Liverpool have made their second signing of the summer in the shape of 16-year old Harvey Elliott from Fulham.
The teenager made Premier League history last season when he became the youngest player ever to feature in the Premier League when he came on as a substitute against Wolves. He joins another teenager Sepp van der Berg, as the only players that Liverpool have brought in during the summer transfer window.
Liverpool have been quiet compared to their other major rivals in the Premier League and also in Europe this season, and manager Jurgen Klopp has now spelled out the reason for that to the club’s supporters.
The German said “”We have to pay bills. Sorry. Everybody has to pay bills; we have to pay bills. We invested money in this team. Now it looks like we are not. But we are not in this fantasia land where you just get whatever you want.”
Klopp then went on to state that whereas four clubs – Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester City and PSG – are able to keep spending big money season after season, Liverpool are not in the same situation, and have to live within their means.
