Nwaneri made headlines last weekend by becoming the youngest ever player to feature in the Premier League, coming on in stoppage time for Arsenal in their win against Brentford.
Appearing in the top flight at 15 years, 181 days, Nwaneri beat out Sunderland’s Derek Forster by three days to put his name in the record books. While the youngster didn’t make a massive impact in the few minutes he was given, the fifteen-year-old shows a lot of promise.
The midfielder plays as a number 10, but is versatile. While simply tracking progress doesn’t necessarily mean anything, Liverpool have shown in recent windows that they’re interested in this younger age group as a part of succession planning.
