Harvey Elliott wonderkid

When Liverpool signed Harvey Elliott from Fulham in 2019 he had earned himself a reputation as one of the most exciting prospects in England.

The teenager had been courted by clubs from across Europe, he was even flown out to visit Real Madrid.

Since joining the Reds he’s made a handful of senior appearances in the cups and some sub showings in the Premier League.

This season a late decision was made to send the winger off to Blackburn Rovers on loan.

Xherdan Shaqiri had been expected to leave but he ended up staying and the Reds were dumped out of the EFL Cup early on.

Given that his minutes at Liverpool would be limited, he was sent to the Championship.

The Blackburn Rovers star dubbed Elliott a ‘special special player’ in a tweet.

What RTK has to say

It’s no surprise that those around him are recognising the talent of Harvey Elliott.

The teenager just keeps coming up with the goods.

To be performing at his level at his age in that division is just scary.

He is going to be some player in the years to come, we’re just lucky we signed him when we did. He’ll be worth a ridiculous sum soon.
