Liverpool only have one transfer deal they could push through before the window shuts on 31st January, according to stunning reports.
Reds manager Jurgen Klopp has been without Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Naby Keita after the Liverpool trio reported for Africa Cup of Nations duty.
Despite the huge blow of losing Salah and Mane, Liverpool have remained quiet in the window and have opted against signing a new forward option.
Salah is out of contract in 2023 and it is believed that Liverpool are focused on signing him to a new long-term deal ahead of making any major signings.
However, The Athletic now reports that one player is on the Reds’ radar and could arrive at Anfield in what has been a ‘quiet transfer window’ for Liverpool.
According to reports, Liverpool have registered their interest in signing Fulham attacking midfielder Fabio Carvalho.
Carvalho has been in impressive form for Fulham this season and has scored eight times and registered two assists in 18 appearances across all competitions.
The 19-year-old Portugal-born Fulham star, who has represented England at youth level, is out of contract with the Championship side in the summer.
Carvalho made his Premier League debut last season before Fulham were relegated to the Championship, with both Leeds and West Ham interested in signing him.
Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano reported last Sunday that Liverpool have been ‘monitoring’ the England Under-18s international as a ‘top future talent for months.’

According to The Athletic, Liverpool’s January window is ‘unlikely to change before the deadline’ unless Fulham decide to cash in on Carvalho.
The publication claims the Reds will have a ‘decision to make’ over Carvalho amid rival Premier League clubs’ interest in signing the Fulham player.
Liverpool have reportedly been ‘monitoring the teenager’s situation closely,’ with Romano also suggesting that the Reds are ‘watching him closely.’
Fulham are desperate to keep Carvalho at Craven Cottage and will attempt to renew contract talks ahead of his deal expiring at the end of the season.
