Liverpool's 20 loaned-out players have had a mixed bag of experiences in the 2023-24 season, with new manager Arne Slot set to take over from Jurgen Klopp and reshape the squad.

Slot, who is currently managing Feyenoord, has a reputation for nurturing young talent, making him an ideal successor to Klopp, who has successfully integrated several academy players into his team. This season, a significant number of Liverpool's emerging stars have been sent out on loan - 20 in total.

Not all are ready for first-team action just yet, but many will be hoping to impress Slot when he takes the reins at Anfield. Here's how each of Liverpool's 20 loanees have performed this season, according to Mirror Football.

Calvin Ramsay

Ramsay joined Liverpool amid high expectations in the summer of 2022, but his two loan spells this season at Preston North End and Bolton Wanderers have been disappointing. The Scottish player has struggled to make his mark at either club, suggesting that another loan spell may be necessary before he's ready for Liverpool's first team.

Rhys Williams

Williams' season has been far from successful, with the defender seeing more action for Liverpool's Under-23s than during his loan spell at Aberdeen. In fact, the 23 year old rarely made it onto the bench for the Dons, indicating that he's some distance away from securing a place in Liverpool's first team.

Fabio Carvalho

Carvalho kicked off the season at RB Leipzig, but was primarily used as a super sub by the Bundesliga squad. After his relationship with Leipzig soured, he was shipped out to Hull, where he shone in their play-off push.

Despite falling just short, the Portuguese international stands a good chance of being promoted to Liverpool's first team in the new season.

Harvey Davies

Davies spent a large part of the season as Crewe's go-to keeper, but has been dropped from their squad entirely during the final stretch. Although Caominhin Kelleher is expected to be sold this summer, Davies needs another season on loan before he can be considered as a potential back-up for Alisson.

Owen Beck

Beck, who has been a standout performer for Dundee, is one of Liverpool's most impressive loanees. Before an injury sidelined him in March, Beck had been a regular starter for the Scottish side, scoring twice and providing four assists in 28 appearances, helping them secure a top-half finish.

With doubts over Kostas Tsimikas' quality, Beck is a prime candidate for a first-team call-up.

Sepp van den Berg

Van den Berg has been one of the few bright spots in a dismal season for Mainz. The 05ers have been fighting relegation all season, with Van den Berg sitting out just one match.

With Liverpool's defence set for a revamp this summer, he could be asked to step up.

Anderson Arroyo

It seems unlikely that Arroyo will ever become a regular for Liverpool. The 24 year old has been a starter for Spanish second-tier side Burgos this season, but with Conor Bradley emerging as Trent Alexander-Arnold's top back-up at right-back, a sale this summer seems probable.

James Balagizi

This season has been a let down for Balagizi, with the 20 year old struggling to make his mark on loan at either Wigan or Kilmarnock. The midfielder has only made 13 appearances in total this term and another loan move this summer seems to be his best bet.

Dominic Corness

Corness has had a successful campaign at Yvderon-Sport in the Swiss Super League, helping them likely avoid relegation. The midfielder has made 21 appearances in all competitions, though another loan move would probably be best for the 21 year old.

Adam Lewis

Lewis has had a mixed season on loan at Newport County, having several spells out of a team which endured a disappointing year in League Two. This was his second spell at Rodney Parade and a permanent move to an EFL team appears to be his most likely move this summer.

Jakub Ojrzynski

Another young Red who has had mixed fortunes out on loan is Ojrzynski, with the Polish keeper spending much of the season as back-up at Dutch second-tier side Den Bosch. He will need regular game-time on loan next season if he is to convince his parent club that he has a future at Anfield.

Billy Koumetio

Koumetio will be eager to put this season behind him as swiftly as possible. Initially, he was loaned out to Dunkerque, but a disagreement led to his return to Anfield.

The defender was then dispatched to Blackburn Rovers, but he didn't manage to make an appearance for the Championship team. It's unlikely that Slot will call him up this summer.

Luke Hewitson

The 19 year old has had a successful season with Stalybridge Celtic. The non-league side were so impressed that they extended his loan in January, and another move seems likely for Hewitson this summer.

James Norris

Despite a challenging start to the season, Norris finished the campaign as Tranmere's starting left-back. With Rovers finishing mid-table in League Two, another loan move would be best for the 21 year old's development.

Tyler Morton

Morton has been the star of Hull's bid for a play-off place in the Championship and seems to be the most likely to receive a call from Slot. He scored three goals and provided five assists in 41 appearances for the Tigers, as well as shining on the international stage for England's Under-21s.

Slot is likely looking forward to working with the young talent.

Nat Phillips

After a tough stint at Celtic, Phillips has found success at Preston. He has made 18 appearances for North End and has proven to be a reliable senior option.

However, with his contract expiring in 12 months and the Englishman keen to get more game time, it might be the right time to sell.

Luca Stephenson

Stephenson proved to be a valuable asset for Barrow this season, despite not contributing any goals or assists. His team narrowly missed out on the play-offs in the third tier and another loan move would likely be the best option for him to secure a regular position.

Vitezslav Jaros

Should Kelleher leave this summer, Jaros is the prime candidate to fill his shoes. The Czech player has made a name for himself with Sturm Graz in the Austrian Bundesliga, clinching the OFB Cup and aiding them to top the league heading into the play-offs.

Luke Chambers

Chambers has a golden opportunity to break into Liverpool's first-team during pre-season after an impressive stint at Wigan in the latter half of this campaign. He spent the first half of the year at Anfield, making several appearances in the Europa League.

However, another loan might be the best course of action for him.
