Harvey Elliott has suggested that he wants to play more football for Liverpool next season, with the midfielder already making 45 appearances for the Reds this campaign.
Speaking to Liverpool’s official website, the former Fulham wonderkid has hinted that he wants to take his game to the next level in the new season, with Elliott saying he wants play even more for Jurgen Klopp having established himself as a key player this year.
The England youth international has made 25 starts in all competitions for Liverpool this season, playing over 2,200 minutes and firmly making a name for himself as one of the Anfield side’s most exciting young talents, and there’s every reason to believe that Elliott can get better in the new campaign.
With Liverpool likely to be competing in the UEFA Europa League, Elliott has every chance to gain even more European experience having featured this season in every UEFA Champions League match for Klopp, and the midfielder seems adamant that he will make a statement next term.
Elliott said: “For me personally to play as much as I have and to keep putting the red shirt on, there’s nothing more I want to do in my life. It’s just a privilege each and every day to go out and train with these lads and in front of these fans to play here at Anfield. Long may it continue.”
Elliott will want to hit new heights with Liverpool next season
At 20-years-old, it’s safe to assume that Elliott is living the dream at Liverpool, yet with just five goals and two assists in all competitions, there’s room for the midfielder to grow, and next season could see the English youngster achieve just that.
Adding goals and assists to his game will be a defining factor for Elliott in his Liverpool career, and whilst the midfielder’s tally has been low this year, more playing time next year and competing in the Europa League could all push the youngster to the next level.
