Rhian Brewster will be given a chance to force his way into Jurgen Klopp's first-team plans when Liverpool head to their pre-season training camp in France.
The Reds are set to return to Evian this month to begin their preparations for next season.
Brewster will be going along with the rest of the squad after his impressive loan spell with Swansea, where he netted 11 goals in 22 games.
That form has caught the attention of Klopp who is now open to the idea of Brewster providing back-up to his attackers.
Klopp was originally in the market for a forward this summer but has been forced to reconsider his transfer plans due to the club's lack of spending power.
As reports The Mail, 20-year-old Brewster could now fill that void if he makes a good impression in pre-season.
The youngster featured in Liverpool's early build-up matches last summer, scoring four goals in their first three games.
Klopp now wants to assess Brewster with the idea of possibly keeping him at Liverpool where he can help him develop under his watch.
The alternative would be to send the striker back out on loan again next season, with Swansea keen to take him back.
Ben Woodburn has also impressed Klopp and Liverpool coaches after his loan spell at Oxford United despite only playing 16 times.
The midfielder missed much of the season through injury but has returned to full fitness.
According to the Liverpool Echo, coaches at the club believe Woodburn has never looked better since returning to Melwood.
In particular they have been pleasantly surprised by how the spell has matured Woodburn both physically and mentally.
The plan now is to find a suitable club to send Woodburn back out on loan again to further his development.
Several sides across Europe are keen, with interest coming from England, Germany, Belgium and Holland, with Bundesliga 2 outfit Fortuna Dusseldorf serious candidates.
