Liverpool have secured the future of a promising young forward after American U-17 international Keyrol Figueroa signed his first professional contract with the club.

The 17-year-old has been banging in goals at every age group since joining the Reds’ academy at just 14 years old. Liverpool themselves described Figueroa as a “prolific goalscorer” in their official announcement, hinting at the excitement surrounding his development.

Figueroa’s ability isn’t limited to just finishing. He’s also comfortable playing as a wide attacker, offering versatility to manager Jurgen Klopp’s attacking options. His talent was on display during the 2023 CONCACAF U-17 Championship, where he netted seven goals and helped the USA reach the final. He also featured in last year’s U-17 World Cup, gaining valuable experience on the international stage.

Following his impressive climb through the Liverpool academy ranks, Figueroa recently found the net for the club’s U-18 side against Wolverhampton Wanderers. The youngster seems to be ticking all the right boxes, and his progress will be closely monitored by fans and coaches alike.

Interestingly, Figueroa comes from a footballing family. His father, Maynor Figueroa, is a former defender who played for Wigan Athletic and the Honduran national team.

This signing signifies Liverpool’s commitment to nurturing young talent, and Figueroa has the potential to become a valuable asset for the club in the coming years. Reds supporters around the world will be eager to see how this exciting prospect develops under the watchful eye of Jurgen Klopp and his coaching staff.
