The youngster made his debut for his new side in Liverpool’s 3-0 pre-season defeat against Napoli on Sunday, and Klopp later labelled Elliott ‘a fine, fine footballer’.
‘I can say many positive things about the boy because we have signed him and he decided to join us when he could have gone pretty much anywhere,’ the German boss said.
‘He wanted to be part of Liverpool because of his talent.

‘Now that he is here, let’s work with him. He needs game time, we have to see where he will get that.
‘He is obviously a fine, fine footballer – that is the reason why we were really interested.’
Klopp also indicated that winger Ryan Kent is likely to leave on a permanent basis, despite the 22-year-old’s positive spell at Rangers last season.

‘His time is over for loans,’ Klopp added.
‘At the age he is now, he needs to find a place where he can settle. We will see what happens but a loan is not planned.
‘He came back as a completely different player and it was a very important year for him.’
