Latest Liverpool transfer news: Fulham hope Reds pay more than £10m for Elliott

The Evening Standard reports that Fulham hope that Liverpool pay a record compensation of more than £10m for Harvey Elliott.

The 16-year-old left the Cottagers to join Liverpool after rejecting a scholarship from the Championship club.

The report adds that a tribunal will decide the compensation that Liverpool owe Fulham after Elliott made the switch.

The 16-year-old has already featured for the Liverpool first-team, in the pre-season clash against Napoli, and is with the team for their Evian training camp.

Fulham hope for an upfront payment and a percentage of any profit the Reds may make by selling the English winger in the future (h/t Evening Standard).

Liverpool hold record compensation paid for star

The Reds signed Danny Ings from Burnley a few years ago in a similar move, and had to pay a record compensation.

The tribunal ordered the Reds to fork out £6.5m and £1.5m in add-ons plus 20% of any profit Liverpool made from Ings’ sale (h/t Evening Standard).

The English striker was loaned out to Southampton last season and made a permanent move this summer.

Elliott is one of the brightest players in the English system, and it is a bit of a coup for Liverpool to sign the 16-year-old.

The winger holds the record for being the youngest player to feature in a Premier League game, and it will be interesting to see how things go with him next season.
