Building a team for the long term is the new sporting director of Liverpool’s basic task for the upcoming seasons. Julian Ward, though, is well aware that it is easier said than done.

Despite the difficulties that come with creating new teams, Ward has done a commendable job thus far. He has already signed three exciting players this summer, all of whom are under the age of 23, and he has also secured Mohamed Salah with a new contract.

Although all three newcomers have promise, their success won’t be known until later, and Ward won’t be depending solely on their presence to replace an aging Liverpool team.

The quandary surrounding Mohamed Salah had been one of the major problems the club’s new sporting director had to deal with. This summer, the Egyptian turned 30 and requested a sizable new deal to reflect his position as one of the finest players in the world.

However, Ward had to persuade FSG to breach a long-standing principle they hadn’t really done previously on the size of the Egyptian in order to give Salah something that came near to what he desired.

Salah’s three-year contract extension, which Ward ultimately achieved while standing perilously near to the edge, means that Liverpool’s need to replace the Egyptian is now a long-term issue rather than a short-term one, and the team can look at younger possibilities.

Through the likes of Kaide Gordon and Ben Doak at the academy, the Reds already have a few long-term solutions, but earlier this week, another potential target may have surfaced.

Serge Ngoma’s quick pressing and skillful finish demonstrated several crucial actions needed to be in Jürgen Klopp’s team as he raced onto a stray pass to dislodge his defensive opponents, broke through clear on goal, and deposited the ball delicately into the back of the net to score his first MLS goal.

The fact that Ngoma is only 16 years old will have been even more stunning, and should have been reason enough for Liverpool to pay attention. He became the 12th 16-year-old to score in the league overall since the league’s establishment, making him the second-youngest player in league history for New York Red Bull.

Ngoma, who plays for the second-tier New York Red Bulls team in the USA, broke the record for the youngest player in the league two seasons ago when he was just 15 years old. He is currently regarded as one of the most promising young players in the MLS.

There are echoes of a typical Liverpool forward in his quick, intelligent, goal-oriented style of play, and the Reds would be wise to keep an eye on his development, especially given their close relationship with Red Bull and the fact that they have previously acquired players from both RB Leipzig and Red Bull Salzburg.

Given his versatility, he might even end up serving as Liverpool’s right-wing replacement in the event that Salah decides to leave the club once his current three-year contract expires.

Ngoma might be the next player on that list given the expansion of the MLS and the many players who have recently made the transition to Europe, like Alphonso Davies, Tyler Adams, and Brenden Aaronson. He might wind up at Liverpool if he continues to draw attention.
