New Liverpool signing Fabio Carvalho will play a ‘key role’ immediately at Anfield next season, according to reliable journalist Dominic King.
The Lowdown: Carvalho move sealed
The 19-year-old has signed for the Reds ahead of officially joining on July 1st, in what is an exciting piece of business by the club.
While there could have been the option of loaning the attacker out immediately this summer, perhaps back at Fulham to gain top flight experience, that doesn’t look as though it will be the case.
The Latest: King drops interesting claim
Taking to Twitter, King claimed that Jurgen Klopp sees Carvalho as an immediate part of his plans from next season onwards:
“Liverpool have agreed a £7.7m deal with Fulham to sign Fabio Carvalho and he will officially move to Anfield on July 1. No intentions to loan Carvalho out next season, Liverpool see him as having a key role to play.”
The Verdict: One for the present & future
Carvalho looks like a huge prospect and it is encouraging to hear that he is already considered a massive part of Klopp’s plans in 2022/23.
The manager clearly thinks that he is ready to make a big impact from the off, with Fulham boss Marco Silva describing him as a ‘fantastic’ player.
The fact that Carvalho can operate in an attacking midfield role or across the front-line is perfect, in terms of versatility, and it could be that he begins to usurp more senior players in those roles, such as Roberto Firmino.
