Published 11th January 2023

Lewis Koumas has signed his first professional contract with Liverpool FC.

The 17-year-old joined the Reds as an U11 player from Tranmere Rovers and has played primarily as a striker for the U18 group this season.

His highlights include a four-goal haul against Middlesbrough on opening day, a double against Manchester City and a goal against Dinamo Zagreb in the Premier League International Cup.

Koumas combines his goalscoring instincts with a prodigious work ethic and a desire to keep defenders under maximum pressure.

As well as top-scoring for the U18s, he has gained valuable experience with the U19 group in the UEFA Youth League and stepped up into the U21s for action in the Papa Johns Trophy.

He can also play in midfield, a position where his father Jason thrived in a successful career, which took him to the Premier League and international football with Wales.
