Liverpool are confident of agreeing a pre-contract deal to sign Fabio Carvalho from Fulham in July after the Reds ran out of time to secure the wonderkid’s signature on deadline day.

  • Liverpool wanted to sign 19-year-old Fulham midfielder Fabio Carvalho
  • The Reds were negotiating a £5million deal but were running out of time to complete the deal
  • They will now continue to discuss with Fulham to agree compensation
  • If the two parties fail to reach an agreement, a fee will be set by a court











Liverpool are confident of agreeing a pre-contract deal to sign Fabio Carvalho from Fulham in July.

Jurgen Klopp’s side ran out of time despite accepting a fee as they tried to sign the 19-year-old on Monday and loan him out to Fulham.

The teenager will now see out the remaining six months of his contract at Craven Cottage.

But the Reds will continue to talk with the Championship side as they try to agree compensation.

If the two sides fail to reach an agreement, a fee will be decided by the court, in a situation similar to that which saw Harvey Elliot move from Craven Cottage to Anfield in 2019.

Liverpool were negotiating a £5million transfer for the highly-rated midfielder and had made an offer.

But the Cottagers remained determined to keep Carvalho after head coach Marco Silva publicly ruled out his impending departure last week and introduced a mandatory clause to loan the teenager to the club for the rest of the season in their negotiations. .

The Reds appeared ready to meet those demands but ultimately failed to complete the deal by Monday’s deadline.

Carvalho, meanwhile, has been in fine form for Championship leaders Fulham – who top the second tier by five points – scoring seven goals and registering four assists this season.

Liverpool would be entitled to compensation if Carvalho joined another English team at the end of his contract, while continental clubs would only have to pay a small fee.

But if a compromise can be reached now, it would mean Fulham avoid losing the midfielder for a compensation fee this summer and Liverpool fend off fierce competition.
