Liverpool are reportedly in talks with Fulham over a £5million move for 19-year-old Fabio Carvalho.

Carvalho has less than six months left on his contract with the Championship side and will be available for a compensation fee in the summer.

Liverpool have made an offer for the attacking midfielder though Fulham remain determined to keep hold of Carvalho with head coach Marco Silva publicly ruling out his imminent departure last week.

Liverpool may consider loaning Carvalho back as part of any agreement with Fulham keen for the teenager to play his part in their promotion push.

If a compromise can be reached now, that would avoid losing him for a compensation fee in the summer and Liverpool will fend off fierce competition.

Carvalho has been at Fulham since he was 14 but has decided against signing a new deal.

Liverpool signed Carvalho’s former youth team-mate Harvey Elliott from Fulham in 2019, in a deal that required a tribunal with Liverpool ordered to pay an initial fee of £1.2m for the then 16-year-old with add-ons to £4.3 million.

Fulham had initially wanted closer to £10m.

Liverpool sold Harry Wilson to Fulham for a fee rising to £12m last year but under the terms of that deal, Liverpool agreed to wait until this year for the first instalment to help Fulham navigate FFP protocols.
