Tranmere Rovers are working on a deal to sign Liverpool defender Adam Lewis on loan, according to Football Insider.
The 19-year-old left-back is yet to make a competitive appearance for Liverpool, but did feature for them in a recent pre-season friendly and is a regular for their under-23 side.
According to Football Insider, Tranmere have made contact with Liverpool over a possible loan deal and Jurgen Klopp is considering allowing the player to leave on loan to allow him to gain more experience.
Lewis made 29 appearances for Liverpool’s under-23 side last season, scoring one goal.
Tranmere boss Micky Mellon is looking to strengthen his squad following back-to-back promotions from the National League to League One.
Rovers lost their opening two league matches, but are now 13th in the third tier after a 5-0 win over Bolton Wanderers at the weekend.
This could be a good signing for Tranmere. Lewis is a promising young player – he wouldn’t be at a top club like Liverpool unless he had the potential to be something special and the fact that he played in a recent pre-season game shows that he’s highly rated for the future at Anfield.
However, there’s no way he’s going to get a chance in the first team at Liverpool this season ahead of Andy Robertson, so sending him out on loan is probably the best option for his development, as it will allow him to experience regular first-team football.
He could be a good signing for Tranmere and would provide some welcome competition for Liam Ridehalgh at left-back.
