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

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.
