A formality, but Liverpool’s squad for the Premier League this season has been officially confirmed, with 23 players named, including one surprise player.
Striker Paul Glatzel, who featured in pre-season back in 2019 before injuries struck, has been named among the squad as he is now aged 22 and meets the ‘homegrown’ criteria.
Glatzel went out on loan to Tranmere for a second time last season, but his time there was cut short due to injury, making just one 14-minute appearance last September for the League Two side.
Despite his naming in the Premier League squad, Liverpool fans shouldn’t be expecting him to feature for the Reds this forthcoming season.
Liverpool would have been able to name 25 players if they had two more homegrown-qualifying players.
New signing Ryan Gravenberch is not listed as he is classed as under-21 player due to being born after January 1, 2002.
