Stan Collymore has claimed that young attacker Harvey Elliott will “undoubtedly” go on to become a very good player for Liverpool in the future.

Liverpool signed Elliott, 16, from Fulham in the summer transfer window after he became the youngest player in Premier League history for the London club before their relegation last season.

Jurgen Klopp only signed him, Sepp van den Berg and Adrian in the summer and Collymore is full of hope over what the future holds for the likes of Elliott.

“The transfer window is now closed, they brought in younger players like Harvey Elliott that will undoubtedly go on to be very good players and he’s a big Liverpool fan,” said Collymore on The Last Word podcast [51m onwards].

OPINION

Elliott has been giving off all the signs of someone who Jurgen Klopp holds high hopes for. Since joining Liverpool, the teenager has already featured in the first-team in their pre-season friendlies and is also in Istanbul as part of the squad for the Super Cup showdown against Chelsea on Wednesday night. It remains to be seen whether or not Elliott features in many competitive fixtures for the senior side this season but based on the way that Klopp has used him so far, the England youth international is bound to be involved in cup games or maybe even the Premier League at some stage if there are injuries in the Liverpool attack. Van den Berg is another highly-rated youngster who may well get a shot at centre-back this season with reports saying that Dejan Lovren could be on his way out of Anfield with Roma said to be interested.
