Liverpool have rewarded a striker who scored 41 goals at academy level in 2021/22 with an improved long-term contract.
Oakley Cannonier signed his first professional contract with the Reds last summer and has spent the last two seasons with the under-18s.
The last campaign was his most productive yet, with the forward finishing the season as the Academy’s top goalscorer.
Cannonier’s progress has now been recognised with an improved contract ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.
Many remember Cannonier for the part he played in Liverpool’s memorable Champions League victory over Barcelona in 2019 when, as ballboy, he handed the ball to Trent Alexander-Arnold before his iconic corner to set up Divock Origi for the winner.
Three years on, the striker will have designs on breaking into the first team himself, having yet to feature under Jurgen Klopp.
His movement and finishing ability are his standout attributes, reflected in the impressive goalscoring figures he has racked up at academy level.
Cannonier initially joined the club at under-12s level after leaving hometown club Leeds and will now be hoping the next stage of his Liverpool career is his most fruitful yet.
