"Will resist..." - Liverpool make Fabio Carvalho stance clear amid reports starlet wants Anfield exit
| Last updated
Liverpool do not want to sell wantaway starlet Fabio Carvalho, it has been claimed.
On Monday transfer guru Fabrizio Romano claimed that Carvalho could leave the Reds on a permanent deal in the summer window.
The Italian journalist alleged that Liverpool had received a permanent bid for the 20-year-old from a club abroad, while several Premier League clubs had submitted loan offers for the youngster.
The Portugal Under-21 international, who signed a five-year deal with Liverpool last summer, has made 21 appearances across all competitions in his first campaign on Merseyside – netting three times.
Liverpool won’t allow Carvalho to leave permanently
According to a fresh Times report, Liverpool will resist permanent offers to sign Carvalho but will listen to loan proposals for the attacking midfielder.
The 20-year-old reportedly wants to play more regularly, and Jurgen Klopp will allegedly listen to the youngster regarding his development.
The report named RB Leipzig as the European outfit that submitted a “derisory” offer for the Carvalho and supported Romano’s claim that several Premier League clubs have enquired about the player’s availability.
However, Liverpool allegedly see the Fulham academy graduate as a future starter, hence their hardline stance.
Only last week Klopp praised the player’s attitude despite him not featuring for long periods, claiming that sets him apart from other aspiring talents.
Liverpool spent around £5million plus add-ons on Carvalho in 2022 after the youngster's impressive breakthrough at Fulham.
He notched 11 goals and eight assists across 38 appearances as the then-Championship side surged to promotion.
