FC Barcelona target Harvey Elliott rejects Fulham contract

FC Barcelona are continuing to monitor Fulham's exciting teenage star Harvey Elliott, after he reportedly rejected a new contract at Craven Cottage.

Elliott made history in the 2018-19 Premier League season when he became the youngest ever player to make an appearance in the competition against Wolves, aged just 16 years and 30 days old.

The 16-year old has been linked with a move to the Camp Nou, after FC Barcelona scouts watched him play for the Cottagers youth team last season.

According to reports in Sky Sports this weekend, he has turned down a professional contract with the Championship side, and is assessing his options ahead of the 2019-20 season.

The England U17 international is attracting interest from a number of clubs, with Liverpool, RB Leipzig and La Liga rivals Real Madrid all reportedly ready to rival the Catalan side with a contract offer.

A move outside of England would see Fulham lose out on a compensation payment for Elliott, with Liverpool potentially having to pay around £250,000 if they can lure him to Anfield.
