'My goodness': Liverpool told they've signed an 'incredibly talented' player who's simply the real deal
Sam Parkin of talkSPORT has lavished praise on Fabio Carvalho, who was signed by Liverpool from Fulham last month.
The 19-year-old was originally supposed to join the Reds in the January transfer window. Liverpool even had a deal agreed with Fulham, but they ran out of time on transfer deadline day.
There were a few fears about other teams coming in for Carvalho, but Liverpool remained confident and got the deal over the line last month for £4.17 million plus add-ons. (LiverpoolFC.com)
Carvalho is expected to join Jurgen Klopp and the lads this summer and Parkin believes the Reds have signed an outstanding young player.

Liverpool new boy Fabio Carvalho is an ‘incredibly talented’ player
Parkin said on talkSPORT: “He’s incredibly talented, I love his ability to go beyond people. The skills, the finishing, the technique, but it’s the awareness too.
“Sometimes you see a 17, 18, 19 year old and you think ‘how does he understand the game at this tender age?’ But my goodness he does. He doesn’t give it away, he can use his body physically.
“He’s the real deal, he’s as good as I’ve seen in the Championship for a long time.
“I think he’s totally capable of coming on and changing the dynamic of a Premier League game.”
Should Klopp send him out on loan?
Liverpool’s Fabio Carvalho has been a star for Fulham in the Championship. The teenager has scored 10 goals and provided eight assists in 35 league appearances and he’s one of the biggest reasons why the Whites are back in the Premier League.
The teenager will make his move to Liverpool this summer and although many people feel a loan move would be good for him, Klopp may decide otherwise.
The Reds boss has never really been the biggest advocate of loan deals. The German has preferred to have his youngsters around his first-team squad as he feels they’ll learn much more at Liverpool than elsewhere.
Klopp could well do the same with Carvalho and have him around the club next season. He won’t get a lot of game time, which is a shame, but rubbing shoulders with the likes of Mo Salah and Thiago will certainly do him a world of good.
