Some Liverpool supporters want Harvey Elliott to be given a squad role at Anfield next season, with one journalist predicting that could well be the case.
The Reds could arguably do with an injection of young blood in 2021/22, with the current squad slowly getting older together.
While Jurgen Klopp’s group of players aren’t exactly on their last legs, there is now a nucleus of the squad that is in and around 30 years of age, highlighting the need for reinforcements.
Someone who could help in that respect is Elliott, who is currently thriving on loan at Blackburn Rovers, having joined the Championship club last October.
The 18-year-old has scored six goals and registered a hugely impressive 11 assists in the league this season, standing out as one of the best young players in the division.
The Liverpool Echo‘s Matt Addison has tipped Elliott to be a Liverpool squad player next season, moving on to the next stage of his development.
Liverpool fans tip Elliott for squad role
These Reds supporters are fully behind the idea of the forward earning regular minutes in 2021/22, taking to Twitter to provide their thoughts.
“The way our forwards are playing he might end up being more than a squad player“
“This would be music to FSG’s ears“
“Can’t wait to see Harvey Elliott, Curtis Jones & Trent AA playing together“
“Makes sense. He’ll get good game time in the cup games and give us some depth when we lose Salah/Mane to AFCON. Can’t rely on teenagers though“
“Good, could use him since our attack has been so bad lately“
“So he should“
