Liverpool announced the signing of highly rated Fulham midfielder Harvey Elliot last week but it appears that the London club wants a record compensation fee for his services.
The Evening Standard claims that Fulham have taken Liverpool to the tribunal after failing to agree a transfer fee.
The Cottagers believe that the Reds are to compensate them to the tune of £10 million for player’s services as well as a percentage of his sell-on fee for the youngster. This would trump the £8 million that the Reds paid for Danny Ings in 2015. Elliot is regarded as one of the next best prospects in England.
It is understood that Fulham believes that £10 million represents a good value for the youngster who has been likened to Steven Gerard. Liverpool believe that the player is worth a lower fee and the Tribunal is likely to deliver it’s verdict in the coming weeks.
Liverpool have been quiet this summer with the club failing to make big money moves in the window. It is thought that Klopp is satisfied with the quality of players at his disposal and wants to add talented youth players that could develop and make their way into the first team.
Elliot will be looking at defender Trent Alexander-Arnold as a role model as he begins his time at the club. If Elliot can develop into his potential, the £10, million fee would be seen as a bargain.
