Harvey Elliott on NXGN list
Goal have this week released their list of the 50 best teenagers in the world, featuring the brightest talents born on or after January 1st 2002.
Harvey Elliott was named on the NXGN list in 26th place.
The list is topped by Barcelona wonderkid Ansu Fati and also features former Liverpool youngster Ki-Jana Hoever.
Elliott is described as having been a ‘sensation’ at Blackburn Rovers this season.
