Reigning European champions Liverpool have been asked to pay £9m for new signing Harvey Elliott by his former club Fulham.
This is according to Sky Sports which revealed that the Reds are reluctant to pay the said compensation from the Cottagers.
It was revealed that the compensation package will be decided by the Professional Football Compensation Committee.
Liverpool would be hoping to pay less than the aforementioned £9m compensation fee for Harvey Elliott who joined the club from Fulham last week.
The 16-year-old was the second signing of this summer’s transfer window for Liverpool after Sepp Van Der Berg.

Young Dutch defender Van Der Berg had earlier joined Liverpool from PEC Zwolle of the Netherlands this summer.
Liverpool paid £4.4m to sign the young centre back from PEC Zwolle.
Harvey Elliott is clearly one for the future but he has already shown what to expect from him on the back of his debut for the club at the weekend.
The 16-year-old featured for Liverpool during the club friendly with Italian Serie A giants Napoli at the weekend.
Liverpool were beaten 3-0 by the Italian club led by Carlo Ancelotti.
Harvey Elliott came through the ranks at Fulham which explains why the Cottagers will receive a compensation fee for him.
