Ex-Liverpool & Fulham star Murphy: Elliott has superstar potential

Harvey Elliott

According to the Telegraph, the reigning UEFA Champions League holders have agreed on a transfer deal with Fulham for Elliott's signature.

Paris Saint Germain, Real Madrid, Barcelona, Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig all had designs on securing the services of the 16-year-old, who became the youngest-ever Premier League player in May.

But the highly-rated midfielder - who is a boyhood Liverpool fan - has rejected a scholarship with the Craven Cottage club, who were relegated back to the Championship last term.

The report added that Elliott will sign a professional three-year contract with the Anfield club when he turns 17 in April 2020.

Elliott, who also attracted attention from Arsenal and Manchester City, will become the second emerging talent to join Liverpool this summer after 17-year-old Dutch defender Sepp van den Berg moved from PEC Zwolle. He's a tricky winger who plays in the hole.


"It might not transpire this summer, but in the next couple of seasons I would imagine they're hoping he develops to get some first-team action".

"We see him maybe twice a week".

Murphy said of Elliott's qualities: "He's a great dribbler, he's very sharp and he's got good feet".

He also came off the bench in the Cottagers' 4-0 loss to Newcastle United on the final day of the season - and that looks to be his last game in Fulham colours.
