Jürgen Klopp’s 32-man team for the on-going training camp in the German state of Baden-Württemberg includes the 17-year-old among numerous Academy players.

The son of former player Jason, Koumas frequently visits Anfield to cheer on his beloved Reds while honing his skills in the Kirkby junior system.

But as Liverpool intensifies their preseason preparations, he is now firmly in the company of those he has long admired.

I’m excited about it. Since I was a young child, playing for the first team has been my goal, he admitted to Liverpoolfc.com.

“Honestly, I feel like I’m hiding behind a screen while I’m here. seeing guys I admire, such as Luis Diaz, who I first saw play at Anfield last season and who I now stand behind. Really, that simply seems ridiculous.

“I was on vacation when I was called in with the 21s a week before I was supposed to be in. A few times during the week, I practiced with the first team, and the night before, I received a call informing me that I would be traveling.

“When I first heard the news, I was really ecstatic, but as the moment became closer, I started to feel nervous. There isn’t anywhere to hide, I believe. They will let you know if you drop the ball or make a few poor choices, but I’m doing okay.

Under the watchful eye of Reds U18s manager Marc Bridge-Wilkinson, Koumas began preseason last summer.

He started out as a midfielder but has since shifted more frequently to a striking position at the youth level. He seized the opportunity and kept it up after scoring four goals in his first competitive game of the previous term.

On the second day of training in Germany, Szoboszlai scores with a little help from Mac Allister.

It’s a great opportunity to be in and around Champions League champions to come and learn from some of the top players in the world, he concluded.

“I feel for me; I need to come here and demonstrate my abilities to the manager. And of course, if I do have the chance to make my debut, I’ll aim to score a goal.

“The debut with the first team is definitely what I’m aiming for. I need to make sure I take advantage of this opportunity because it might be my only one.

Jason, his father, had a successful career that included playing for Wales at the national and Premier League levels.

Lewis responded, “My dad was a really excellent player and a lot of people know that, so I haven’t sought career guidance. More likely, it’s if I have a query or something. Dad basically lets me be and lets me pursue my own interests.

But I will surely go and ask him if I have a question.
