Liverpool's 'Polish Messi' set to leave Anfield

Liverpool youngster Mateusz Musialowski looks set to depart Merseyside, with a number of loan-to-buy options on the table.

Hype built around Musialowski, who joined the Liverpool academy in 2020, despite interest from Arsenal. The tricky winger was even dubbed the 'Polish Messi' for his dribbling ability and wonder goals.

His first two seasons across the Reds' youth set up saw him pick up 15 goal contributions in 25 games across season 2020/21, and 11 in 26 the following year.

However, despite his early stellar form, the 19-year-old endured an underwhelming season in 2022/23 — netting just two goals in 17 appearances — and he has never managed to break into the first team. Meanwhile, other young wing talents like Ben Doak and Kaide Gordon have surpassed him in terms of development.

Now, it seems that the promising youngster looks destined to leave the club.

First reported by This Is Anfield, Lech Poznan, Gornik Zabrze, Widzew Lodz and LKS Lodz have all emerged as potential destinations for Musialowski, with loan and loan-to-buy options being considered by the interested clubs.

The Polish winger has just one year left on his current deal with Liverpool, and the potential move follows news that he left his previous agent in order to give his parents the responsibility of looking after his footballing interests.

While Musialowski's talent is without question, he has been unable to make that all-important next step for the Reds, and now his departure looks increasingly likely as he searches for first-team football.
