Liverpool winger Kaide Gordon has impressed his fellow teammates with his performances in pre-season, according to reports in England.
The 16-year-old, who joined from Derby County in February, has been with the first team during their training camp in Austria, and he has stood out as one of the brightest young talents coming up through the ranks.
Supporters on Twitter have also been very happy with Gordon’s impact during pre-season, with some believing that teams on the continent would be considering starting him in their first team due to the talent he possesses:

This kid will have a bigger impact then Elliot

It’s best not to put too much pressure on the teenager. He certainly possesses a great deal of potential but, with Mo Salah and Harvey Elliott ahead of him in the pecking order on the right wing, patience will be required.
If Gordon impresses for the Under 18s and perhaps the Under 23s at the start of the new season then he may get some minutes in the domestic cup competitions, but we shall see how he progresses.
