Liverpool snap up Premier League record-breaker Elliott from Fulham
Liverpool have signed record-breaking teenager Harvey Elliott from Fulham.
The England Under-17 international became the youngest player in Premier League history when he appeared against Wolves in May aged 16 years and 30 days.
Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid reportedly expressed interest in the midfielder following Fulham’s relegation to the Championship.
But the Reds have won the race to make Elliott their second signing of the close season, following the arrival of Sepp van der Berg from PEC Zwolle.
