The Daily Record has suggested that Glasgow Rangers should make a loan for Liverpool youngster Harvey Elliott due to Steven Gerrard’s previous connections at the club.
Gerrard has already made use of his former ties on Merseyside – Ryan Kent first joined on loan and has now made the switch permanent, whilst Sheyi Ojo and Ovie Ejaria have also appeared for the 54-time Scottish champions during the 40-year-old’s spell in Scotland.
The Record have now suggested that Gerrard should look to Elliott to be the next Red to continue his development north of the border. They said:
“It’s unlikely that a Curtis Jones or Rhian Brewster would head north but perhaps even a younger player like Harvey Elliott – who played just six minutes of English Premier League football last season – could be allowed to head out of the club and Gerrard could use his contacts there.”
At just 17 years old, Elliott is only just starting out on his career in football, but he has already made an impact at Anfield. He appeared in all of the club’s FA Cup and League Cup matches last term, whilst he also made two appearances in the Premier League.
Would you like to sign Harvey Elliott on loan?
Currently valued at £3.24m by Transfermarkt, it would be almost impossible for the Gers to sign him permanently – he is clearly highly-rated by Jurgen Klopp and co – but there have been enough flashes of his ability to indicate that he could help the 54-time Scottish champions on a short-term basis. As the Gers go in search of a first major trophy since 2011 this campaign, they need all the help they can get.
