Liverpool have struck gold with Harvey Elliott

Jurgen Klopp has totally revolutionised Liverpool since his arrival in October 2015, winning every honour available to him aside from the Europa League and making the Anfield side one of the best teams in Europe.

He has signed players such as Mohamed Salah, Virgil van Dijk and Alisson who have become integral parts of his side, but one of his greatest feats is introducing a variety of youngsters into his first team over the years.

Trent Alexander Arnold and Curtis Jones have been two of the best players to emerge from the youth system into the Liverpool side, however, Klopp struck gold with another player who has continued to stake his claim, especially this season…

Liverpool struck gold on Elliott

Harvey Elliott signed for the club from Fulham in the summer of 2019, with the Anfield side having to pay a fee of £4.3m ruled by a tribunal to secure his services, however, it has proven to be a sound investment.

His first full season saw Klopp give the youngster matches in both the EFL and FA Cups, playing eight senior games in total before joining Blackburn Rovers on a loan deal the following season.

His spell in the Championship was a success, he registered 19 goal contributions – seven goals and 11 assists – proving that he could shine in a demanding league.

Despite his impressive spell in the second tier, it has taken until this season for Klopp to reward him with constant game time and Elliott has repaid the manager’s faith in him, especially in the Champions League.

The 19-year-old has scored twice in five matches and has contributed all over the pitch, winning 54% of his total duels, completing 56% of his dribbles, and making 0.8 key passes per match.

These displays have led football writer Leanne Prescott to lavish praise upon him, saying: “No matter where he is on the pitch, he makes things happen.” And it looks like he will be a mainstay in the Liverpool midfield now.

CIES Football Observatory have valued Elliott at an eye-catching €30m (£25.8m) and this represents a massive increase from the fee Klopp paid to sign him.

Liverpool's Mohamed Salah and Ajax's Perr Schuurs

First up in this 2020/21 season quiz, how many PL goals did Mo Salah score?

If he continues to deliver on the pitch, there is no reason why this valuation can’t continue to rise and the club could generate a ridiculous profit if they sold him.

Although, the German will believe this is just the start of the journey for the youngster and will want to see him develop at Liverpool.
