Lots of Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to react after the signing of Fulham wonderkid Harvey Elliott was confirmed.
The 16-year-old starlet was attracting interest from the likes of Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and RB Leipzig, and looked destined to leave the Cottagers after rejecting a scholarship deal – Scott Parker’s side will be due a significant compensation package after Liverpool swooped in to sign the attacker.
Elliott became the youngest player in Premier League history back in May when he appeared as a late substitute against Wolves, featuring at just 16 years and 30 days old.
The teenager is also Fulham’s youngest ever first-team appearance maker, after playing in the EFL Cup at just 15 years and 174 days.
He becomes Liverpool’s third signing of the summer after the Reds also completed deals for 17-year-old Sepp van den Berg and 35-year-old goalkeeper Andy Lonergan.
Let’s take a look at how the Liverpool fans on Twitter reacted to the news…
