The midfielder initially showed good promise as an Academy hopeful, but his career has moved somewhat sideways over the last few seasons.
With Liverpool improving in every department over the same timeframe, it’s inevitable that one or two players will have to move on to continue their journey, and that is now the case with Ejaria.
The Echo report that Liverpool are willing to sell him for around £3.5 million, with Brentford keen on a deal at that figure, plus a sell-on clause which seems to come as standard now to sign a Reds player.
Reading are also interested, though the weekend talk was that they were hoping for a loan deal after Ejaria was there on a temporary spell last season.
Another loan is not on the cards, however, given the circumstances Liverpool face this season.
The U23s will play in the EFL Trophy, which could see Ejaria bring his reasonable experience of lower-level action to the side.
It’s unlikely he has a future in the first team, though, with his last appearance coming in January 2017. Since then he has had loan spells at Sunderland, Rangers and Reading—and only last year he signed a new contract with the Reds before heading north of the border.
