Elliott, who is widely regarded as one of England’s brightest young hopefuls, joined Fulham after failing his contract at Craven Cottage.
Liverpool are hopeful that Elliott will one day join the exciting nucleus of British players featured in the first team of Jurgen Klopp. Captain Jordan Henderson, James Milner, Adam Lallana, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez, Andy Robertson and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain display all national flags at Melwood.
Another very promising prospect for Liverpool is Rhian Brewster, but what British wonders should the Reds be aware of?
Liverpool is one of many teams to be linked to the wonder of Birmingham City, Bellingham. At 16, Bellingham is leading league games and reports suggest he will become Britain’s most expensive teenager this summer with Manchester United to watch.
The numbers circulating are astronomical and can discourage Liverpool, but regular observers at Bellingham are confident that it is destined to reach the top.
Another eye-catching playmaker in the championship is Eze of the Queens Park Rangers.
The 21-year-old’s skill and technique have been on display for three seasons at Loftus Road, but he’s just starting to get the attention he really deserves.
Eze has 20 goals in 37 league games for QPR this quarter and looks set to play Premier League football next season.
Born in Liverpool, Matondo is one of the young British men who followed Jadon Sancho during his trips abroad. Matondo took a path similar to that of Sancho by leaving Manchester City for the German club Schalke where he had been for a year.
The Welsh international does not have the same success as Sancho but he accumulates an experience to which he would not have been exposed with City.
The winger scored his lone goal of the season in Schalke’s impressive 3-1 victory over RB Leipzig in September and played 21 games in total.
Gomes, who has been capped by England to the under-20 level, is currently on contract with Manchester United.
The best European clubs are hiding with Gomes’s Old Trafford deal, which is set to expire in the coming months.
“The boy trains daily and works hard and his talent is incredible,” said United legend Nicky Butt, who now coaches the club’s youth.
“His work ethic, the way he approaches training every day and the way he approaches games, which he plays for the reserve team, the under-19 team, the first team, is perfect and that he is a very talented boy. “
Unless United moves, these talents will be used elsewhere and Liverpool’s signing of Dominic Solanke in 2017 shows their ability to poach the best youngsters from their rivals.
Loader is another teenager whose contract is about to expire. The striker has been in talks with Reading about an extension to what looks like eternity, but no conclusion has been reached.
Reading presented his latest proposal to Loader in December, but the 19-year-old’s future seems to lie elsewhere.
Wolves tried to sign Loader in a discounted deal last summer, but will face increased competition after his Reading contract ends.
Players whose contracts are due to expire are a hallmark here, and Ferguson’s future seems to be far from West Bromwich Albion.
The 19-year-old right-back, who started 21 league games this quarter, appeared to be heading for Crystal Palace in January, but that decision failed.
Liverpool have the best young European side back in Alexander-Arnold, but adding a potential player from Ferguson would not hurt.

Barry is a player that Reds fans may not have heard of, but there is great news in the Midlands.
The 16-year-old, who former Reds CEO Christian Purslow says is “the best 16-year-old in the country,” left Barcelona to join Aston Villa in January.
His move to Villa came just six months after leaving West Brom to join Barcelona, rejecting PSG in particular.
Barry sets himself apart from the English teams under the age of 1 and begins to make a name for those under 23 with Villa.
It seems to be a matter of time, not if, he makes his professional debut and there is no doubt that Barry will one day represent one of the greatest clubs in England.
