Romano says Liverpool are planning Fabio Carvalho talks in coming weeks
Fabrizio Romano has told The Here We Go Podcast that Liverpool hope to resolve the future of Fabio Carvalho in the coming weeks after missing out on the Fulham starlet on the final day of the January transfer window.
Carvalho continues to shine in a Fulham side that look set to secure an immediate return to the Premier League. Unsurprisingly, a host of Premier League sides want the attacking midfielder Marco Silva labelled ‘fantastic‘.
Reports recently claimed that Arsenal and Tottenham want the 19-year-old with his deal up in the summer. Of course, the door is only open for others after Liverpool missed out on signing Carvalho at the end of the winter window.
Romano has suggested that Jurgen Klopp’s men came agonisingly close to landing the teenager. And he claimed that the Carabao Cup winners plan to step up their push to secure a deal in the near future.
“They hope to resolve, to fix the situation for the Fabio Carvalho deal in the coming weeks, to discuss with his agents, to discuss with Fulham and find a solution,” he told The Here We Go Podcast.
“It was a done deal on deadline day. It collapsed in the final minutes. Let’s see in the coming months if Liverpool will be able to complete the negotiation.”
Liverpool set to replicate Ibrahima Konate deal with Fabio Carvalho?
Obviously, Liverpool may not be able to announce anything for Carvalho outside of the transfer window. But perhaps there may be certain pieces of news that emerge that hint that a deal for the youngster is all but done ahead of the summer.
Of course, the Reds are no strangers to pushing transfers through ahead of the window opening. Last April, reports claimed that they were set to sign Ibrahima Konate when the campaign concluded.
Liverpool ultimately announced the deal in May with the move taking place in July.
Perhaps they may end up repeating the trick with Carvalho. It makes sense for Fulham to agree a fee. Previous reports claimed that Liverpool are prepared to loan him back to them should they get promoted.
So finalising a deal on good terms will surely be good for all parties while they focus on their respective title pushes.
