Liverpool’s loan strategy with academy stars has sees them a step ahead of rivals Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal in the transfer market.
The Reds sit 25 points clear at the top of the Premier League, only two wins away from the title.
It has seen them linked with high-profile names such as Timo Werner and Kylian Mbappe.
They may face competition, though, from their league rivals for the European stars’ signatures.
But the Liverpool Echo suggest they are leading the way in transfer market strategies, specifically with Ovie Ejaria.
The Englishman has been at the club since 2014 in their youth academy.
Since breaking into the senior team four years ago, he has only made eight appearances in Red, being sen on three separate loan spells.
Spending time at Sunderland, Rangers and most recently Reading, he has racked up 50 appearances in the midfield.
But the report states 22-year-old is unlikely to make a return to Anfield, instead option for a permanent move to the Championship side.
This is not the first time Klopp has used this strategy, with loan moves ended in transfers for Danny Ings, Mamdou Sakho (Crystal Palace) and Ryan Kent (Rangers).
It has seen Liverpool maximise the opportunity to show off their academy stars that are unlikely to be part of future plans on the footballing stage.
This theory is also supported by the big roles Trent Alexander-Arnold and Curtis Jones have played this season.
Both from the city, they have been mainstays in the Reds’ league and cup campaigns while colleagues such as Rhian Brewster and Harry Wilson have been loaned out.
The latest star linked with a move to Anfield is Rennes wondered Eduardo Camavinga, who is also a target for rivals United.
The 17-year-old has made 36 appearances in midfield this season, even grabbing a goal as his side sit third in Ligue 1.
