The framework of a deal is in place which would see Fulham starlet Fabio Carvalho join Liverpool this summer according to a report.
It looked like the 19-year-old would be signed by Liverpool and loaned straight to Fulham until the end of the season on the last day of the January transfer window.
The delay in submitting the documents, however, meant that the deadline was missed and the deal fell through, but the two clubs still managed to process the loan deal for Neco Williams.
Since the transfer window closed, Jurgen Klopp has spoken openly of his admiration for the England Under-18 international and reports suggest both clubs and the player were still keen to sign a pre-deal.
According to Kevin PalmerThe framework of a deal is now in place for Carvalho to join Liverpool with talks ongoing but the Reds are trying to finalize the deal as soon as possible.
The reporter goes on to suggest that Fulham are looking to see if Carvalho can be loaned to them next season when they are likely to be a Premier League club.
Liverpool need to secure a deal for the talented youngster as soon as possible so no encouragement is being offered to other potential suitors of which there will be plenty.
According to Liverpool’s plans for next season for the player, loaning him out for a season of Premier League experience might not be a bad idea.
