Fabio Carvalho’s transfer to Liverpool Football Club at the end of the season has been confirmed.

This update comes courtesy of James Pearce and Peter Rutzler at The Athletic, with the reporters confirming that the deal taking the attacking midfielder to Merseyside will set the Reds back £5m.

Add-ons amounting to £2.7m and a 20% sell-on clause have been attached to the deal in question, with Jurgen Klopp’s men having been keen to avoid a tribunal or risking an overseas club snapping the player up for a pittance.
