Sky Sports journalist confirms Liverpool bid submitted for Fulham’s Fabio Carvalho

Posted by

Liverpool have reportedly ‘tabled a £5m bid’ for the services of Fabio Carvalho, with it being claimed that the Reds are looking to secure the Englishman’s signature before the January transfer window closes.

This comes in a tweet from Sky Sports reporter, Vinny O’Connor, with the Reds known to be tracking the Fulham starlet.

The potential acquisition of the 19-year-old would represent the club’s second signing of the window, having already purchased Porto’s Luis Diaz to the tune of £37.5m.

With the midfielder’s contract set to expire in the summer, there’s more than an element of pressure on Marco Silva’s outfit to accept a cut-price fee for their star man’s services or risk seeing him go for nothing at the end of the campaign.

£5m on our part for an extremely highly-rated talent – from a club that previously helped develop current Liverpool ace, Harvey Elliott – would, as such, represent a second bargain in the same window for us after Julian Ward led on the £37.5m deal for Luis Diaz.

With us reportedly set to lose James Milner in the summer, it’s a signing that would help us significantly lower the average of our midfield.
