Romano: Liverpool are scouting 'fantastic' Championship teenager
Liverpool are among the clubs keen on signing Fulham teenager, Fabio Carvalho, according to respected journalist and transfer guru, Fabrizio Romano.
Carvalho is one of the standout teenage talents in English football at the moment. He burst onto the scene last year and started this season fire, scoring three in five games before being injured for Fulham. However, he has turned down offers of a new contract at Craven Cottage and is free to leave in the summer.
And according to Fabrizio Romano, Liverpool have sent scouts to watch the 19-year-old as they look to keep tabs on the attacker.
“Many clubs are keeping an eye on him. Liverpool sent their scouts to watch him so it’s about scouting and not negotiating at the moment. So we will see if Liverpool will decide in the coming months to jump into negotiations for him,” Romano told the Anfield Watch website and YouTube channel.
“As of now, it’s just a scouting activity as they do for many players. So it’s nothing like advanced or a priority for Liverpool. I’m sure that he will have loads of opportunities if he’s not extending his contract with Fulham. But nothing has been decided yet.”
Carvalho has scored four times this season in 13 games for Marco Silva’s side. The youngster has impressed, too, with Silva labelling Carvalho ‘fantastic’ after the Cottagers saw off Millwall.
TBR’s View: Liverpool A Good Fit For Fabio Carvalho
You can’t beat getting your hands on the best up and coming youngsters in football if you’re a top club. Liverpool have done it before with Harvey Elliott from Fulham, and Carvalho fits a similar bill.
If you’re Carvalho, then you’ll be buoyed by seeing how many young players have got minutes this season at Anfield. That, and the fact Liverpool are simply a huge historic club.
This would be smart business from the Reds. Carvalho is a serious talent and at 19, is only going to get better and better.
