Hoever played 13 times and scored two goals in the Under-17 Eredivisie during the 2017–18 season. Described as equally as comfortable playing at centre-half and right-back, Hoever completed his move to Liverpool in August 2018 from Ajax but had to wait until September 2018 for international clearance.

Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea were also reportedly interested in making the signing.
Hoever made his first Liverpool appearance in a 4–1 win for the under-18s against Newcastle on 15 September. Following that he was given a substitute appearance in the Reds’ UEFA Youth League match at home to Paris Saint-Germain that ended in a 5–2 win on 18 September 2018.
