goalkeeper to leave on loan; scout believes he can go ‘even further’ than club icon
Liverpool goalkeeper Jakub Ojrzynski is close to leaving the club on loan for the season after two years in the youth set-up.
According to the Liverpool Echo, the Polish youngster will sign for top-flight Welsh side Caernarfon Town. Ojrzynski is yet to make a first-team appearance for the Reds, but the teenager did make the bench on a few occasions last campaign.
Liverpool signed Ojrzynski from Legia Warsaw in the summer of 2019. And the keeper has already formed a solid reputation for himself with the Merseyside giants. The 18-year-old impressed for both the U18 and U23 sides last campaign.
And now, Ojrzynski is will continue his development in the Cymru Premier for the 2021/22 season. As of writing, the keeper has not official moved to the Welsh side.
However, Caernarfon announced his arrival on social media in a Twitter post which has since been deleted.
Ojrzynski might not be well-known beyond Liverpool supporters. But the keeper is highly rated in his homeland of Poland.
In an interview with Lewis Bower, chief scout of the Polish FA Maciej Chorazyk believes that Ojrzynski can go further in football and Liverpool than club icon Jerzy Dudek.
Chorazyk said: “Jerzy Dudek wrote a beautiful story in Liverpool. Kamil Grabara joined Liverpool as a 16-year-old and is now a very good goalkeeper. I believe that Jakub Ojrzynski will go even further.”
With Ojrzynski getting his first taste of first-team football next season, both Liverpool and Poland fans will be hoping the 18-year-old takes to the senior game like a duck to water and progresses well in his year with Caernarfon.
