Premier League squads these days are huge and that has lead to the loan system being overloaded with high class players, especially when it comes to the big six clubs in the top flight.
Chelsea are perhaps the most famous components of stock piling players and sending them out on loan but it isn't only the Stamford Bridge squad that is using the system. Liverpool are another massive team who have a host of talented young stars out on loan at the moment and the hope at Anfield will be that those players return to Merseyside better players for their experience.
A decision will be made on all of the players when they return to Melwood in the summer with the first team surely the ultimate goal for any player signing with a new club.
In truth, the majority of the players sent out on loan are unlikely to ever see first team action at a club like Liverpool but there are three players who have every chance of making a genuine impact for Jurgen Klopp next season...
The Welsh forward was sent out on loan to Derby this season after a stellar youth career at Liverpool and it is fair to say that the talented Welshman has flourished under Frank Lampard. Already a full international, Wilson has scored ten goals this season in the Championship alone which is an excellent return for an inexperienced player and plenty of them have been spectacular. A hammer of a left foot, the on-loan Ram made the headlines with a stunning free-kick goal against Man United at Old Trafford earlier this term which will have endeared himself even more to the Anfield faithful.
The 22-year-old Serbian midfielder was described as "by far the best midfielder at Hertha Berlin in 20 years" by Paul Dardai, who is his coach in the Bundesliga in a recent interview and that just about sums up how well Marko Grujic has done away from Anfield. There is no doubt that the Serbian has all the physical attributes to make it at Liverpool and with regular game time coming his way in Germany, it appears as if the Hertha star is growing by the day,
Liverpool aren't blessed with too much strength and depth in wide attacking areas at the moment and that could lead to young Ryan Kent taking his place in the first team squad next season. The tricky winger has excelled north of the border for Rangers under Steven Gerrard with his pace and direct style having a major impact on the Gers and their fans. Kent is clearly a talent and Liverpool have two options with him, bring him back into the fold for next season or sell an excellent player for a big fee to boost the transfer coffers.
