Liverpool youngster Fabio Carvalho is set to leave the club this summer after a frustrating debut season, sources have told Football Insider. The 20-year-old joined from Fulham last May but only managed 342 minutes of Premier League action and has been informed he will not be part of Jurgen Klopp’s first-team plans for the 2023-24 campaign.
Having been frozen out of the squad, Carvalho is now set to join an unnamed Champions League club after they submitted a big-money bid for the youngster. Although there has been no official confirmation from either Liverpool or the buying club, Football Insider sources indicate that this could be the most likely outcome in the coming months.
Carvalho enjoyed a fine spell with Fulham before joining Liverpool and established himself as one of their most highly-rated young players, making 19 appearances in all competitions. However, he was unable to break into the first team at Anfield and found opportunities hard to come by under Jurgen Klopp.
The news of Carvalho’s potential departure has reportedly been met with sadness among the players and staff at Liverpool, who are said to have wished him well in his future endeavours. With a deal seemingly close to completion, Carvalho could become the latest young player to leave Anfield this summer as Klopp looks to revamp his squad ahead of the new season.
The Portuguese midfielder’s move will be a huge loss for Liverpool, who are trying to build a team capable of competing with Europe’s elite. Although Carvalho didn’t have the impact Klopp may have hoped for at Anfield, he is still a talented player and could become a key figure in an ambitious Champions League squad.
It remains to be seen where Carvalho will end up, but an announcement is expected soon. Liverpool fans will have to wait and see how the 20-year-old develops away from Anfield as he looks for a new challenge elsewhere.
