Virals: Liverpool have ‘agreement in principle’ to sign Fabio Carvalho
Liverpool have reportedly reached an ‘agreement in principle’ to sign Fulham starlet Fabio Carvalho.
The Reds were on the verge of bringing the 19-year-old to Anfield during the January transfer window before the transfer deadline halted any progress.
Now it would appear that a deal for the exciting youngster remains on the cards and a switch to Merseyside is a mere formality.
That’s according to a report from Football Insider, as cited by ThinkLFCTV on Twitter.

The report claims that Liverpool remain ‘confident of pushing the deal over the line’ for the one-cap Portugal Under 21 international following a January medical.
So far this season Carvalho – who was hailed as ‘fantastic’ by Marco Silva – has scored seven times and registered six assists in 27 Championship outings.

Valued at £3.15million and out of contract at the end of this season (Transfermarkt), both clubs are said to be keen to avoid a tribunal to decipher the compensation fee.
Instead, the Reds may again be willing to shell out £8million for the talented attacking midfielder.
Predominantly operating in advanced central positions, Carvalho would add w whole new dimension to the midfield ranks at Jurgen Klopp’s disposal and may well spell the end of the road for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain on Merseyside.
