Young Liverpool striker MatheusMusialowski has signed his first professional contract at the club. The Liverpool Echo revealed that the 17-year-old has penned his first professional deal with the Reds as he hopes to break into the first team in the coming years.
On talents signed from other clubs, England junior international Harvey Elliott is in line to get his chance with the first team this season after a successful loan spell at Blackburn Rovers in the English Championship last season and the aforementioned Musialowski is not far behind after a stellar first season in the Liverpool youth team. Liverpool signed Elliott from Fulham two years ago and he is close to becoming a regular with the first team squad.
Musialowskiattracted the interest of clubs like Ajax Amsterdam in the Dutch Eredivisie, German club RB Leipzig and North London outfit Arsenal before the Reds snapped him up last year and he has already showed glimpses of his quality at Liverpool after his solo goal against Newcastle u-18s won the best goal award at Liverpool in March 2021 thereby breaking a record that has been in existence for eight years. Since 2013, only first team players had won the best goal award until Musialowski emerged as its recipient in March.
