Harvey Elliott set for Liverpool transfer

Harvey Elliott

Harvey Elliott, one of the most highly-rated youngsters in the country, looks to have agreed a deal to sign for Liverpool.

The 16-year-old Fulham winger has reportedly rejected a host of European clubs including the likes of Real Madrid and Paris Saint Germain to make the switch to Anfield.

An England Under 17 starlet, Elliott made his debut for Fulham last September in the League Cup aged just 15 years and 174 days to become Fulham’s youngest ever first team debutant. In May, Elliott came off the bench in a Premier League fixture against Wolverhampton Wanderers to become the the youngest player ever to feature in the Premier League aged just 16 years and 30 days.

At the time Fulham skipper Tom Cairney commented: “He’s been sensation since he joined in training a few months ago.

“We see him maybe twice a week. He doesn’t look out of place and does some bits of magic that everyone says ‘wow.’

“His attitude and his belief in himself at such a young age is frightening.

“He’s a tricky winger who plays in the hole. He’s got a great football brain, an eye for goal and is a very entertaining player.

“Hopefully he will have a long and successful career.”

Fulham had hoped that Elliott would sign his first professional contract with them when he turns 17 next April but it would appear that he has rejected their offer in favour of a transfer to Liverpool.

Liverpool will have to compensate Fulham with negotiations said to be ongoing.
