Liverpool preparing long-term contract for 16-year-old forward

Reds are reportedly in talks with Harvey Elliott regarding a new deal. U17 England international joined Liverpool from Fulham last summer and has played seven games for the senior team so far including a Premier League match with Sheffield United in winter.

All in all, Harvey has featured 27 matches, netting four goals and providing nine assists. Reds are in talks with Elliott regarding a new contract, and a deal over the terms are close to being reached. This report also claims that he will sign his first professional contract a three-year contract, a three-year one after turning 17 next month.

Harvey has done well for the youth and reserve teams so far. He is among the finest young prospects in Reds youth setup and tying a new contract would be good for the club. It would undoubtedly be very tough for him to be a regular starter under Jurgen Klopp but provided he keeps doing well for the reserves, there’s a chance we could him receive more first-team chances next campaign.

Liverpool have fantastic consequences in the Premier League this campaign as they are leading the table. Merseyside giants signed several players during the summer transfer window like Sepp van den Berg from Zwolle, Harvey Elliott from Fulham, Spanish goalkeeper Adrian and English shot-stopper Andy Lonergan.

Reds also added Takumi Minamino from RB Salzburg in January. English club heavily linked with RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner, Vasco da Gama centre-forward Talles Magno, Bayer Leverkusen playmaker Kai Havertz, Aston Villa attacker Jack Grealish, Real Madrid midfielder Isco and PSG superstar Kylian Mbappe.
