Chelsea and Liverpool go head-to-head to sign Fulham starlet

By | November 25, 2021

Chelsea are reportedly planning to make an approach for Fulham starlet Fabio Carvalho during the January transfer window.

While the Blues are currently well-stocked for youthful options in their squad, it would unlikely deter them from showing an interest in Carvalho.

The 19-year-old defender who plays for the teams West London neighbours, is out of contract at the end of the season and increasingly likely to leave Craven Cottage.

According to Eurosport, Chelsea are one of a number of teams who are keen on securing the services of the Fulham starlet during one of the next two transfer windows.

La Liga giants, Real Madrid are known admirers, while fellow Premier League teams Liverpool and Southampton have been tipped as a potential destination for the talented defender.

The report claims that Carvalho’s friendship with the Saints defender Tino Livramento, as well as a bigger chance of regular first-team football, could tip the scales in their favour.

Fulham will continue to try to agree on fresh terms with Portuguese starlet until the start of the January window.
