Despite already departing the club on loan and picking up three major honours in his debut season, Liverpool still haven’t agreed a fee with Fulham for Harvey Elliott.
A deal for the teenager’s transfer was struck in 2019, but a tribunal has now been set for next week in which a fee should finally be agreed between the two sides.
That’s according to The Athletic, who state that Fulham want a whopping £10million for Elliot whereas Liverpool were prepared to offer £750,000.
The difference between the two fees is shocking, but it seems like both clubs are exaggerating their valuation of the youngster, with the Londoners inflating and the Reds low-balling.
Based entirely on opinion, we think a fee of around £6.5million will be set – and that’d still be a steal for Liverpool.
Elliott has been smashing it at Blackburn Rovers on loan this season, racking up an impressive 12 goal contributions in 22 Championship games so far.
A player of his age going into the second tier from a Premier League side and slotting into the first-team is almost unheard of, but the 17-year-old is freakishly good.
Elliott will return from his loan at Blackburn this summer.
