Tranmere Rovers has announced the signing of Liverpool striker Paul Glatzel on a season-long loan.
The 20-year-old, who has been on the fringes of Jurgen Klopp’s first team, will link up with Micky Mellon’s side for the entire 2021/22 campaign. Glatzel missed the whole of 2019-20 for Liverpool, after sustaining an ACL injury.
Glatzel joins Tranmere with a fantastic goal scoring record, and in 2018/19, he scored 28 times for LFC’s U18s. He has represented Germany at both U15 and U16, has also played for England at youth level.
Tranmere Manager, Micky Mellon, said, “Paul has great qualities and he has joined us from a massive Premier League club. He has great technical quality, work rate and goal scoring ability alongside a desire to keep on improving. He has great ambition which is always great to work with.
“He is a player we know a lot about and when the opportunity became available to bring him in alongside building our relationship with Liverpool, it is a win-win situation. We felt it was the right move and we have brought a quality player into the group.
“He is very highly rated at Liverpool and they believe we can help him with his development and take him to the next stage and he will help Tranmere move forward with the group we already have.”
