Andre Wisdom has confirmed that he has spoken to Jurgen Klopp regarding his Liverpool future and believes that he will return to Anfield when his current loan spell is up.
The 22-year-old joined Norwich City for the season this summer, shortly after having penned a new four-year deal with the Reds.
His situation might well have changed with the sacking of Brendan Rodgers and the introduction of Klopp to the Merseyside fold, but Wisdom has revealed that he is still in touch with the powers that be at his parent club.
"My future is definitely back at Liverpool because that is my dream and that is what I want to achieve," he said, as per the Liverpool Echo.
"I’ve had a quick catch-up with him (Klopp) to see where I am and how I am progressing. He just said keep going, gain as much experience as you can, keep working hard and above all enjoy your football. I am 22, which in football terms, is not that young nowadays.
"My situation doesn’t really change. I came to Norwich at the start of the season to gain more experience and play more games so the objective stays the same. Obviously I am in contact with the new manager and the staff at Liverpool but my plans here stay the same."
It’s hardly confirmation that he’s in Klopp’s plans moving forward but at the very least Wisdom looks set to be handed his chance, which could be all he needs to stamp his authority on one of the full-back positions at Anfield.
At the moment, he has the likes of Alberto Moreno, Joe Gomez, Jon Flanagan, Nathaniel Clyne and the emerging Connor Randall to compete with for a spot in Klopp’s side, but Wisdom is young enough to stake a claim for a starting position in the future.
Chances moving forward
In any case, his loan spell at Carrow Road will certainly help him. Playing for the Canaries in the Premier League is better than sitting on the bench with the Reds, and there’s the added possibility that he might even impress Klopp if the German is keeping tabs on him.
Thus far he’s featured just five times in England’s top-flight this term, so it can be assumed he’ll have to do more if he’s to make a statement while away from Anfield.
