Report: Arsenal and Tottenham want Fabio Carvalho, but Liverpool on pole
Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur have joined the race to sign Fabio Carvalho, but the Daily Star reports that the pair are already resigned to missing out on the Liverpool target.
Carvalho continues to stand out in a brilliant Fulham side. Despite suffering a defeat on Saturday, Marco Silva’s men remain on course for an immediate return to the Premier League.
And Carvalho has been one of their standouts. The 19-year-old has scored seven goals in the Championship. Meanwhile, he has also provided five assists.
He also scored in the FA Cup tie with Manchester City this month.
Carvalho looked to be incredibly close to joining Liverpool in January. However, the Reds were ultimately unable to get a deal across the line.
He is out of contract in the summer. And Liverpool are planning a fresh move. In fact, the Daily Star reports that Jurgen Klopp’s side have already negotiated a fee, with Fulham due compensation.
Liverpool also plan to loan Carvalho back to the Cottagers should they seal promotion.
However, Manchester United want to throw a spanner in the works. And it is suggested that they lead the charge with the Reds.
Meanwhile, the Gunners, Spurs and West Ham also want Carvalho. But the Daily Star adds that the trio believe that they are all set to miss out.
Arsenal and Tottenham must last-ditch bid to snatch Carvalho from Liverpool or Manchester United
Carvalho looks to be a special talent. This is his first full season in the Fulham first-team. And before that, he had scored 16 goals in 39 games for the under-23s.
Silva labelled him ‘fantastic‘ earlier this season. And the list of clubs chasing his signature tells its own story.
Arsenal have signed some outstanding young players of late. Meanwhile, Tottenham have a relationship with Fulham having signed Ryan Sessegnon from them in 2019.
Carvalho, in all honesty, looks to have the potential to be an amazing talent for any Premier League side.
Liverpool and Manchester United are reportedly in the driving seat. But Arsenal and Tottenham will kick themselves if they do not make a last-ditch play for the youngster.
