Signing Of English Sensation, Elliott, Confirmed By Liverpool

Merseyside outfit, Liverpool, have completed their second signing of the season after confirming the arrival of Fulham teenager, Harvey Elliott. He follows Dutch teenage defender, Sepp van den Berg, through the doors of Liverpool after the 17-year-old's arrival from PEC Zwolle was confirmed in June.

Signing Of English Sensation, Elliott, Confirmed By Liverpool

Elliot, who had a remarkable campaign at Craven Cottage during which he broke the record of being the Premier League's youngest ever player, has now joined the Reds, where he hopes to establish himself as a future star of Merseyside.

Harvey Elliott seems to be a big margin for Liverpool, as the Reds had to fend off interests from the likes of Arsenal, Manchester City, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain to sign the forward. However, it is believed that Elliott is a staunch supporter of Liverpool and that did the trick in persuading him to depart West London for Merseyside. He has been given jersey number 67.

Liverpool will most likely leave the 16-year-old forward in their final squad for the 2019/2020 season as a third choice striker behind Roberto Firmino and Divock Origi. Liverpool might be tempted to loan him back to Fulham or a smaller club in England, where they can monitor his growth rather than force him into the main team. But considering his prospects, he could still be allowed to stay with the main team, playing a considerable amount of games whilst learning from the Brazilian forward, Firmino, and Belgian, Origi.
