Liverpool’s young defender Anderson Arroyo is attracting interest from French side Strasbourg and German club Nurnberg, according to Goal.com.

The website report that Arroyo has been scouted by both Strasbourg and Nurnberg whilst playing for Colombia at the Under-20 World Cup in Poland, and that Liverpool are keen for the 19-year-old to get some more first team experience out on loan next season.

The defender, who joined Liverpool from Fortaleza in 2018 following a trial at the club, has been sent out on loan to Real Mallorca where he made 13 appearances for the club’s B team, before the Reds sent him on a season long loan to Belgian side Gent last year but he failed to make a single appearance for their senior side.

However, it is believed that after showing a strong performance in Colombia’s opening Under-20 World Cup match against Poland, which Arroyo’s side won 2-0, has attracted interest in the 19-year-old and Liverpool are thought to be anticipating loan enquiries for the defender in the next few weeks.

OPINION

It will be interesting to see where Arroyo is sent out on loan by Liverpool this summer, with next season a potentially crucial one for the 19-year-old. Arroyo will be needing to find a loan club that are willing to give the opportunity to get regular game time in senior football, and if he can manage to do that it will help him develop a lot quicker than he would be doing playing youth football for the Reds. The defender will be keen to continue his impressive performance in Colombia’s opening Under-20 World Cup game through the rest of the tournament, which if he can do will only attract more interest in him from potential loan clubs. Arroyo will then need to take that form into next season with his loan club and hope to catch the eye of Jurgen Klopp, ahead of potentially being placed in the German’s long-term plans for the next few years.
