Fulham take Liverpool to a tribunal to claim higher fee for Harvey Elliot

Fulham will take Liverpool to an independent tribunal after the two clubs failed to come to an agreement on a fee for the transfer of Harvey Elliott. The freshly crowned Premier League champions signed Elliot from the Cottagers last summer but have failed to reach an agreement on the compensation for the 17-year-old.

According to the Times, Fulham were offered an initial €800.000 for the winger, which they rejected. The London club claims that Elliot represents a much bigger value and therefor claim to have the right for a larger compensation. The report claims Fulham values Elliot at around €8m.

The Liverpool youngster signed his first professional deal earlier this week, keeping him at Anfield until the summer of 2023. He has also made his debut for the Reds this season, playing a total of 8 games for Jurgen Klopp’s side. In 2019 Elliot became the youngest player ever to play in the Premier League when he played against Wolverhampton Wanderers last season for Fulham.
