Liverpool want another Diogo Jota-like game-changing option to have in reserve for next season - and they may already have the perfect player in their squad. Jota has been superb this season since signing from Wolves for a fee of up to £45million in the summer and has scored 12 goals in 23 matches.

With a lack of goals from midfield, it has left Liverpool largely reliant on Mohamed Salah - and Jota when he's been fit - as their main goal threat with the Egyptian hitting the back of the net 27 times this term.

Liverpool, as they look to freshen up a squad that has underperformed this term albeit having been hit hard by injuries, will be eager to replicate the success of Jota with whoever they pick as their fifth and sixth-choice attackers next term.

MUST READ: Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has problem with three stars.

Elliott evidently feels he can prove to Jurgen Klopp in pre-season that he can be a valuable option for Liverpool, with it having been reported recently that the German coach wants to take another look at the Premier League's youngest ever player over the summer.

Elliott, predominantly a right-sided forward who can play as a No 10 or on the left, is a different type of player to the trio, and to Jota, and is more akin to the creative Shaqiri though would operate better than the Swiss does under Klopp.

While he may not offer the same goalscoring capabilities as a Jota or a Salah, if Elliott can produce the kind of energetic displays he's managed in the Championship at Liverpool, he can be a genuine difference maker for them as early as next season.
