Fulham are demanding a £7m fee from Liverpool over the summer transfer of Harvey Elliott, according to a report.
The 16-year-old, who was given his debut by the Cottagers at the age of 15, turned down a scholarship in West London in favour of a move to Anfield earlier this year.
Due to spending a good deal of time with Fulham’s academy, however, the club are now able to claim a development fee from Liverpool based on the Elite Player Performance Plan (EPPP), according to the Daily Mirror.
Furthermore, Times journalist Paul Joyce has said that the Cottagers want £7m in compensation for Elliott, adding that the actual amount will likely be decided by the Professional Football Compensation Committee.
Elliott became the youngest-ever player in Liverpool’s history to start a game, as he impressed in Wednesday’s 2-0 EFL Cup win over MK Dons.
James Milner stole the show, however, the midfielder scoring and assisting Ki-Jana Hoever‘s goal as the Reds set up a fourth-round clash with Arsenal at Anfield.
Liverpool face a number of games before the clash with Arsenal, however, the first of which sees them take on Sheffield United in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.
