Liverpool have plans to announce the signing of Fabio Carvalho “within weeks” even though he will not join the club officially until July 1st.
The Reds have completed negotiations with Fulham to secure his signature ahead of the competition but out of respect for the Cottagers, they have delayed revealing his move to Liverpool.
Fabrizio Romano tweeted on the 11th of April that the Reds have “decided to announce Fabio Carvalho’s signing in the coming weeks to respect Fulham, their fans and player still focused on Championship.”
He added: “The negotiation is 100% completed, as exclusively reported last Thursday. No chance for other clubs to hijack the deal.”
Today, Football Insider have corroborated the story by reporting that Liverpool plan to announce the 19-year-old’s move to Anfield “within weeks” even if he will not actually join the club until the start of July.
Personal terms have been agreed with Carvalho after a medical was completed while a compensation fee has been decided on with Fulham for developing the exciting young attacking midfielder.
His move to Liverpool will be made officially public at the end of the Championship season in May which means the Reds could announce his signing any time after the 7th of May, Fulham’s final game of the season against Sheffield United.
That means his move to Liverpool is less than two weeks away from being made public and so fans have good reason to begin getting excited about the young lad even if there is still so much amazing football to watch this season.
Carvalho has scored 10 goals and assisted 7 this term and will no doubt be fondly remembered by Fulham fans.
Since they’ve secured promotion to the Premier League, he won’t have to wait long to come up against his soon-to-be former side.
It’s exciting to think about what Klopp could achieve with an attacking midfielder like Carvalho, who loves to make runs from deep into the box which would give Liverpool even more of an attacking threat next season.
