In the last 18 months Rafa has shown a renewed interest in building up his squad and adding fresh young talent to go with the good work happening in the club’s academy. Of the three Monnet-Paquet is perhaps the brightest talent, his efforts this term have helped his Lens side to top of the Ligue 2 table and he has been handed a place in the French Under 21 set up as a result. Do Liverpool need more young talent or should be concentrating on getting established players to help challenge for first team positions and keep the regular eleven on their toes?
