Liverpool are poised to beat Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain to the
signature of Fulham's teenage midfielder Harvey Elliott.
The young player cannot turn professional until his seventeenth birthday next April, but it is
understood he will reject a scholarship at Craven Cottage and move to the Champions League
Elliott, who also attracted attention from Arsenal and Manchester City, will become the
second emerging talent to join Liverpool this summer after seventeen-year-old Dutch
defender Sepp van den Berg moved from PEC Zwolle.
Elliott became the youngest player to feature in the Premier League when he came on as a
substitute against Wolverhampton Wanderers in May at sixteen years old.
If, as expected, Liverpool win the race to sign Elliott, they will have to negotiate a
compensation package with Fulham as the England Under-17 international is regarded as a
highly prized prospect.
