Liverpool are set to sign 16-year-old Fulham midfielder Harvey Elliott, the youngest player to feature in the Premier League.

Elliott, an England Under-17 player, has rejected a scholarship at Fulham and has been courted by Europe’s heavyweights, including Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and RB Leipzig.

However, Liverpool look to have won the race to recruit him and will have to negotiate a hefty compensation package with the Championship side.

Elliott cannot sign a professional contract until he turns 17 next April but is regarded as one of the most promising teenagers in the country.
