In a statement on the club’s official website, Liverpool announced that they had reached an agreement with Paul Glatzel over a new long-term contract.
Upon signing his new contract, the 18-year-old said: “It’s a great feeling obviously.
“I was disappointed to get my injury at the start of the season, but it’s a great feeling and it shows that the club has got faith in me. Now I can just focus on my rehab and get back on the pitch.”
Liverpool have been working overtime to ensure that contracts are handed to and signed by those at the club that are absolutely vital to the immediate and future success of the Merseyside outfit.
Rhian Brewster might be the Academy forward that fans have been speaking about the most but Glatzel scored 28 goals for the Liverpool U18s last season and is just as exciting as his 19-year-old teammate.
He was showing signs of his quality in pre-season against Tranmere Rovers before he picked up a serious injury that has kept him sidelined since which is wholly unfortunate as pre-season offers young players the chance to prove their worth with Jurgen Klopp on the sidelines.
Glatzel is just 18 years old so there will be plenty more opportunities for the young forward to prove he’s the real deal.
