Jurgen Klopp will hold off on making a decision regarding Harvey Elliott’s Liverpool future until he returns to pre-season training, according to Anfield Central.
The 18-year-old enjoyed an excellent season on loan with Blackburn Rovers last term in which he scored seven goals and created 11 assists along the way for the Championship club.
Tony Mowbray’s side are said to be keen on bringing the player back to Ewood Park next term, while The Mirror have claimed that the player is also attracting interest from Premier League newcomers Watford.
Elliott has spoken of his desire to break into Liverpool’s first team set-up next term, but it seems that Klopp won’t be making a decision on the player until the squad report back for pre-season training.
Anfield Central wrote: “Liverpool’s priority with Elliott above everything is to continue his meteoric rise to the top, with the former Fulham starlet considered to be one of the most exciting talents, not just at Anfield, but in the Premier League overall.
They added: “A decision on Elliott’s future will likely only be decided after Klopp has the chance to see him in training this summer but there is no rush to make a decision on a player that is so important to the club’s long-term future.”
