In a recent report, The Daily Mail mentioned that Liverpool are among several clubs hoping to recruit Fulham playmaker Fabio Carvalho. It is understood that the Reds could face competition from Leeds United and West Ham United in pursuit of the English attacker.
Carvalho’s Impressive Rise At Craven Cottage Recently
The 19-year-old has given a good account of himself as a key member of Marco Silva’s attack during this campaign. Carvalho has banged in eight goals and grabbed two assists in 18 matches for the Cottagers this season across all fronts.
The talented teenager has proven himself to be a consistent performer in the attacking end of the field by averaging 2.1 shots, 1.5 key passes and 1.2 dribbles per game in the English Championship. He has even been excellent when linking up play with others around him based on his pass completion rate of 80.5% in the second tier of English football (stats via whoscored).
Is Carvalho A Decent Choice For Liverpool Boss Jurgen Klopp?
Carvalho can be a joy to watch when he is dribbling at full swing towards the opponent’s penalty box. He has got the eye to play a decisive pass in the final third and can even chip in by scoring his fair share of goals up top.
The English talent is always willing to have a strike at goal and usually keeps possession moving relatively well in the opposition half.
An up-and-coming playmaker of Carvalho’s skillset will be a decent choice for Liverpool as he will bring more creativity and dynamism to Jurgen Klopp‘s attack.
The Reds head coach could be the perfect man to oversee Carvalho’s development and get the best out of him at Anfield in the coming seasons. At 19, the Fulham whizkid has got a very bright future ahead of him.
With less than six months remaining in his current Fulham contract, Liverpool would be wise to arrange a cut-price move to bring Carvalho to the red half of Merseyside during this winter transfer window. Another option for the Reds would be to wait for the youngster until he becomes a free agent at the end of this campaign.
