Liverpool FC have secured a deal to acquire the promising 14-year-old talent, Harvey Owen, from Wolverhampton Wanderers, in a move worth a staggering £800,000 according to Football Insider.

New Regulations in Premier League

Owen, who has represented England at the under-15 level, will join Liverpool’s youth set-up during the summer transfer window. This acquisition is a testament to Liverpool’s renewed focus on nurturing homegrown talent following the changes brought about by Brexit.

Previously, Liverpool had the freedom to search internationally for young talents to bolster their youth ranks, as exemplified by the signing of Stefan Bajcetic. With the United Kingdom no longer a part of the European Union, Premier League clubs are no longer permitted to sign players under the age of 18 from foreign clubs.

Hence, new regulations now require Premier League clubs to prioritize the recruitment of exceptional British prospects, leading Liverpool to pursue Owen as an outstanding local talent.

Harvey Owen: A future investment for Liverpool

Wolves had nurtured Owen since he joined their academy at the age of seven, and he has impressed coaches during his development through various age groups.

This signing reflects Liverpool’s commitment to long-term planning and securing the future of the club and their ambition to attract and develop top young talents in the post-Brexit landscape.

Wes Hughes, Owen’s academy coach at Wolves, has spoken highly of his abilities and potential,

“Harvey was introduced to the group last year as a 13-year-old playing in the under-15s youth cup.
The boys went on and did quite well in the competition and got to the semi-final – Harvey was a part of that journey and the boys really took to him as a younger player.”

“He’s a right-footed player who likes to play on the left side at the back – whether that’s in a back three or a back four.
He’s come on leaps and bounds in terms of his football.
We truly believe if he can overcome some difficulties and embrace some of the adversity, he can surprise a few.”

“We recently played at Tottenham and he had a nice pat on the back from an ex-player in Yaya Toure.
He personally went up to Harvey and said that he had a lot of potential and would be a really good player in the future, so I think he’ll be really proud of that.”

Although it will be a while before Owen can vie for a spot in the first team, Liverpool remains optimistic about his potential. The club has invested a considerable amount in Owen, hoping that he will prove to be a bargain in the future.
