Finding young talent is an ongoing process.
Attracting it to the club is an essential part of the evolution of a playing squad.
However, it seems that having done the above then the next biggest challenge appears to be hanging on to it.
One such talented youngster in Harvey Elliott.
With the international break now upon us, several of the Fulham squad are away with their national squads.
As a consequence, Harvey Elliott has been drafted into the first-team squad for training.
The 15-year-old has been enjoying the experience.
However, his abilities, according to the news source, the Evening Standard, have seen Elliott attract the attention of some big name clubs, with Chelsea, Manchester City and the Catalan giants, Barcelona all following the progress of the youngster, thereby illustrating my earlier point perfectly.
Now whether Fulham can hang on to their exciting young midfielder remains to be seen, we can only wait and hope that is the case.
