Fulham seeking substantial Elliott compensation from Liverpool

Cape Town - Fulham are reportedly hoping to receive a tribunal fee of at least £10 million following youngster Harvey Elliott's move to Liverpool.

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 wants 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 £6.5 million upfront as well as £1.5 million in add-ons, while they had to stump up another 20% of the profit on his recent £20 million transfer to Southampton.
