Liverpool remain “confident” that a move for Fulham midfielder Fabio Carvalho will be finalised, despite failing to secure his signature during the January transfer window, according to Fabrizio Romano
The Red had agreed an £8m fee for the 19-year-old, with the player having undergone a medical, but the paperwork was not submitted in time before last night’s deadline. However, Romano claims that a move could still happen:
Liverpool are confident to find a solution with Fulham for Fabio Carvalho deal to be completed in June – best way to avoid tribunal and proceed with same conditions in the summer. Medical done in Liverpool yesteday. 🔴 #LFC

Other teams, including Chelsea, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund are also interested in Carvalho, and the danger is that foreign clubs (in particular) could get a deal done ahead of next summer.
As Romano points out, though, Carvalho and his agent are keen on completing a deal with Liverpool, so if everything goes to plan, the player is still likely to move to Anfield at the end of the season.
Considering their original offer was to loan Carvalho back to Fulham until June anyway, it shouldn’t make much of a difference in the grand scheme of things.
