Liverpool set to find out how much they must pay for teenage sensation Harvey Elliott after failing to meet Fulham’s £8m demand… with tribunal to decide compensation for winger after Reds offered just £750,000
- Liverpool and Fulham are still haggling over a fee for Harvey Elliott
- The teenage winger joined the Reds from west London in the summer of 2019
- Teams must pay a compensation fee for players under 24 signed on free deals
- A tribunal on Tuesday will announce the fee that Liverpool have to pay for Elliott
- The Reds claim they want to pay £750,000 while Fulham are demanding £8m
Liverpool will discover the fee they have to pay Fulham for young winger Harvey Elliott in a tribunal on Tuesday.
The Reds signed the teenager as a 16-year-old in the summer of 2019 but could not agree a fee with the Cottagers so the matter has to be settled via a tribunal.
Elliott was not a professional player when he moved to Anfield due to his age, with Fulham demanding around £8million for the player. Liverpool claim they are prepared to spend £750,000.

The 17-year-old forward made two top-flight appearances for Jurgen Klopp’s Reds last season
Teams who sign footballers aged under 24 must pay a compensation fee if they secure the player while he is not on professional terms or once his contract comes to an end.
Elliott has made nine senior appearances for Jurgen Klopp’s side since his arrival in Merseyside, with eight of them coming last season.
The 17-year-old made six cup appearances last term and appeared twice in the Reds’ Premier League title-winning season.
Elliott was sent out on loan to Championship side Blackburn by Liverpool earlier this season
But after making just one appearance since signing his professional contract last July – in the 7-2 Carabao Cup victory over Lincoln City – the winger was sent on loan to Championship side Blackburn for the season.
He is enjoying a fruitful season in the second tier, scoring four goals and registering eight assists so far this term.
Before joining Liverpool, Elliott became the youngest ever Premier League player while playing for Fulham in 2019 at 16 years and 30 days. He still holds the record.
