Liverpool always have one eye on the future, this has been evidenced by their youth recruitment policy. We’ve seen Michael Edwards hoovering up some of the brightest talents in Europe in recent years. The raft of talented youngsters have given us plenty to get excited about, one player more than most. Harvey Elliott has been ranked as the top performing player in the Championship, Harry Wilson is second.
You can save a lot of money by making superstars instead of buying them.
The Reds have living by this policy for some years now, the tactic manifesting throughout our transfer business: from the bargain buy of Andy Robertson to the signing of Billy Koumetio.
There are a number of talents in the academy at the minute, primed to step into the first team in the coming years, preventing the need to spend tens of millions on ready made stars.
Harvey Elliott, arguably the most exciting teenager on the books, is currently tearing it up at Blackburn.

Harvey Elliott top of Championship
According to the Sofascore rankings, Harvey Elliott is the top performing player in the Championship with Harry Wilson in second place.
Elliott was loaned to Blackburn Rovers on deadline day with first team opportunities limited at Anfield due to the exit from the EFL Cup and Xherdan Shaqiri sticking around.
Harry Wilson joined Cardiff City for the season after a permanent move failed to materialise for the winger.
The pair have been in fine form since joining their loan clubs. Wilson has scored twice since joining the Bluebirds.
Harvey Elliott has bagged three assists and a goal for the Rovers.
What RTK has to say
These are encouraging numbers to say the least.
Some were worried about how Elliott would get on in such a physical league but he has certainly taken the opportunity in his stride.
As long as he continues his form and development he could well play a role for the Reds next season, this first team experience could prove vital for the youngster.
Harry Wilson has also put himself in the shop window with his performances, Michael Edwards will be hoping to cash in in the summer.
