The Liverpool legend says that Harvey Elliot has all the tools to become a real superstar as the youngster heads to Anfield.
Harvey Elliot will be announced as a Liverpool shortly and the youngster is definitely going to be a star according to Danny Murphy.
At the age of 16, the youngster has the world at his feet. He made his Premier League debut at the age of 16 years and 30 days for Fulham in a game against Wolverhampton Wanderers. The England Under-17 international has rejected a scholarship offer from the Cottagers and is keen on joining with Jurgen Klopp’s side.
With his star definitely on the rise, Harvey Elliot is going to the right club according to Murphy who represented both clubs as a player.
Speaking to talkSPORT, Murphy said that Liverpool would be hoping to see Harvey Elliot gain first team experience and feature in cup games next season.
“They always have the option to send him out loan [this season] but I’ve got a feeling they really must think he is ahead of his time.
“It might not transpire this summer, but in the next couple of season I would imagine they’re hoping he develops to get some first-team action.”
He continued: “He’s a great dribbler, he’s very sharp and he’s got good feet.
“He could play in one of those front three roles, that’s probably where we’d see him get his go.
“We’ll probably see him in a cup competition this season. I think this kid could be a superstar and if he has got the talent to do it, he’s at the right place.”
This summer, Liverpool have not gone big. They have relied on bringing young players starting with Sepp van den Berg. And Harvey Elliot is going to be the continuation of their priorities for this summer.
