Danny Murphy backs Fulham prospect Harvey Elliott to become a ‘great signing’ for Liverpool

Harvey Elliott is expected to join Liverpool this summer (Picture: Getty) Danny Murphy believes Harvey Elliott can become a great player for Liverpool once his move from Fulham is finally completed. The 16-year-old is on course to become Jurgen Klopp’s second signing of the summer after agreeing personal terms with Liverpool following the expiry of his youth contract at Fulham. Elliott was in the stands as Liverpool thrashed Tranmere Rovers 6-0 during their first game of pre-season and has been tipped to join up with Klopp’s first-team squad upon his arrival. Murphy represented both Liverpool and Fulham during his playing days and he sees no reason why the England U17 international can’t make a name for himself at Anfield. Jurgen Klopp has had a quiet summer so far (Picture: Getty) Speaking to Bwin, Murphy said: ‘Harvey Elliott would be a great signing for Liverpool and the right move for the player. Liverpool are in a very stable position with Klopp and as a youngster, Elliott wouldn’t have to worry about another manager coming in and not seeing him as part of his future plans. ‘Klopp has a great record of giving younger players a chance to prove themselves and I’m sure Elliott will get the same opportunity if he buys in to Klopp’s plan. This would give him a great chance to play and train with some of the best players in the world and see what it takes at the top. ‘He’s very young and has the chance to develop at Liverpool and then spend a season out on loan if need be. It’s a great opportunity for the player and one I can’t see him passing up on.’ More: FootballDanny Murphy backs Fulham prospect Harvey Elliott to succeed at LiverpoolMaisie Williams prepares to lick Emmys competition by practicing on her boyfriendGary caught over two deaths in Corrie tonight Elliott broke a Premier League record in May when he became the youngest player in the competition’s history, featuring in a 1-0 defeat to Wolves at the age of 16-years and 30 days.

Klopp has been coy over his transfer plans and has hinted that the club will not be particularly active after winning the Champions League last season.
