Liverpool Transfer News: Jurgen Klopp lands Harvey Elliott, the youngest player ever to play in the Premier league at the age of 16.
In a declaration by Liverpool on their official website, Liverpool have signed Harvey Elliott from Fulham this summer. The 16-year-old player is the youngest player to ever appear in the Premier league after appearing twice for the London based club.

This is the second teenage signing by the Reds this summer, as the club earlier signed the 17-year-old Sepp Van Den Berg from Zwolle before hiring Elliott.
Surprisingly, these are the only two signings made by the Kopites, and they are yet to hire a first team starter player to bolster their squad. Even though the club aspire to land more significant signings to achieve more laurels.
Elliott became the youngest debutant in Premier League history when he featured against Wolverhampton Wanderers – aged 16 years and 30 days, in May.
The Reds seem to be impressed by the youngster in his only three appearances in the Premier league so far. The English youth player is a midfielder, and seems promising with his talent, but is yet to get a role in the first team.
Liverpool further informs that Elliott will now be part of the Liverpool squad for Sunday’s friendly against Napoli in Edinburgh and the subsequent training camp in Evian.
With the transfer window soon closing down, it looks slim that Liverpool will be able to land a mega signing this summer, as they have backed out from the pursuit of all bright prospects.

Harvey Elliot was born 5 months after James Milner made his Premier League debut and 6 months before Steven Gerrard was named Liverpool captain. And 8 Mile had just come out on DVD. Harvey… the Rabbit?
