In a near-perfect start to the campaign, Liverpool have had several standout stars in all competitions.

The Carabao Cup has allowed Jurgen Klopp to experiment while offering young academy players the opportunity to come in and make an impact on the Merseyside Reds.

Players such as Harvey Elliott and Curtis Jones were given the nod versus the MK Dons in the third round, and they surely did not disappoint in the 2-0 win.

Jurgen Klopp could have simply have reverted to his full-strength side when drawn facing Arsenal in the next round but decided to keep faith in a number of the young prospects who got them to that position.

Harvey Elliott once again shined at Anfield, and was the standout youngster in the clash, winning a penalty and highlighting his talents on one of the most significant steps.

Every time the 17-year-old shines though, it is a reminder that the Merseyside Reds could still be forced into a tribunal for his signature. Fulham are even demanding a transfer fee for the young winger that arrived on a pre-contract deal in the summer.

Football Insider have reported that Liverpool are preparing a new offer to the Championship side to avoid going to a tribunal over the summer transfer.

The reputable football outlet reports that Scott Parker’s side are demanding more than £7million, as Liverpool look to finalise the discussions.

Elliott has undoubtedly shown enough for Liverpool to push and complete an agreement, as the more he impresses, the more Fulham will certainly want for the teenager.

Finalising the contract would surely set Elliott free and push him towards cementing a spot in the first-team set up as he has already highlighted the ability he possesses.

Liverpool supporters were blown away by the teen during one of his latest plays and they would surely want to see him in Premier League action rather than with the under 23s.

The Merseyside Reds must go all out to finalise the deal with Fulham, and that could give Elliott the platform to push on at Anfield this season.
