Fabio Carvalho 'to leave Liverpool' just one year after being signed by Jurgen Klopp
| Last updated
Fabio Carvalho is set to leave Liverpool just one year after joining, according to Fabrizio Romano.
The Reds have endured a topsy-turvy season marked by poor form and a string of injuries to key players.
Jurgen Klopp’s men are currently in eighth place in the Premier League, some nine points adrift of the all-important Champions League spots, while they have long been eliminated from all three cup competitions.
Despite a poor bill of health for the likes of Thiago Alcantara and Jordan Henderson at various points of the campaign, one player that has struggled to make his mark is Carvalho.
The youngster, who was described as “special” by Klopp last summer, has made 19 appearances in all competitions this term, scoring three goals in that time.
However, having barely featured since the term of the year, it appears the 20-year-old looks set to leave Anfield just a year after arriving from Fulham.
Romano on Carvalho
Speaking on the Here We Go Podcast, Romano named Carvalho among those who will leave Liverpool, while discussing a potential summer clear-out at the club.
However, the transfer guru did not specify whether the player would leave Liverpool on loan or a permanent deal.
Romano explained: “I see Liverpool going for two or three midfielders because Naby Keita is out, Oxlade-Chamberlain is out and James Milner needs to decide on his future.
“Will they also go for one more striker or another type of player in one of those positions?
“Fabio Carvalho I am told is also leaving. We have to see what solution they will find but he is young and he is never playing so it is important to clarify these things.”
Indeed, Liverpool have been tipped for a major midfield rebuild this term upon the aforementioned departures of Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain upon the expiry of their contracts.
While the club have opted not to pursue a deal for Jude Bellingham, the Reds are thought to be interested in Chelsea duo Mason Mount and Conor Gallagher.
