Liverpool Set To Sign Youngest Ever Premier League Player Harvey Elliott
Liverpool look set to beat the rest of Europe's elite with a move for the youngest ever Premier League player and sign Fulham's Harvey Elliott.
Jurgen Klopp is reportedly set to sign his second exciting young prospect of the summer with the Telegraph reporting that they will sign Fulham midfielder Harvey Elliott.
The 16-year-old was not named amongst Fulham's graduates to the first team last week and is expected to sign his first professional deal with Liverpool in the near future.
The Reds are likely to have to pay a significant compensation fee for the teenager but will be very happy should they beat the rest of Europe's elite for Elliott.
Real Madrid, PSG, RB Leipzig and a number of other clubs were also attracted to the Fulham player, who became the Premier League's youngest ever last season.
Elliott made his first team debut for the Cottagers last season in the Carabao Cup, coming on as an 81st minute substitute in the game against Millwall.
He then made his Premier League debut against Wolves in May aged 16 years and 30 days to become the competition's youngest ever player, taking the record from former Fulham player Matthew Briggs.
The forward played one more game last season, playing nearly 35 minutes against Newcastle United in a 4-0 loss, his first game at home.
However getting the youngster into the first team early hasn't been enough to convince him to stay and he looks set for an automatic return to England's top tier.
Klopp clearly isn't resting on his laurels after winning the Champions League last season and is looking towards the future for the Reds.
The Premier League runners up have already added highly rated 17-year-old Dutch centre back Sepp van den Berg for £1.7 million.

The German is yet to add to his first team as the club attempt to make up the one point that separated them from Manchester City last season.
They have been heavily linked with Lille forward Nicolas Pepe but reportedly face competition from PSG and Bayern Munich, amongst others.
Who will Liverpool sign this summer and can they finally win the league?
