Liverpool have officially confirmed that Ben Doak has extended his contract at Anfield, heralding the young and promising winger’s impressive journey through the club’s youth system.
The 17-year-old arrived from Celtic last summer and made a significant impact in his debut season with Liverpool, featuring prominently for the U18’s, U19’s, and U21’s, where he scored 10 goals and provided eight assists.
He also impressed during Liverpool’s preseason campaign where he caught the eye of Jurgen Klopp.
In November of the previous year, the teenager made his competitive debut as a substitute against Derby County in the League Cup. Since then, he has added five more first-team appearances, with the most recent being the 1-1 draw against Chelsea.
The Scot is highly regarded as one of the most promising talents in Liverpool’s Kirkby academy and is being tipped for a national team call-up after impressing with Scotland Under-21.
Ben Doak: Mohamed Salah’s replacement on the horizon?
Doak is a dynamic right winger with a strong right foot, who can seamlessly play as an attacking midfielder.
He excels in both crossing and using his left foot effectively. His style combines exceptional dribbling skills, trickery, and blazing pace, leaving defenders struggling to keep up. He tends to stay wide, exploiting spaces to stretch the game with his blistering speed.
With constant rumors surrounding Mohamed Salah’s move to the Saudi Pro League, it’s reasonable to expect that with more time under Klopp’s guidance, Doak could soon become a household name and a daunting prospect for Premier League defenders.
