Tottenham: Spurs leading Fabio Carvalho chase

Tottenham: Spurs leading Fabio Carvalho chase -Premier League

Tottenham are thought to be leading the likes of Leeds and West Ham in the race to sign Fulham teenager Fabio Carvalho, according to TEAMtalk.

The Lowdown: Carvalho profiled

Described as having immense on-ball running speed, Carvalho is 19 years of age and is primarily an attacking midfielder who can also play on either wing.

He’s made 13 senior appearances for Fulham, seven of which have come this season. Carvalho netted once in the Premier League last season and has scored three times during the current campaign – he has recently rejected a new contract at Craven Cottage.

The Englishman’s deal expires next summer and he is set to change agent in the New Year, and it seems as if Spurs and Fabio Paratici are looking to add him to Antonio Conte’s squad.

The Latest: Spurs leading the way

TEAMtalk shared an update regarding Carvalho on Thursday, claiming that Spurs, along with Liverpool and Southampton, are leading the Premier League chase for the teenager following initial interest from Leeds and West Ham.

European clubs Atletico Madrid, Benfica, Borussia Dortmund, Lyon, Monaco, Porto and Real Madrid are also keen on Carvalho, who was labelled as ‘lively’ by former boss Scott Parker.

The Verdict: Exciting move?

With ten clubs – including Champions League giants like Liverpool and Real Madrid – seemingly interested in Carvalho’s services, a switch to north London would surely be seen as a major coup for Paratici and Spurs in the long run.

Although he may not be ready for top-flight action under Conte straight away given his age, you’d expect he could develop into a first-team player under the leadership of the Italian.

He was involved in 52 goals for Fulham’s Under-18’s and 23’s before breaking into the first team and has progressed through England’s youth system through to the Under-18’s, so winning the race in a cut-price deal could be a great move.
