Vienna finished third in their league last season, which means they’re qualified for the Europa League play-off rounds and bid to make the group stages of the competition.

Kouemetio, who joined the Reds in 2018 from French side Orléans, has made two first-team appearance.

His debut arrived against FC Midtjylland in the Champions League in 20.

The France youth international was also part of the under-18s squad that reached the FA Youth Cup final in 2020-21.

Kouemetio is the third youngster to leave Liverpool during the summer transfer window.

Adam Lewis yesterday moved to League Two club Newport County on a season-long loan.

The 22-year-old has previously spent time at Amiens SC, Plymouth Argyle and Livingston.
