Fulham had a fantastic season of games this season, winning the Championship title and securing a return to the Premier League for next season.
Despite all of these achievements, it appears like Fabio Carvalho will be leaving Craven Cottage in the summer transfer window-and the club’s owner, Tony Khan, has now stated that he “would have loved” to keep him at the club.
Carvalho has played a key role in Fulham’s return to the Premier League this season, scoring 11 goals and assisting seven times in 35 league appearances. Despite the fact that he is still a teenager, this demonstrates his talent and promise.
He only appeared in four games for the Cottagers when they were last in the Premier League, but he has been heavily relied on in the Championship and has really caught the eye with his level of play.
Liverpool is one team to keep an eye on him, with reports claiming that a deal has already been struck for him to transfer to Anfield this summer. The sum for the youngster might be in the seven figures, and now owner Khan has seemingly confirmed that he will be moving on this offseason.
They won’t want to lose him, but given the fees that could be thrown around, they may have no choice but to let him go and find work elsewhere. “I absolutely like Fabio,” Khan said.
He’s always been a player we’ve admired since he graduated from the academy, and we would have loved to keep him. But we’ve struck a deal that benefits the club, and it’s worked out beautifully since then since he’s been such an important part of the promotion. Fabio Carvalho appears to be a good fit for Liverpool based on his performances with Fulham in the Championship so far.
Of course, it’s debatable whether he’ll be able to make the step up to the top division having never played there before, but he’d be in good hands with the club. Jurgen Klopp, Pep Guardiola, has a track record of developing young players in their squads.
Carvalho may not see as much time at Anfield as he did with Fulham if he remains, but it appears that a move to a much bigger club is the next obvious step for the player. If it doesn’t happen this summer, it will undoubtedly happen soon-and it appears that the club is already prepared for life without the forward.
