Liverpool: Fabrizio Romano gives a Fabio Carvalho update

Liverpool suffered a major blow to their transfer plans back in January when their deal to sign Fabio Carvalho fell through on Deadline Day in the very last moments, but now there has been a huge update that will surely excite supporters.

What’s the latest?

Italian journalist and transfer insider Fabrizio Romano has given an update (via Caught Offside) on Liverpool’s signing of Fabio Carvalho and their intentions for the player when he arrives at Anfield.

Romano told the sports news outlet:

“By the way, the first signing will be Fabio Carvalho: the official announcement is coming in the next few days, Fulham will receive £5m plus £2.7m add-ons.

“Liverpool want to keep him in the first team, a loan is not planned as of now.”

Supporters will be elated

Supporters of the Merseyside club will be elated that an update has finally been given on the attacking midfielder, as the transfer has been long-awaited and highly anticipated since it fell through four months ago.

In what year did Steven Gerrard make his Liverpool debut?

It was rumoured that the 19-year-old would be put back out on loan but supporters will also be glad to hear that the youngster will be given his opportunity to break into the team at Anfield if Romano’s update is to be believed.

Fulham have recently earned automatic promotion from the Championship after finishing top of the league at the end of the season, and to say Carvalho has played a crucial part in their achievement is an understatement.

According to SofaScore, the young attacker has scored ten goals and contributed eight assists, with an impressive 13 big chances created, making 1.7 key passes, 2.2 shots on goal and 1.1 tackles on average per game and has been successful in the majority of his dribbles (53%) proving that he is a huge attacking threat for Fulham, integral in the pressing and creative play in his 36 league appearances.

It’s safe to say Liverpool are not struggling for creativity in their team with 89 goals scored in the Premier League, but with Sadio Mane, Mo Salah and Bobby Firmino all in or hitting their 30s this season, getting in a fresh young attacking perspective that fits the playmaking and pressing profile is essential for building up the successors of the current attacking threats in the team.

With that being said, Jurgen Klopp will surely be thrilled to finally have the transfer wrapped up ahead of the summer and can get to work with the youngster ahead of next season to identify the role and impact he can make on the current Liverpool team.
