Reds capture Carvalho

-Ikenna Okafor

Liverpool have wasted no time in strengthening their squad for next season by completing a £7.7million deal to sign Fabio Carvalho from Fulham.

Carvalho, a promising Portugal Under-21 international, will officially become a Liverpool player on July 1 having helped Fulham secure a return to the Premier League and is expected to be part of the squad that goes to the Far East on a pre-season tour.

Though he is only 19 and with little top flight experience, Liverpool have no intention of loaning back to Fulham and it is very much the intention for Carvalho to be part of Klopp’s squad.

Liverpool will pay an initial £5million for Carvalho, who joined Fulham’s Academy from Benfica in 2015, with a further £2.7million payable if certain objectives are realised. Fulham would also be due 20 per cent of any future sale, a clause similar to the one they inserted in the Elliott deal.

The striker stayed at Fulham to aid their promotion push with 11 goals in 38 appearances.

The Portuguese had featured for Fulham in the top flight on four occasions in the previous season, marking his first Premier League start with a goal away at Southampton in May 2021.
