Liverpool set to sign PL's youngest ever player who made history with Fulham

Liverpool are in pole position to sign Fulham teenager  Harvey Elliott from Fulham, as they bolster their squad ahead of next season. 

Once the deal is complete, Elliot will become Jurgen Klopp's second summer signing,  after the Reds signed 17-year-old defender Sepp van den Berg from PEC Zwolle last month.

Elliot made history by becoming the youngest player in the Premier League history in May 2019, when he came on as a substitute in their match against Wolves aged 16 years.

He first appeared in the senior team during a Carabao Cup match against Millwall, aged 15 years and 174 days.

Liverpool are thought to have beaten competition from European clubs including Real Madrid, Manchester City, and PSG, who were all interested in the exciting forward.

Fulham boss Scott Parker once described the teenager as a special talent, further commending his attitude on and off the pitch. 

“He's been a sensation since he joined in training a few months ago,” he said. “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 got a great football brain, an eye for goal and is a very entertaining player.”

The Reds are said to be content with the squad they have, and might not invest a lot in new marquee signings before the start of the campaign.
