Report: Jorge Mendes actively trying to send Fabio Carvalho to Liverpool

Agent Jorge Mendes wants Fabio Carvalho to sign for Liverpool, according to reports. The 19-year-old is in the final year of his contract with Fulham.

This comes from the Daily Mail. They claim that Jorge Mendes wants Fabio Carvalho at Liverpool.

Now, Mendes doesn’t actually represent Carvalho. Instead, he’s using the Reds to try and ‘woo’ the teenager, promising him a big move if he signs with him.

And a big move is very possible, given the 19-year-old’s contract with Fulham expires at the end of the season.

Mendes tried both Real Madrid and Barcelona, apparently, but without any luck. He believes Liverpool could push through a move, however, as Harvey Elliott has been such a success.

The Reds have interest and may act on it. Mendes hopes to get involved, seeing Carvalho as a future star and believes he could broker a deal if allowed.

Fabio Carvalho to Liverpool?

We’ve labelled Carvalo a genuine opportunity before. He’s a very talented young player, shining in the Championship and available for next to nothing.

So this does all add up. As pointed out, Liverpool found such success with Elliott that trying again with another talented Fulham prospect might make some sense.

But really, that’s a very minor part of this. Carvalho is an exciting talent in his own right and started this season brilliantly before picking up an injury.

The playmaker grabbed three goals and an assist in his first four starts. A goal and assist against Millwall in a 2-1 away win stands out – that’s pretty decisively match-winning.

It’s impressive from a player who only turned 19 at the end of August. He’s still very young and, if Liverpool feel he has potential, there’s likely a lot of room for growth.

We think this is one to watch, then. Perhaps even as early as January, depending on Liverpool’s plans and Fulham’s desire to cash in.
