Liverpool left-back Owen Beck has received a multitude of offers from across Europe to be taken on loan, according to journalist Keifer MacDonald.

The Welshman, who is the great-nephew of Liverpool’s all-time top scorer Ian Rush, made a handful of first-team appearances last season, including in the Carabao Cup Quarter Final against Leicester, which the Reds won on penalties.

He also featured in a previous round against Preston North End, as well as pre-season bouts with Athletic Bilbao and Osasuna.


Beck is one of a number of players expected to leave Anfield on loan this summer, with four - Conor Bradley, Billy Koumetio, Jakub Ojrzynski and Adam Lewis – having already landed moves.

Liverpool are not short of offers, of course, with the Echo‘s Keifer MacDonald having previously reported interest from the Premier League as well as clubs in Europe and the Championship.

McDonald said: “A move to Europe is preferred because of his style, and gives him the chance to play against Europa League and Champions League teams.”

Clubs from France, Portugal and Italy are rumoured to have made offers for the left-back, with the Reds having particular ties to the latter two.

The aforementioned Lewis and Sheyi Ojo both struggled across the channel, with spells at Amiens and Stade de Reims ending more in regression than progression.

Liverpool are also keen to maintain and exacerbate their links with the Portuguese network.

Not only did they purchase the league’s most attractive players in Darwin Nunez and Luis Diaz, but they utilise the connections made by new sporting director Julian Ward and Assistant Manager Pepijn Ljinders.


If he impresses while away from Liverpool, there is every chance he could challenge at first-team level in the future.

Alternatively, the club could eventually profit him his sale, as they are due to with Beck’s fellow Welshman Neco Williams.

He’s already had an £11m plus add-ons bud rejected by Liverpool from Nottingham Forest, with an improved offer expected soon.
