Liverpool will head to Italy very soon for the Champions League last-16 first leg against Inter Milan. We’ve all the match build-up there, plus a potential summer deal on the line.
Carvalho talks next week
Liverpool very nearly added Fulham talented teen Fabio Carvalho on transfer deadline day, but all is not lost and we’re back in discussions over a move in the summer instead.
Not much would change for the player in that regard as the Reds would have loaned him back for this term anyway, so the only issue now is getting the deal done before other clubs get involved.
Reports say that Liverpool would love to get the deal done “as soon as possible” and there are talks set between the clubs this week.
Personal terms are already agreed of course, so it should be a routine transfer to push through eventually.
