Report: Fulham will demand £9m for Liverpool target Harvey Elliott

Liverpool reportedly want to sign Harvey Elliott from Fulham in the summer transfer window.

Harvey Elliott of Fulham looks on prior to the Premier League match between AFC Bournemouth and Fulham FC at Vitality Stadium on April 20, 2019 in Bournemouth, United Kingdom.

According to The Sunday People (print edition, page 51, July 14, 2019), Fulham will demand £9 million as transfer fee from Liverpool for Harvey Elliott.

It has been reported that the attacking midfielder will sign a youth contract with Liverpool, as he cannot put pen to paper on a professional deal with the Reds until he turns 17 in April.

 

Fulham and Liverpool have reportedly failed to come to an agreement over the fee, which will be decided by a tribunal, with the Cottagers to demand £9m.

Bargain fee?

Elliott is only 16 years of age, and the £9m fee does sound a lot for someone who made his Premier League debut only in May, but in the long run, that could prove to be a bargain.

The 16-year-old attacking midfielder is very promising and has a lot of talent, and playing in the Liverpool youth system and working with first-team manager Jurgen Klopp from time to time will also help him develop and progress as a footballer.
