Fulham seeking ‘record tribunal fee’ off Liverpool for Elliott
Fulham are hoping Liverpool are told to pay them a ‘record tribunal fee of more than £10million’ for youngster Harvey Elliott, according to a report.
The money involved in the deal – which was finalised on Sunday – will be decided by tribunal between the two clubs, with Elliott’s Fulham scholarship having expired and Liverpool’s ban on signing academy players served.
The attacking midfielder cannot sign a professional deal until he turns 17 in April, but has turned down overtures from PSG, Real Madrid and RB Leipzig to move to Merseyside.
The Evening Standard claims ‘Fulham want a compensation package which includes an upfront payment and a percentage of any profit Liverpool make on the sale of the midfielder’.
Elliott already has two Premier League appearances to his name, becoming the top flight’s youngest-ever player when he came off the bench to face Wolves in the penultimate game of last season.
The record amount of compensation provided to a team was the amount Liverpool paid Burnley for Danny Ings, when they were forced to pay £6.5m up front as well as £1.5m in add-ons, while they had to stump up another 20 per cent of the profit on his recent £20m transfer to Southampton.
