Report: Thiago Alcantara has been amazed by 16-year-old Liverpool prospect, he thinks he's brilliant
Thiago Alcantara is among Kaide Gordon’s growing list of admirers at Liverpool, Goal.com say.
Gordon starred for Liverpool over pre-season, when he trained with the first-team in Austria and even played in a friendly against Osasuna.
Gordon scored on that occasion, and his ability and confidence is said to have already impressed many of his senior colleagues.
Goal list Thiago, Jordan Henderson and Joe Gomez as players who have all been ‘struck’ by his ability.
That is quite the collection of players to have on your side at the tender age of 16.
But there really are high hopes that Gordon could be the next player off the production line at Liverpool.
Star of the future
The young attacker has actually been at Anfield for less than a year, but he has already made a huge impact at development squad level.
He is a frequent scorer for the under-18 side, with his performances suggesting it is only a matter of time before he breaks through.
With Harvey Elliott, who is just two years Gordon’s senior, developing into a first-team star this season, there is also a clear pathway on offer for the starlet.
Liverpool’s attack is starting to age now, and will have to be refreshed in coming years.
And while it will be important that the Reds do go out and sign quality, they also have Gordon in the background, who could be ready to step into their starting line-up in the years ahead.
