Liverpool could sign versatile attacker for free as wonderkid turns down contract offers – report

Posted by

Liverpool could benefit from Fabio Carvalho’s reported stance on his Fulham future, with the highly-rated youngster said to have turned down multiple offers to extend his stay in London.

This comes from TEAMtalk, with the publication claiming that the Reds and fellow Premier League outfit Tottenham are at the front of the pack when it comes to the teenager’s potential suitors.

Ralph Hasenhuttl’s outfit is likewise allegedly interested, though one might suspect that the former pair would be of more interest to the 19-year-old should either express an interest in the summer.
