The 2018/19 UEFA Champions League winners, Liverpool FC have been silent in terms of signing of new experienced players this summer, though they have been linked with quite a number of players already finding their way to other clubs.

However, Goal.com reports that the Reds have confirmed and completed their second signing this summer after Dutch defender Sepp van den Berg, as they have now signed Harvey Elliott from Fulham.

The report hints that the youngster could make his debut for the Reds when they play against Italian club, Napoli, whereupon he would jet to Evian for training camp with coach Jurgen Klopp.

Liverpool were able to beat off the likes of Real Madrid, Man City, Arsenal among others in the race to sign Elliott.

The 16-year-old youngster is considered the youngest player  to have feature in the Premier League following his performance with Fulham last season, where he was given the opportunity to play with the first team.

He made his debut for Fulham in the Carabao Cup against Millwall in September at the age of 15.

He has also played against the likes of Wolverhampton and Newcastle.

Considering Elliott’s age, the Reds will not be able to give him a professional contract until next season but this doesn’t stop manager Klopp from adding him to the first-team squad at Anfield.

Elliott though may not excite the Liverpool fans just yet but he is definitely one for the future.
