The Liverpool first team is stacked with talent and most of the squad are tied down to long term contracts. With there also plenty of talent in the youth academy, it may be difficult for some of our hottest prospects tp gain first team experience in the near future – Liverpool should consider giving Harvey Elliott a loan move in the summer.

Liverpool signed Elliott from Fulham in the 2019 summer transfer window.

The 16-year-old winger arrived with a big reputation for a young man, he had made his Fulham first team debut aged just 15 years old, making him the youngest player in the history of the EFL Cup.

Since joining The Reds he has consistently impressed in cup fixtures, putting in strong performances against Arsenal, Everton and MK Dons.

With Mo Salah ahead of him in the pecking order and Harry Wilson set to return to the club over the summer, it may be worth sending Elliott out on loan.

 

Of course, the main objection to this is that Jürgen Klopp likes his young players in and around the club so that they can learn the Liverpool way, not the Huddersfield or Bristol City way.

However, at such a young age we have seen that Elliott can hold his own in first team football – a season of regular game time for a senior side could help him kick on massively in his development, at Anfield he is only likely to start cup matches.

With Neil Critchley having taken over at Blackpool, the Tangerines could be the ideal club for Elliott to get to grips with first team football for a season.
