The tribunal to determine how much Liverpool will have to pay Fulham for the services of Harvey Elliott will begin today, according to The Athletic.
It is claimed that the Cottagers want to recoup £10 million for the player who came through their youth ranks and made three first-team appearances.
Fulham believe they should be compensated for their role in his development at a young age.
Eliott checked in at Anfield in the summer of 2019, with Liverpool offering less just £750,000 in the way of compensation.
The teenager is currently on loan at Blackburn Rovers as he continues his development in men’s football.
He has played 23 times in Tony Mowbray’s team, scoring four goals and registering eight assists.
Elliott is fancied as a future star by Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp and he’s been given nine first-team opportunities to date.
The 17-year-old typically plays on the right-flank but has featured on the opposite side on two occasions this season.
TBR View: Elliott still a snip at £10 million
Even if Liverpool suffer the worst-case scenario and need to fork out for the youngster, it’ll still prove a decent deal.
Elliott has been impressive on loan in the Championship and at 17, that certainly bodes well for the future.
The trickster has the potential to be a star at Premier League level and nothing seems to faze him.
It’s easy to see why Fulham are perhaps disgruntled to lose him and they have a right to demand such a sum.
Liverpool shouldn’t be put out by the £10 million valuation though and he could still be worth every single penny.
