Fulham face a battle to keep hold of wonderkid Harvey Elliott as Chelsea, Manchester City and Barcelona are all showing an interest. Elliott is just 15 years of age and with the Cottagers unable to tie him down to a professional contract until he is 17, they find themselves in a vulnerable position.
The young midfielder has impressed while playing in the Under-18 Premier League, catching the eye when providing two assists in nine games so far this season.
He has also been training with the first team and looks sure to follow in the footsteps of Ryan Sessegnon and make the first team if handed the chance.
Fulham are said to be hopeful of keeping Elliot just like they did with Sessegnon, who has also been targeted by some of Europe’s big guns over the years.
Even so, their resolve is expected to be tested soon enough with the likes of Barca said to be keeping a close eye on the situation.
