So with all the rumours swirling about what we may or may not do in the transfer window this summer, does anyone think Elliott could potentially feature somewhat prominently for the first team next season as backup for Mane and Salah? He'll only be 17, but watching Bundesliga and seeing the likes of Gio Reyna and Florian Wirtz featuring for their teams at the same age makes me wonder if Elliott, as arguably our most promising teenager, is up to it.

Well, knowing Klopp's reputation of giving young players the chance, I won't be surprised to see the likes of Elliott, Jones, Hoever and the likes getting some playing time in the league next season.

James Pearce reporting.

Quote
Harvey Elliott will sign his first professional contract, a three-year deal, at the start of July. Has made a huge impression during his first year at #LFC and rated highly by Klopp. Will get opportunities during the run-in.

FYI- At his age he can't sign for longer than 3 years.

Brilliant news that he's signed this contract (though there was little doubt he wouldn't).

Personally I think Elliott is the best attacking prospect we've had since Sterling. In terms of potential I'd put him in the bracket that includes the attacking talents of the ikes of Owen, Fowler, Sterling. If he applies himself and stays clear of injury then it's hard not to see him making 100+ appearances for the club. Had the same feeling after seeing those other players for the 1st 10-15 games.

How would he rate against players in his age group in those country and further afield? I have no idea but I'd suspect he's got to be one of the most highly rated and talented footballers under the age of 18 in World football. Think with the right coaching, attitude and a bit of luck, Elliott could easily be a regular starter for us by the time he's 19.
I think Jookie might just be the best fisherman on this thread.

Definitely possible, but I think we would see him more playing in midfield. From what we've seen of him, he doesn't look pacy and strong enough (yet) to play the role Salah or Mane plays. He prefers the ball to his feet, so maybe more of an advancing midfielder role.

Good news that he his extending his contract, and I hope to see him continuing his progress. Plenty of talent and plenty of time to develop it.

In the very limited time we’ve seen of him - I think because of his great ball skills and low gravity he will be one of those players that might not be super fast but will always be able to create a half yard of space which will allow him room to operate.

He reminds me of Garcia. Think he'll be suited to that kind of role, but I hope he's not as wasteful and frustrating as Garcia could be. Him and Jones have such quick feet. Imagine them both starting in the same midfield in 2/3 years time, would be magic.

Garcia is a good shout. I also see some David Silva similarities in his style and stature.

Thought so too. He gets into good position but also misses a lot, like Sterling when he was younger. But the important thing was the game intelligence to get into the right places to give yourself a chance. There were lots of strikers who don't have that in them.

If he adds a burst of pace he could become a brilliant player, he will need it if he’s in the front 3 positions, he’s very much in the mould of Silva. He’s one that would benefit a lot from adding some explosiveness because he’s not far from being ready from a game intelligence standpoint but he’s not got the pace or body strength that Sterling had

Yeah, everything I see of him makes me think his future for us lies in being a new Lallana, which I mean as a big compliment. Peak Lallana under Klopp was a thing of beauty.

Silva's probably a really good frame of reference as well - a player who was extremely effective as a kind of wideish n10 when deployed in the forward line of a front 3, but who was increasingly used as a kind of 8/10 hybrid player by Guardiola (again, much like Lallana for us).

He doesn't need to add a burst of pace and it's clear he will become a brilliant player.

He needs to learn from Lallana while he's still here and watch a lot of the Silva's at City.

I could be wrong but I get the impression Klopp feels more comfortable playing new/young players in the front 3 rather than in midfield. AoC, Keita, Jones, Elliot and Minamino all played in the front 3 earlier in the LFC careers, with AoC and Keita playing more and more in midfield once they had adjusted a little. I think Minamino might play in midfield a bit at some point too, depending on what our squad is looking like next season.

Just signed his first professional contract.

Quote
Harvey Elliott has today signed his first professional contract with Liverpool Football Club.

The forward has put pen to paper on a senior deal with the Reds having become eligible to do so after turning 17 on April 4.

Elliott told Liverpoolfc.com: “I think since the first day I've walked in, it's been an indescribable journey so far.

“I think now to top it off with my first professional contract is a dream come true for me and my family. I'm excited to see what the future holds and I'm just excited to give everything to the club and the fans.”

Elliott joined the club from Fulham last summer and has made eight first-team appearances so far.

The lifelong Liverpool supporters’ debut came in the EFL Cup tie at MK Dons back in September, becoming the second youngest debutant in the club’s history.

Elliott's most recent outing was as a substitute during last week’s 4-0 win over Crystal Palace at Anfield in the Premier League.

“I think when I stepped out on the Anfield pitch when I played Arsenal, I think it was an emotional thing for me,” he added. “To obviously be watching the players and to be playing them with them, honestly it's a dream come true.

“To be in and around the fans as well, to hear them singing You'll Never Walk Alone when you're stepping out on the pitch, it did bring a tear to my eye. I just can't wait to give everything back to them and just to show them what I can do.”

https://www.liverpoolfc.com/news/first-team/401100-harvey-elliott-signs-first-professional-contract-with-lfc
Rafa Benitez: "I'll always keep in my heart the good times I've had here, the strong and loyal support of the fans in the tough times and the love from Liverpool. I have no words to thank you enough for all these years and I am very proud to say that I was your manager. Thank you so much once more and always remember: You'll never walk alone."

I think it was Dom King who mentioned it a couple of months back but as he is 17 only it can be a maximum of 3 years. But he's essentially signed a 5 year deal and the 2 years remaining will kick in once he's 18.

Great news.

Think he's played well whenever he's had an opportunity this season and looked very mature in how he approaches the game. I can't imagine what it must be like to join a club like Liverpool at 16 and to experience everything that he has since then, but he looks and sounds very humble.

He's got a huge future ahead of him.

Liverpool and Fulham heading for tribunal over Harvey Elliott fee

Andy Hunter
Thu 9 Jul 2020 17.00 BST
Last modified on Thu 9 Jul 2020 17.11 BST

Liverpool and Fulham are set to go to a tribunal to decide a compensation fee for Harvey Elliott with the clubs poles apart in their valuation of the 17-year-old forward.

Elliott moved to Liverpool from Craven Cottage on academy terms last summer and has been part of Jürgen Klopp’s first-team squad for most of the season. His progress was rewarded this week with a first professional contract.

Fulham are believed to have been offered £750,000 for the highly rated teenager, whom they value at closer to £7m. Unless there is a breakthrough in negotiations a decision will have to be taken by a tribunal, with the fee decided by the Professional Football Compensation Committee.

Elliott has made eight appearances for Liverpool’s first team and Klopp recently cited the player’s development as a reason why the Premier League champions may not be busy in the transfer market.
There was a two-minute interlude where Liverpool’s three-man attack squared up against United’s three-man defence and basically stalked them back into their own penalty area, like battle-hardened mountain wolves closing in on a flock of geriatric sheep.  Barney Ronay at Anfield @barneyronay Sun 19 Jan 2020 20.36 GMT
