Liverpool are reportedly set to battle it out with West Ham United for Fulham’s Fabio Carvalho.
Carvalho played as a junior for Balham Blazers. The 19-year-old moved to Fulham in 2014 before signing his first professional deal in 2020 at Craven Cottage.
Carvalho has scored six goals in 19 appearances for the Whites which included a goal in the Premier League before the club were relegated last season.
The Sun are reporting that Liverpool are weighing up a £5million offer but that the Hammers are also ready to pounce.
The publications adds that Leeds United and Porto are also interested in a move for the Portuguese-born attacker.
They say that Liverpool will have to tread carefully because there is still bad feeling between the two clubs due to Harvey Elliott’s switch to Anfield in 2019.
Carvalho has six months left on his deal and Fulham are weighing up whether to cash in or take their chances on being awarded a bigger fee in the summer.
